Perth & Kinross Local Area Commander’s Bulletin   Wednesday 4th May 2022

Labour Exploitation

Labour exploitation is a form of modern slavery and it’s happening today all over Scotland.

The motivation for offenders is financial gain, regardless of the human cost to victims.

Any business can be affected, although those with high ongoing or seasonal labour needs will always be at higher risk. It’s the responsibility of owners, managers and employees to make sure their business does not become involved in the exploitation of people, either intentionally or through poor practice.

Our End Labour Exploitation microsite explains everything you need to know about labour exploitation, including the ways people are exploited, recognising the signs, how to ensure your business is not part of the problem and ways to get help if you are a victim.

We can all help to #EndLabourExploitation by staying alert and knowing what to look out for.

Labour exploitation is criminal. Report it, like you would any other crime.

Help us to ‘break the chain’ of labour exploitation by staying vigilant and reporting your suspicions by calling 101 (or 999 in an emergency).

You can also call the Modern Slavery Helpline on 0800 0121 700.
