New South Wales comes closer to implementation of Modern Slavery Reporting

Requirements to affect U.S.-based and Other Multinationals

In March 2020, the Standing Committee on Social Issues of the Legislative Council of the New South Wales Parliament came up with recommendations regarding the implementation of the New South Wales Modern Slavery Act.

Among other duties, the national committee is responsible for reviewing the business impact of the New South Wales Modern Slavery Acts reporting requirements, and whether the adoption of the Commonwealth Modern Slavery Act makes all or part of the New South Wales Modern Slavery Act unnecessary or requires amendments to resolve inconsistencies or gaps. In this context, the committee conducted a review of the New South Wales Modern Slavery Act and the consultation drafts of the Modern Slavery Bill 2019 and the Modern Slavery Regulation 2019 prepared by the New South Wales Government.
