Employer Bulletin | 7 August

Issue date

The Government is working alongside business to deliver on its commitment to address modern slavery by introducing new legislation that mandates transparency. Organisations and businesses with over $20 million in revenue will be required to disclose their operations and supply chains through a public register. Modern slavery has increased globally since the pandemic, with an estimated 50 million people affected daily. These changes aim to empower conscious consumers with more information about the products they use. Additionally, the legislation aligns with Free Trade Agreements with the United Kingdom and the EU, demonstrating a commitment to prevent modern slavery in supply chains and maintain strong trading relationships.
