This interim report seeks to draw attention primarily to the issue of unlawful migrant work in Australia; to debunk some key myths around this population; and to raise a challenge to policy makers and legislators to look towards a future that will enable impact labour reform to be achieved – reform that will reduce the levels of exploitation and modern slavery occurring within Australia. The report also raises the question: can Australia commit to countering modern slavery and migrant labour exploitation if it continues to sideline unlawful migrant labour experiences based on workers’ migration status?
