Please note this event is on Wednesday 20 June not Tuesday 19 June as originally advertised

In 2018 the Commonwealth Parliament will pass a Modern Slavery Act requiring businesses with a certain turnover (presently anticipated as being $100m per annum) to audit and annually report to the Australian government on their supply chains, ensuring that there are no aspects of slavery or labour exploitation practices within. The construction industry is a key area of concern because of its sometimes lengthy and intricate supply chains, particularly in relation to building materials. The audit and compliance processes are quite extensive and require very specialised skill sets in a human rights and organisational auditing framework.

We invite you to join us for an evening seminar to learn more about this very significant change in law and business practices and the implications for your business.
