The NSW Modern Slavery Amendments 2022-23

This session took place 7th March 2023.

On 19 November 2021, the NSW Parliament finally voted in favour of long awaited amendments to the Modern Slavery Act 2018 (NSW) which had not yet commenced at that time.  On 1 January 2022, the Modern Slavery Amendment Act 2021 (NSW) came into force and introduced a number of amendments to the Modern Slavery Act 2018 (NSW).  This legislation is separate to the commonwealth Modern Slavery Act 2018 (Cth) and impacts the Modern Slavery movement more generally.

Luke Geary will explain why there is a NSW Act and a Commonwealth Act and how the two work together. He will also explain the work of the NSW Anti-Slavery Commissioner and how that’s relevant to the interplay between these pieces of legislation. Luke will detail the additional requirements of the NSW legislation, and crucially - what it all means for Australian businesses and procurement managers within NSW.
