Modern slavery is an umbrella term for any form of slavery, servitude or forced labour affecting all persons, children, women and men. To help tackle this crime, the Australian government introduced the Modern Slavery Act 2018 which came into force on 1st January 2019.

The Modern Slavery At 2018

The newly introduced legislation requires entities in Australia to detail the risks of modern slavery in their operations and supply chains, and the actions taken to address those risks in a Modern Slavery Statement which has to be published and updated annually.

The Act applies to you if:

  • Your business is based in Australia or any part of your operations are in Australia 
  • You have an annual turnover of more than AUD $100 million.

What will you have to do:

  • You will have to provide an annual Modern Slavery Statement outlining how you have identified the risks of modern slavery in your business and supply chains and the actions you have taken to reduce those risks.
  • Your Statement will be held on the public ‘Modern Slavery Statements Register’ accessible online.
