Modern slavery is a term used to encompass human trafficking, slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labour, bonded labour and some forms of child labour. Victims are coerced, deceived, threatened or abused into providing work or services without any real possibility to refuse or remove themselves from their situation.
In addition to the above, human trafficking can also include an act of transportation, transfer, harbouring or receipt of persons (cross border or internal). Modern slavery is a crime and a grave violation of fundamental human rights.
Babyblack Limited supports the introduction of the UK Modern Slavery Act and its efforts to fight slavery and human trafficking in global supply chains.
Slavery and human trafficking are exploitations of a person’s freedoms and rights and these practices should be eradicated.
As a responsible business, Babyblack ensures that its people and suppliers do not in any way support these activities. Babyblack has issued this statement pursuant to Section 54, of the UK Modern Slavery Act 2015.
