Episode 4: The impact of modern slavery legislation on global organisations


In this episode we discuss the key features of modern slavery legislation across the UK, AsiaPac and Australia. We specifically cover the requirements that organisations must meet across these regions, and what the key differences are.

We look at the repercussions companies might face if they are in breach of regulation. This includes everything from reputational damage, to potential financial penalties, and the growing class action risk if your supply chain is in breach.

Most importantly, we cover what your organisation can and should do to manage these risks.

This episode is hosted by DLA Piper partner Sammy Fang, Head of Compliance and Investigations for Greater China. Sammy speaks to Natalie Caton, Head of Compliance and Investigations for Australia, and Patrick Rappo, Global Co-Chair of our Compliance & Investigations group, based in our London office. This podcast is delivered to you from our Global Compliance and Investigations group.
