Anti-Human Trafficking Panel

Join us on October 26, 2015 for a discussion with UK Anti-Human Trafficking luminaries

The panel will feature an overview of AHT and highlight implications, key differences, and best practices from the 2015 UK Modern Slavery Act.

Expert Anti-Human Trafficking Panel

You are cordially invited to Deloitte’s expert Anti-Human Trafficking Panel featuring UK leaders who helped drive landmark legislation forward, including the UK Modern Slavery Act: Justine Currell and Andrew Wallis.

2015 has been a landmark year for anti-human trafficking legislation: the UK enacted the Modern Slavery Act, the US FAR strengthened protections against trafficking in government contracts, and three landmark civil class action lawsuits were filed against large corporations in the US.

The panel will give practitioners insights into the implications of this legislation, best practices, and future steps to eradicate human trafficking, with a focus on how business and government can think about approaching this often invisible problem within supply chains.
