The LIV has provided feedback to the Law Council of Australia (LCA) on the Modern Slavery Bill 2018. 

Although the LIV supports the Bill, the LIV submitted that: 

  • The revenue threshold be reduced from $100 million to $25 million;
  • A list of entities required to report be publicly available, noting those enti­ties that have and have not complied with reporting requirements;
  • An Independent Anti-Slavery Commissioner be appointed; and
  • Penalties for non-complying entities be introduced.
