In 2014, governments, employers and workers delegates at the ILO/International Labour Conference (ILC) adopted a Protocol and Recommendation which supplement the Forced Labour Convention, 1930 (No. 29) , and include measures regarding prevention, protection and remedy to eliminate all forms of forced labour.
