ENGE2120 - Today's Compliance Frontier - Tackling Modern-Day Slavery in Supply Chains


May 20, 2021 1:00pm ‐ May 20, 2021 2:00pm

Description

According to the International Labor Organization, nearly 21 million people across the globe are victims of forced labor, a form of enslavement that encompasses labor, child, and sexual exploitation.  

Novel U.S. and international legal requirements, such as those found in the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act and Executive Order Strengthening Protections Against Trafficking in Persons in Federal Contracts, and the proposed federal Business Transparency in Trafficking and Slavery Act, the UK Modern Slavery Act, as well as coordinated consumer and advocacy group pressures, impose unique compliance and third-party due diligence obligations on the global business community.  

This session will not only cover those key regulations that today's compliant (and consumer-facing, ESG-focused) companies must follow, but will also provide real-world, practical tips on what companies can do to steer clear of enforcement, regulatory, consumer group, and advocacy organization pressures.
