Yancoal’s Commitment to Respecting Human Rights

Slavery, servitude, forced labour, forced marriage, human trafficking, the worst forms of child labour[1], debt bondage, and deceptive recruiting for labour or services are types of serious exploitation defined as modern slavery (Modern Slavery) under the Modern Slavery Act 2018 (Cth) (the Act).  It describes situations where coercion, threats or deception are used to exploit victims and undermine their freedom.

Modern Slavery in all forms is strictly prohibited by Yancoal Australia Ltd (the Company).
