Law Business Research has never been made aware of any activities involving either itself or its supply chain that would prompt concern in relation to slavery or human trafficking. In the event that any such incident were highlighted to Law Business Research, we would take swift and decisive action accordance with our legal and moral obligations.

Awareness and Reporting

We are committed to raising awareness of modern slavery and human trafficking amongst our employees through mandatory training that helps them to spot signs of modern slavery and human trafficking.

All employees have access to an external helpline where they can anonymously report any employment concerns, including those related to modern slavery and human trafficking. In addition to this contact information for the modern slavery helpline are clearly displayed throughout our offices and on our employee intranet.
