Modern Slavery Act Reporting (UK and Australia)
Section 54 of the UK Modern Slavery Act and the Australian Modern Slavery Act 2017 require organisations to publish an annual modern slavery statement.
The UK Home Office and the Australian Border Force earlier this year, published guidance for organisations on how to address and report on modern slavery risks during the coronavirus pandemic, extending the reporting submission dates.
What does this checklist feature?
This checklist features a set of questions that collate the key aspects highlighted in these guidance notes. It provides companies with the key issues they should be considering when determining their response as well as guidance and on how to reduce the risk of vulnerable workers being exposed to modern slavery as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Ardea also provides guides, resources and bespoke services, such as policy reviews and gap analyses, to help businesses benchmark their current practices and implement improvements for businesses based in Australia, multi-nationals with a presence in the country, and those who have supply chain impacts there.
