Overview

Companies face increased legal and reputational risks associated with problems within their supply or value chains.  Governments are increasingly legislating in this space.  This legislation has focused primarily on enhanced disclosure of due diligence undertaken to identify, mitigate and remediate issues related to trafficking or modern slavery, and other human rights issues.  There is also growing pressure from investor and civil-society groups to make companies do more to demonstrate their efforts to protect workers (and to respect other environmental and broader human rights) within their supply or value chains.  These considerations, as well as the associated reputational risks, have caused companies to assess and mitigate these risks in their own organizations within a very fluid regulatory space.

Please join Michael G. Congiu and Donald C. Dowling, Jr. from Littler Mendelson P.C. as they:

  • Lay out the network of recently-enacted human rights reporting laws (and proposed laws) worldwide, and other regulatory developments like the “Zero Draft” Proposed Treaty and other common law developments related to parent-company liability
  • Provide an overview of the area, as well as practical compliance strategies
  • Offer benchmarking information as to what other multinationals are doing and a prognosis for where this trend will head in coming years

 

Who should attend:

Corporate, sustainability, employment and M&A in-house lawyers at multinationals

Corporate compliance and professionals  

Human rights and corporate ethics professionals
