On Monday 18th October 2010, the first UK Anti-Slavery Day took place, following the UK Anti-Slavery Act being passed into law in April 2010.
For the last decade, Anti-Slavery Day has been recognised as an opportunity to raise awareness of the dangers and consequences of modern-day slavery and human trafficking.
As the UK's biggest recruiter, it is our duty to do everything we can to protect our workers against modern slavery and prevent criminal gangs from operating within our supply chains. Our dedicated Compliance Team work alongside numerous government bodies, including the REC, ALP, GLAA and actively work with UK police forces to assist in our investigations.
In the last three years, Staffline has helped to rescue 110 victims of modern slavery and helped to support 30 survivors into work.
To help raise awareness during Anti-Slavery Day, we have launched an internal learning campaign for our colleagues through the LXP (Learner Experience Platform), featuring multiple content releases on what modern slavery consists of, spotting the red flags and most importantly, what to do when spotted.
