Modern Slavery

Western Sydney University respects the dignity, wellbeing, and human rights of its employees, workers in its supply chains, and the communities in which the University operates or from which it sources products and services.

As such, the University is extremely supportive of the Modern Slavery Act 2018 (Cth), which aims to protect human rights by requiring entities, such as the University, to identify and address any modern slavery risks in its business and supply chains. The University will publish its actions and areas of focus in regards to combatting modern slavery in a Modern Slavery Statement in 2021, which will be an annual activity.

As it prepares for its 2021 Statement, the University will share more information about its efforts to combat modern slavery and how we can all play a part.

If University staff receive communication and/or activities to undertake from other entities who consider the University as a supplier for the purposes of the Modern Slavery Act 2018 (Cth), please contact the Compliance Program Unit and/or the Office of Strategy, Business Development and Procurement
