University Policy and Annual Statement
Modern Slavery is a term used to encapsulate offences defined in the Modern Slavery Act 2015 covering slavery, servitude, forced or compulsory labour and human trafficking. Business organisations (universities are included within this definition) have a responsibility to ensure that workers are not being exploited, that they are safe and that relevant employment, health and safety and human rights laws and international standards are adhered to, including freedom of movement and communications. The University of Warwick fully accepts these responsibilities and is committed to meeting its obligations under the Modern Slavery Act.
