Modern Slavery Bill - Overseas Domestic Workers

ILPA Briefing for the Modern Slavery Bill can be found alongside the Kalayaan briefing here. The ILPA briefing covers:

Lords’ Amendment 45: Legal Aid for Victims of Slavery, Servitude and Forced labour
Lords’ Amendments 46 to 57 Child Trafficking Advocates in particular Lords amendment 47, to which ILPA is opposed
Lords’ Amendment 72: Overseas domestic workers and the Home Secretary’s motion to disagree and proposed amendments in lieu

A debate on Lord Hylton’s amendment restoring to domestic workers the right to change employers is taking place tomorrow. There is still time (just) to let your MP know your views before the debate.
