A new California law imposes a variety of supply-chain disclosure obligations on large retailers and manufacturers who do business in California. As summarized in a recent article by my partner Jane Luxton:
[P]oised to go into effect January 1, 2012, [the new law] will impose disclosure obligations on all retailers and manufacturers that do business in California and have global gross receipts of $100 million per year. The California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 will require businesses to disclose on their Web sites their efforts to eliminate the use of slave labor and human trafficking from their supply chains.
