Modern slavery is commonly found in factories, fisheries, construction sites and sex venues. While most people relate modern slavery to women and young girls forced into prostitution, this accounts for approximately 25% of the total cases. The remaining 75% falls under forced labour. Since most forced labour cases relate directly or indirectly to the private sector, there are a number of measures businesses can take to maintain a slave-free supply chain.
