"Modern Slavery Bill: Submission to the Joint Committee on Human Rights", 27 Aug 2014

CORE welcomes the Bill and the opportunity to submit evidence to the Joint Committee...To date, voluntary mechanisms have proved ineffective in tackling slavery and forced labour in the supply chain. The Bill therefore presents an important opportunity for a more effective approach by introducing a legislative measure to improve corporate transparency and accountability with regard to the steps companies take to minimise the risk of the most serious labour rights violations being present in their supply chain. [Includes recommendations for changes to the Bill which would enhance human rights protections.]
