Child Labor, Forced Labor and Human Trafficking in Supply Chains: Taking a Proactive Approach
- Oct 23, 2013 12:00 PM ET
With 215 million children in child labor globally, and 21 million people in forced labor, these abusive practices are likely hidden in the supply chains of even the most responsible companies. In this webinar, officials from the U.S. Department of Labor will walk participants through the Department's free, step-by-step online resource, "Reducing Child Labor and Forced Labor: A Toolkit for Responsible Businesses" (www.dol.gov/childlaborbusinesstoolkit). The Toolkit provides guidance, as well as specific company examples, on topics ranging from due-diligence to identify risks of child and forced labor to remediation of these abuses where they are found. First published in 2012, the Toolkit will be updated periodically to reflect the latest in good corporate practice.
