the human rights center took out the Paper promises? Assessing the Early Effects of Australia’s Modern Slavery Act report, which found that Australian businesses are not identifying forced labor risks in their supply chains or taking steps to address them.
The report came to this conclusion by looking at 102 statements submitted to the government modern slavery register. The reports came from 4 business sectors with known modern slavery risks, including clothing from China, rubber gloves from Malaysia, seafood from Thailand and fresh produce from Australia.
The report found that of the 102 companies examined,
• 77% had not complied with the basic reporting requirements imposed by the law,
• 52% had not identified obvious modern slavery risks in their operations or supply chains, and
• Only 27% of companies appeared to be taking some form of effective action to address modern slavery risks.
