This report represents the first ever attempt to measure these human rights abuses and violations on a large scale. It is divided into two parts: 1. Understanding child labour, forced labour and human trafficking in global supply chains, and 2. Responding to child labour, forced labour and human trafficking in global supply chains
This course supports SMEs to meaningfully show the important and complementary ways they are acting responsibly and contributing to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The OECD guidance provides practical support to businesses on the implementation of the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises by providing plain-language explanations of its due diligence recommendations and associated provisions. Implementing these recommendations can help enterprises avoid and address adverse impacts related to workers, human rights, the environment, bribery, consumers and corporate governance that may be associated with their operations, supply chains and other business relationships. The Guidance includes additional explanations, tips and illustrative examples of due diligence.

A guide and toolkit for businesses and investors on understanding modern slavery, relevant standards, risk assessment, monitoring, mitigation, remediation, and more.
The guide presents an introduction to the ILO Indicators of Forced Labour. These indicators are intended to help front-line criminal law enforcement officials, labour inspectors, trade union officers, NGO workers and others to identify persons who are possibly trapped in a forced labour situation, and who may require urgent assistance. The indicators represent the most common signs that point to the possible existence of a forced labour case.
Even though labour migration has never featured more prominently within ASEAN than it does today, there remains a dearth of reliable data that can be applied for the development of evidence-based policy and programming. Due to the temporary and irregular nature of much of the migration occurring within the region, the realities faced by migrant workers are often hidden from view. This study helps to fill the knowledge gap on the socio-economic outcomes of migration into low-skilled work within ASEAN.
This mobile app allows business managers and auditors to create interactive checklists that help ensure a forced labour-free operation. There are 38 checkpoints in total – each one provides best-practice recommendations for taking action. The app is available in Android and iOS versions. PDF files of the check points are also available.
