It’s not every day that we hear of new legislation so we’re super excited to share this alert with you.
The Modern Slavery Act, which took effect on January 1st, now requires companies of a certain size operating in Australia to publicly state the steps they are taking to keep their supply chains free from the worst forms of modern-day slavery. Although the law is primarily aimed at large companies, small businesses could get caught in these changes to the extent that they are part of the supply chain of organisations that are covered by this act.
Host Joanna Oakey and Aspect Legal’s Fiona Yiend will take you on a 15-minute overview of everything you need to know about this new legislation. And of course, this includes a run-through of some simple actionable steps that you can implement in your business to help keep you on safer ground under this regime.
