Modern slavery

We can expertly guide you through the new anti-modern slavery legislation to help ensure compliance.


Recently enacted Commonwealth anti-modern slavery laws require many large businesses and other entities with an annual turnover of $100 million or more to prepare annual, publicly available Modern Slavery Statements that identify risks in their supply chains.

The actions taken to address those modern slavery risks must also be publicly outlined by businesses. 

These new laws are significant and high-profile changes for the Australian business landscape that reflect a growing awareness for the need to address modern slavery both domestically and internationally - and all business and government executives need to ensure they are up to speed.

Holding Redlich is an industry leader in this area and can expertly guide you through the legislation to ensure compliance.

We can help you understand modern slavery in the context of government procurement and supply chains, changes to tender and contract documentation, and offer training on the new modern slavery laws.
