A practical action plan for Commonwealth Modern Slavery Act compliance

In this Practical Action Plan for Commonwealth Modern Slavery Act compliance, our regulatory change specialists unpack the Modern Slavery Act which will require large entities in Australia to report annually on the risk of modern slavery in their organisation and supply chain and to take certain steps to assess risk.

The Commonwealth Modern Slavery Act 2018 (Modern Slavery Act) was passed late last year and establishes a framework for large organisations to report on human rights issues which constitute ‘modern slavery’ on an annual basis.

This Practical Action Plan has been developed to assist legal and business stakeholders to develop a clear roadmap for Modern Slavery Act compliance.
