About this session
What is happening in the law and how is it affecting procurement practices – in a real-time way?
Join Scott Alden and his team for this 60-90 minute session every three months – which will be half webinar and half Q&A, and find out THREE key things:
• What new laws are coming into effect right now that might affect how procurement operate with suppliers
The new Forced Labour Bill – 23rd August introduction
The NSW Modern Slavery Amendments Bill – 14th October
Unfair Contract Terms Act changes – coming soon
• What recent CASE LAW decisions might impact directly and indirectly upon procurement practices, or have implications for how we work with suppliers?
• How are we implementing new solutions to recent laws that have come into effect, including regular updates on progress with:
Payment Times Reporting Act 2020 – new implementation guidance
Fed Govt Covid variations 2021-22 UPDATES
Modern Slavery Act 2018
Chain of Responsibility laws updates – nationally not just in NSW
