Victims of trafficking need better access to justice
Access to Compensation for Victims of Human Trafficking, a working paper by Focus on Labour Exploitation (FLEX), was launched on 11 July. The Law Centre was pleased to contribute to this important document.
Research carried out for this paper found that, although the Modern Slavery Act has now been in place for a while, little has changed for victims seeking justice. They still face significant legal and practical barriers to getting compensation for the abuses committed against them.
FLEX is calling for a comprehensive review of access to compensation that will address the complex nature of trafficking and other forms of modern slavery.
