Supply Chain Risk Mitigation: Forced Labor and Human Rights Violations, and Social Compliance System Requirements
A live 90-minute CLE video webinar with interactive Q&A
This CLE webinar will provide counsel with guidance on reviewing supply chains for compliance and assessing the risks related to violations of human rights regulations and potential forced labor. The panel will provide a framework for assessing the liability throughout a company's supply chain and a structure for compliance within the international community that has increasingly implemented environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) legislation to hold companies accountable for noncompliance with human rights violations.
- Mitigating risk in the supply chain
- Conduct a comprehensive risk assessment
- Extend compliance efforts to the supply chain
- Synergies between compliance, legal, and corporate social responsibility
- The U.S.
- The European Union and United Kingdom
The panel will review these and other relevant topics:
- What must a corporate board consider when addressing a potential supply chain risk of forced labor?
- What are the best ways to mitigate the risk of forced labor violations in the supply chain?
- How can a corporate board adopt appropriate governance that incorporates human rights into ESG?
- What legal risks exist in the U.S. and other countries for violations of current and proposed anti-slavery legislation?
