Retailer Protocol for Handling Reported Cases of Modern Slavery in the UK Supply Chain. November 2018. Developed in partnership by the British Retail Consortium (BRC), the Gangmasters and Labour Abuse Authority (GLAA) and Stronger Together, as well as through consultation with supply chain partners, the Retailer Protocol for Handling Reported Cases of Modern Slavery in the UK supply chain, is an advisory document to help both retailers and suppliers to apply good practice when responding to cases of hidden forced labour. The protocol gives suppliers confidence that their retailer customers will provide the appropriate support if a case of modern slavery is reported. The document establishes principles of good practice and a procedural protocol for retailers in responding to reported cases of forced labour, human trafficking, debt bondage, and other forms of modern slavery.
