Submission: Modern slavery in global supply chains

The HRLC seeks to ensure that Australian businesses are held accountable for the human rights impacts of their operations and that the Australian Government protects against corporate human rights abuses in accordance with its obligations under international and domestic law. Forced labour continues to affect millions of workers worldwide, including many in the supply chains of Australian companies. This Inquiry is a critical opportunity for the Australian Government to consider legislative action to help address an urgent global problem and show leadership on this issue within our region.
