As at 2018, the Walk Free Foundation’s Global Slavery Index estimated that in excess of 40 million people globally are subject to some form of modern slavery in 2016*, with 71% of them being female. In Australia, on any given day in 2016 there were
15,000 people enslaved**.
Modern slavery practices include servitude, human trafficking, forced labour, debt bondage, slavery like practices, child labour, and forced marriage.
The Australian government enacted the Commonwealth Modern Slavery Act in 2018 which entered into force on 1 January 2019. The Act requires all companies with a net annual consolidated revenue over a specified amount to report annually through the production of a modern slavery statement on those risks of modern slavery in their operations and supply chains, and the actions taken to address those risks. Accepted Statements are published on the government’s Modern Slavery register which may be accessed by the public, free of charge, on the internet and are located here.
