The California Transparency in Supply Chains Act, which became effective earlier this year, imposes website disclosure requirements upon all retail sellers and manufacturers doing business in California that have $100 million or more in annual worldwide gross receipts.  Companies subject to this act are required to disclose their efforts to eradicate slavery and human trafficking from direct supply chains.  In particular, these companies must disclose whether they engage in the following activities: (i) verification of product supply chains to evaluate and address risks of human trafficking and slavery; (ii) audits of suppliers to evaluate supplier compliance with company standards prohibiting human trafficking and slavery in supply chains; (iii) in the case of direct suppliers, certification that materials incorporated into the product comply with the laws regarding human trafficking and slavery of the country or countries in which they are doing business; (iv) maintenance of internal accountability standards and procedures for employees or contractors failing to meet company standards prohibiting slavery and human trafficking; and (v) provision of training on human trafficking and slavery to employees with direct responsibility for supply chain management.
