The Commonwealth Modern Slavery Act requires businesses and other organisations with a consolidated revenue over $100 million to report annually on the risk of slavery in their operations and supply chains by submitting a Modern Slavery Statement. The threshold for the incoming NSW Modern Slavery Act is $50 million.
Reporting entities are also required to speak to the steps they have taken to address and mitigate the modern slavery risks that have been identified, as well as the effectiveness of their response. These statements must be approved by the Board of Directors or equivalent and signed by a director.
This interactive webinar will cover the following transparency obligations and equip attendees with the information required to ensure appropriate compliance plans are implemented:
- How is modern slavery relevant to my organisation?
- What are my obligations under the Modern Slavery Acts?
- How does my organisation identify modern slavery risks?
- How can the organisation address and mitigate those modern slavery risks?
- How can the organisation measure impact?
- How can the organisation prepare a modern slavery report?
