Australia: Groups urge Govt. to respond to review recommendations & strengthen modern slavery law with new due diligence requirement

"Strengthening Australia’s modern slavery laws and Anti-Slavery Commissioner", 13 March 2024


The purpose of this letter is to reiterate our strong support for further reforms to strengthen the Act. We urge the Government to respond to the Review recommendations as soon as possible, noting eight months have passed since the Review was published. In particular, we believe the introduction of a due diligence obligation on companies, in addition to penalties for non-compliance, will be critical to ensuring that the Act meets its objective of effectively tackling modern slavery. We also urge the Government to strengthen the ASC Bill to increase the powers, resourcing and independence of the Anti-Slavery Commissioner so that the Office can undertake its role effectively.
