On 29 November 2018, in a major milestone for Australia, the Australian Modern Slavery Act passed all stages of the Australian Parliament, and is now waiting Royal Assent. The legislation is likely to be in force in early 2019.

Large Australian entities (including companies, partnerships, trusts, universities and charities), those entities carrying on business in Australia (irrespective of where they are incorporated), and Commonwealth corporations and companies, with annual consolidated revenue exceeding $100 million are now required to disclose how their operations and supply chain may contribute to modern slavery and explain what they are doing to address those risks.
