The U.S. Ban on Forced Labor Imports: What You Need to Know [WEBINAR]

President Obama has slammed shut a legal backdoor allowing importers of forced labor goods to place their products on the U.S. market.

His government’s new law, the Trade Facilitation and Trade Enforcement Act 2015, has closed a loophole in the U.S. Tariff Act of 1930 that allowed forced labor imports in cases where consumer demand could not be met through alternative means. The bill was signed into law on February 24th and takes effect in early March.

On March 8th, Assent’s Human Trafficking Subject Matter Expert, Kate Dunbar, explored the new law and revealed what its implementation will mean for businesses in the webinar U.S. Ban on Forced Labor Imports: What You Need to Know.
