Australian parliament passes Modern Slavery Bill
Following recent votes in the Senate and House of Representatives, Australia has a Modern Slavery Act, which will take effect on 1 January. This is great news for the many members of Parliament, government departments, NGOs and business that have collaborated and advocated for a number of years. Even more important is the hope that enacting this Bill will assist in eliminating slavery in supply chains and restore dignity to many who are currently enslaved. Congratulations to
and all who have had a part in bringing the bill to this stage.
Once enacted, Australian businesses and other organisations above a certain size (consolidated revenue of A$100 million) will be required to report annually on the risks of modern slavery in their operations and supply chains, and the action they have taken to assess and address those risks, and the effectiveness of their response. Smaller businesses will be able to report voluntarily.
