The study focuses on the first disclosure law addressing human trafficking and slavery within the global marketplace – the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 (CA-TISCA). CA-TISCA requires human trafficking and slavery-pertinent disclosure statements from large corporate earners operating in the state.

The degree of corporate disclosure compliance with CA-TISCA was systematically evaluated by individually assessing qualifying companies’ statements as disclosed against eight compliance criteria based on the law’s core requirements, resulting in a compliance score, and seven indicators regarding affirmative conduct, yielding an affirmative score. The study reveals that, overall, compliance performance greatly varies between companies. The average disclosure compliance score was 60%. Forty-one (41%) percent of companies were found to have a corporate disclosure score on or above the 70% mark.
