This course outlines the context for reporting, acknowledging and managing modern slavery in and around the workplace as it relates to the production of services and goods and the ethical responsibility of organisations. The course examines the UN mandate and the legislative framework within Australia. As identified through a range of public inquiries, modern slavery occurs within Australia. The realities of globalisation makes it inevitable that every country will also be exposed to the risk of modern slavery through the products it imports and the services it may utilise. It is necessary for modern policy-makers, businesses, and consumers to be aware of the risks and responsibilities. This course will examine strategies that may be adopted to mitigate these risks and act upon the responsibilities at an individual and organisational level.
