If you’re a labour hire or workforce services provider, you’ll likely be receiving requests for information about what steps you’ve taken to combat risks of modern slavery in your supply chains or operations.
You might even be large enough to have to prepare your own modern slavery statements, and you could be requesting similar information from your suppliers.
That’s because Australian entities that have a consolidated revenue of $100 million or more must lodge statements under the Modern Slavery Act 2018 (Cth),
For most of them, the extended lodgment date is 31 March 2021. But a few entities will have different reporting dates – some as soon as 31 December 2020. You can check it out here.
So, over the coming weeks, we’ll be posting some short updates and commentary in the RCSA-hosted Labour Hire Licensing & Regulation LinkedIn Group. Be sure to look in on us regularly. And if you have questions, don’t hesitate to ask.
