Summary

Two years from the Commonwealth Act’s commencement, over 2,500 modern slavery statements have been lodged on the Government’s modern slavery register, covering more than 6,000 reporting entities.

Key commentators consider that many reporting entities fail to identify the most significant human rights risks in their supply chains or demonstrate effective actions to address these risks.
