The Evolving Workplace: Modern Slavery01 March 2021
It has been nearly a year since we launched “The Evolving Workplace” podcast series—delving into trends and highlighting anticipated developments across employment and safety issues.
We’re refreshing the series this year by introducing new formats, including our “Talk 5 in 5” episodes. Intentionally brief, these podcasts continue to cover interesting workplace law issues, while honing in on the five key points you need to know about a particular workplace topic in five minutes.
In this episode we explain what constitutes Modern Slavery, its relevance and developments in Australia, including the Modern Slavery Act 2018 (Cth), requirements and deadlines to lodge statements, supply chain risk management processes, and principles that overlap with other workplace legislation.
For a transcript of this podcast, please contact us. If there are other topics you’d like us to explore in The Evolving Workplace series, please contact Catherine Wilkinson, who leads our national Workplace Team.
We hope you enjoy the podcast!
