The term modern slavery describes situations where coercion, threats or deception are used to exploit victims and undermine their freedom. Many Australian businesses may be unaware of the risk that they have slavery in their business or supply chains. The Global Slavery Index 2018 estimates 15,000 people are living in conditions of modern slavery in Australia.
To assist companies with training employees on modern slavery risks, Allara Global has developed a new online course Modern Slavery Act Australia - Awareness Training. This is a general training course for all employees on how to understand, identify and report modern slavery in and around the workplace.
This course has been developed in partnership with global law firm Norton Rose Fulbright Australia.
The online course is fully responsive, providing an optimal viewing experience across a wide range of devices from mobile phones to desktop computer monitors.
