LIV comments on National Action Plan to Combat Modern Slavery

LIV comments on National Action Plan to Combat Modern Slavery

By Workplace Relations Section

Human Rights 


The Law Institute of Victoria has provided feedback to the Law Council of Australia on the Department of Home Affairs National Action Plan to Combat Modern Slavery 2020-2024.

The National Action Plan can be found here.

The submission considers the key areas of focus for the next five years, reflects on previous LIV submissions concerning exploitation of workers, and makes recommendations in relation to the National Action Plan for 2020-2024 and the Modern Slavery Act 2018 (Cth).

While the LIV generally commends the new National Action Plan, including its explicit goal to “progress effective prosecutions to secure convictions against offenders", it has expressed concerns about some of the goals and questions why reference to the Commonwealth Criminal Code Act 1995 has been removed from the new National Action Plan, as this implies a shift away from considering further criminal legislative reform..

Please read the submission here.
