As new and proposed legislation across a number of jurisdictions focused on human rights and forced labor comes at us at a dizzying pace, companies are increasingly looking to their legal and compliance teams to prepare for this new wave of legal requirements and related enforcement activity. Companies that are not currently feeling the impact of this new wave of legislation will feel it soon, either because they are directly covered by relevant legislation, or because they are a part of the value or supply chain of other companies that are covered. Join us for a virtual roundtable discussion to discuss how to be prepared for what lies ahead as it relates to human rights. This will be an opportunity to brainstorm and benchmark with your legal and compliance peers on how they are tackling the issues of human rights and forced labor in their own operations, and in their supply chains.
Topics to be discussed include the following:
Governance, risk assessment, and mitigation plans
Policies, procedures, and training
Human rights supply chain due diligence, audits, and other risk mitigation strategies
Preparing for counterparty requests for human rights certifications and audits
