UK GOVERNMENT ANNOUNCES COMMITMENT TO SIGNIFICANTLY INCREASE MODERN SLAVERY ACT REPORTING REQUIREMENTS

On 12 October, Ropes & Gray LLP published an Alert saying that the Government has indicated it is “committing to an ambitious package of measures to strengthen and future-proof the Modern Slavery Act’s transparency legislation”.  Among other things, it indicated it will require specific topics to be addressed in modern slavery statements, establish a single reporting deadline for all companies and require companies to submit their statements to a new Government registry. These and other contemplated changes to the Act and modern slavery reporting more generally are described in the Alert.   The Government indicated that these changes will be made when parliamentary time allows.
