The Commissioner has made a submission to the review of the Modern Slavery Act 2018 (Cth) being conducted by Professor John McMillan AO. Entitled “Reporting for Action” (PDF, 409.0 KB) (PDF, 409.0 KB), the submission explores how strengthened administrative supervision could help ensure that company reporting drives action reducing modern slavery risks to people.
The Anti-slavery Commissioner is pleased to announce a partnership with the James Martin Institute for Public Policy to support preparation of a strategic plan to combat modern slavery in NSW from 2023 to 2026. 
To inform the plan, we will be consulting, over the next few months, with a wide array of stakeholders, from victims and survivors of modern slavery, to government agencies, business, civil society, unions and researchers.
This consultation process will explore the questions: What should anti-slavery action in NSW look like by the end of 2025? And how do we get there?
