Special Guest speaker Alison Rahill anti-slavery campaigner: Ending modern slavery and ensuring labour rights at home and abroad
As this is an online event, registration is free but essential.
Special guest speaker Alison Rahill Alison Rahill, Executive Officer of the Catholic Archdiocese of Sydney’s Anti-Slavery Taskforce.
Alison has several decades’ experience as a labour rights specialist in addition to the past six years as a modern slavery specialist. Alison has undertaken in-depth community engagement projects in both the horticulture and construction sectors. She has also worked for the ACTU and other community organisations. Alison will speak about the Australian Modern Slavery Legislation, which requires large companies to assess, address and mitigate the risk of modern slavery in their operations and supply chains, in Australia and overseas. A statutory review of the legislation is underway with a report due to be tabled by the Labor government early 2023. This process links with AFTINET’s campaign for the government to implement its policy to include legally enforceable labour rights in trade agreements. This would place greater obligations on the Australian and other governments to improve labour rights.
