Businesses should map their supply chains, review supply chain practices and hold their suppliers accountable to control anti-trafficking risks in their operations.
These recommendations are in a briefing aimed at tackling modern-day slavery by not-for-profit organization Sedex Global. It includes information from Verité and Sedex on the causes of modern-day slavery, how workers are affected, and indicators of forced labour in factories and on farms.
The Modern Day Slavery Briefing highlights the specific vulnerabilities of migrant workers, the role of labor brokers, and the mechanisms that can result in modern-day slavery, with guidance on what businesses can do to reform recruitment practices to protect their workers.
