Readers Say
Useful on a daily basis
Useful on a daily basis

It's well balanced information that is useful on a daily basis. I'm very satisfied with the Executive Edition. I start each day with SES and a big cup of coffee!

It pertains to my business
It pertains to my business

I’m an avid reader of Shop-Eat-Surf because it’s really the only online newsletter that I have found that is not only industry related, but also because it’s not so “guy-centric.” I find that a lot of the information I read on the site pertains to my business (as a swimwear designer) and keeps me up to date on what other companies and other women in the industry in general are doing which is not only inspiring but also helps me gauge the future direction of my business as well.

I feel privileged to read the Executive Edition because I know I am getting insider industry information before it hits the mainstream media channels. And it’s always good to know what my friends are up to in the industry.

CFA hosts webinar Thursday on compliance with new California law barring slavery and human trafficking

By Press Releases
December 07, 2011 12:52 PM

 

PRESS RELEASE:

 

NEW WEBINAR INFORMATION - AN ISSUE OF HIGH IMPORTANCE!

 

If you are not in compliance with the new California law banning slavery and human trafficking, S657 that takes effect on Jan. 1, you could get sued by the California Attorney General and third parties.

 

Requirements of the law:

a) Put information on the home page of your website. The information on the home page must address how your company is combating human trafficking.

 

You may put a link on your homepage to a different section of your website where those details are located, but the initial link must be on your homepage. Companies that do not have websites must respond to requests for information within thirty (30) days of receipt of any request.

 

b) Have a compliance program to meet the specific requirements. Identify what your company is doing within its supply chain to "evaluate and address risks of human trafficking and slavery."

 

Your suppliers must be asked to certify that they are compliant with company standards to combat human trafficking and slavery. Both domestic AND international suppliers must "certify" that they comply with their local laws.

 

You must also audit your suppliers and provide training to your own staff about mitigating the risks of slavery and human trafficking in your supply chains.

 

Learn more about the new law and your compliance requirements at our webinar on Thursday Dec. 8.
