Modern Slavery Legislation in Australia is set to be overhauled when State and Federal Modern Slavery Acts come into effect. Scott Alden, Holding Redlich, will take us through the implications to help end modern slavery-like practices in organizations and their supply chains, i.e. proposed mandatory measures and penalties of up to $1.1m.
