Office Locations and Webinar

Program Overview:

With a majority of the estimated 21 million victims of modern day slavery working in supply chains, slavery is a serious emerging legal issue for all companies. Laws are in place and being passed around the world in an effort to address the issue and responsible companies are creating policies and procedures in response. We will discuss the possible concerns facing the responsible company and whether the adoption and implementation of these policies creates liability for the company just trying to "do the right thing."
