The Modern Slavery Flywheel

To effectively address Modern Slavery risks, organisations have to adopt a flywheel approach to continually improve and minimise operational disruption.

An effective due diligence process consists of six stages:
  • Embed responsible business conduct into polities and management systems;
  • Identify and assess adverse impacts in operations, supply chains and business relationships;
  • Cease, prevent or mitigate adverse impacts;
  • Track implementation and results;
  • Communicate how impacts are addressed;
  • Provide for or cooperate in remediation when appropriate.

Update: Recommendations to update the Modern Slavery Act 2018

On 25 May 2023, the Australian Government tabled a report on the statutory review of Australia’s Modern Slavery Act, which reviewed the first 3 years of the Act’s operation. The review was conducted and was led by Professor John McMillan, AO.

The review made 30 recommendations for government consideration to strengthen the Act. Key recommendations made in the review include:
  • introducing penalties for non-compliance with statutory reporting requirements
  • lowering the reporting threshold from $100 million to $50 million
  • requiring entities to report on modern slavery incidents or risks
  • amending the Act to require entities have a due diligence system in place
  • strengthening the administration of the Act through proposed legislative amendments and expanded administrative guidance
  • proposing functions for the federal Anti-Slavery Commissioner in relation to the Act.

Corporate human rights due diligence is slowly becoming expected conduct for all types of businesses, regardless of the size of sectors.
