The U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of International Labor Affairs has released a toolkit to assist companies with Human Trafficking issues
The U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of International Labor Affairs (“ILAB”) has released a toolkit to assist companies in identifying and rooting out forced and child labor in their operations and supply chains. The toolkit sets forth basic elements of an anti-trafficking compliance plan, including conducting risk assessments, developing and implementing a code of conduct, training employees, engaging stakeholders, monitoring compliance and conducting independent audits and reviews.
Federal and state authorities have implemented numerous laws to combat human trafficking, which means that increasingly so, companies must enact and evaluate their current policies to comply with these laws as well as to ensure that their procedures reflect well on a company’s corporate reputation. More than ever, companies are being required to detail efforts to eradicate slavery and human trafficking from their direct supply chains in order to comply with both state and federal regulations.
