In an article posted to this site on September 27th 2019 the nature of both the Article 4 European Convention of Human Rights 1950 and the Modern Day Slavery Act 2015 were explained.

Sharan Rupra of Kangs Solicitors furthers that article by reference to forms of modern slavery that appear to be developing in the UK.

Forms Of Modern Slavery | Kangs Immigration Offences Team

  • Forced labour – work or services which people are forced to do against their will under threat of some form of punishment
  • Debt bondage – occurs when people borrow money which they are subsequently unable to repay and are instead required to work by way of repayment of the debt in circumstances where they are exploited in respect of the conditions and terms of such forced employment.
  • Human trafficking/servitude – which involves transporting, recruiting or harbouring people for the purpose of exploitation and which involves the use of violence, threats or coercion.
  • Slavery/child slavery – forced labour or servitude with an additional element of claimed ownership i.e. a slave is a person over whom any or all powers attaching to ownership are attached.
  • Forced and early marriage when someone is married against their will and cannot leave the marriage.
