The business of slavery: information about criminal risks for in-house counsel
Mark Burton (2018), with a Foreword by Judge Michael Mclnerney, County Court of Victoria.
In a global economy, Australia is exposed to slavery through trade, migration and tourism. It is a crime to reduce a person to slavery, with intent or recklessly. Business and other organisations must develop systems and a culture to keep them free of slavery. Directors and managers can be liable for slavery in their business.
Foreword by Judge Michael Mclnerney,
Slavery did not end 200 years ago. Slavery persists in the modern world. In a global economy, Australia is exposed to modern slavery. In particular Australian businesses may be exposed to the ancient slave-making systems which persist in the Indo-Asia-Pacific. There have also been cases of slave-making in Australia. The directors and managers of businesses in this country need to ensure they are not exposed to such practices in Australia or overseas.
