The human rights organisation, Hagar, is calling on the Australian government to do more to stop slave labour.

A parliamentary inquiry has been told the problem is a $32 billion industry and there's an estimated 21 million slaves worldwide.

Hagar wants all companies that provide services to the federal government to certify that their supply chains are slavery proof.
