Implementing Effective Modern Slavery Grievance Mechanisms: A Guidance Note for Business

This publication provides practical advice to support businesses at all stages of designing and implementing effective business-led grievance mechanisms to hear and address complaints about modern slavery in their operations and supply chains. The guide may be particularly useful for businesses reporting either voluntarily or compulsorily under Australia’s Modern Slavery Act 2018 (Cth), and businesses implementing key voluntary standards. It focuses on grievance mechanisms that identify and remediate modern slavery-related complaints and is written for practitioners working in risk, compliance, procurement, sustainability and human rights within Australian and international businesses.
