Webinar: Corporate liabilities for modern-day slavery in supply and service chains: A transnational framework

Recent regulations have turned the spotlight on human rights issues as a major financial and reputational risk for companies and their supply chains.

On April 25, 2016, iPoint-systems released a commissioned framework of human trafficking and slavery laws. Directed at the private sector, the framework focuses on seven business-relevant laws in the USA, EU, and UK. Showing how these laws relate to each other thematically may not only assist companies in their design of relevant programs, but furthermore informs the design and evaluation of an integrated, liability-based reporting and compliance solution.

Learn more about the framework and its implications for your business. The webinar concludes with a Q&A session which offers you the unique opportunity to pose your framework-related questions to Dr. Bayer.
