How do Modern Slavery laws affect businesses?

Laws requiring businesses to disclose what they are doing to fight labour exploitation in their organisation and supply chain now exist or are soon to go into effect in the UK, the US, France, Australia, Brazil, Nepal, Switzerland and the Netherlands, among others.  Even businesses to which the laws do not directly apply are being effected, in the form of human rights risk audits, supplier codes of conduct, and increased pressure from NGOs, customers, investors and other stakeholder groups.
