In this one-hour webinar, Arthur Bodek, Partner of Grunfeld, Desiderio, Lebowitz, Silverman & Klestadt LLP. (GDLSK) will explore recent U.S. legislation and administrative actions (e.g., withhold release orders, importer questionnaires, detentions, etc.) regarding forced labor within supply chains, as well as due diligence steps that importers should be focused on to stay ahead of this issue. The U.S. Government has implemented game-changing measures that require importers of cotton products to provide assurance that these products are free of forced labor, and the onus is on the importer to justify such declarations.
This session will focus on recent U.S. measures, but will also provide a brief comparison to recently announced Canadian measures.
