Modern slavery

Preventing Modern Slavery

One of our key focuses is the threat of modern slavery, which is a criminal offence that affects millions of people worldwide and is a significant issue in the UK, particularly in the food industry.

Modern slavery is the broad term used to encompass the offences of slavery, forced or compulsory labour and human trafficking. Morrisons is committed to preventing modern slavery in all our activities and ensuring, as far as we are able, that our businesses and supply chains are free from slavery and human trafficking.

Key Points

  • To ensure that modern slavery of any type does not take place in our business we:
  • Provide appropriate training to colleagues in identifying and tackling hidden labour exploitation
  • Prohibit the use of any individual or organisation to source and supply workers without confirming that workers are not being charged any fees in relation to that process
  • Ensure that all colleagues responsible for recruitment are trained to be aware of the issues around third party labour exploitation and signs to look for
  • Adopt a proactive and collaborative approach to reporting suspicions of hidden worker exploitation to the Gangmasters and Labour Abuse Authority (GLAA) and police
  • Provide information on tackling issues to all colleagues through induction, workplace posters, training, outreach visits and regular updates
  • Encourage all colleagues and agency workers to report cases of hidden exploitation, provide the means to do so and investigate and act on reports appropriately
  • Require our approved labour providers to adopt policies and procedures consistent with the above.
