Is There Slavery In Your Supply Chain? Small Business Guide to Modern Slavery

FSB joins Liverpool University's Heseltine Institute, the Centre for the 'Study of International Slavery' and the 'International Slavery Museum' for launch of new guide.  The guide to help businesses meet their responsibilities and supply chain obligations under the new:- 'Modern Slavery Act' is to be launched at an event, on Wednesday, 8 June 2016 at Liverpool's historic Athenaeum club. 'The Modern Slavery Act' came into force in 2015. Section 54 adds the requirement for large companies (turnover more than £36m) to report on supply chains from 1 April 2016. This will generate a demand for audits and reports from smaller companies in their supply chains.  The event will feature the University of Liverpool's Dr Alex Balch and Glynn Rankin, who will highlight the major supply chain issues and requirements for small businesses. Representatives from FSB's Merseyside, West Cheshire and Wigan region and Liverpool and Knowsley branch will be on hand to welcome guests to the Athenaeum. Established in the 18th Century, previous proprietors of the club include William Roscoe, 1 of the most prominent slavery abolitionists. Is There Slavery In Your Supply Chain? Small Business Guide To Modern Slavery, is to take place from 5.30pm to 8pm, on Wednesday, 8 June 2016, at The Athenaeum, Church Alley, Liverpool, L1 3DD.
