The Modern Day Slavery Act came into force in the UK in October 2015. There are an estimated 30 million people enslaved today, 68% are subject to forced labour. The International Labour Organisation (ILO) estimates that the profit generated by forced labour is USD150 Billion annually. The act consolidates slavery and trafficking offences and introduces tougher penalties and sentencing rules. The changes ensure that the National Crime Agency, the Police and other Law Enforcement agencies have the power to pursue, disrupt and bring to justice those engaged in human trafficking and slavery, servitude and forced or compulsory labour. It also introduces measures to enhance the protection of victims of slavery and trafficking. Denby Holdings Ltd has a zero tolerance to slavery and human trafficking and is committed to legal compliance with the Modern Slavery Act, it’s ethical standards and fundamental Human Rights.
