Forced Labour

The ILO's Special Action Programme to Combat Forced Labour, in close collaboration with ACT-EMP and IOE, has published a new handbook for employers and business on combating forced labour.

Combating Forced Labour: A Handbook for Employers and Business seeks to meet the needs of employers' organisations and individual companies worldwide for guidance on addressing these issues and provides practical tools and material for business actors of all kinds, including senior managers, human resource personnel, and social compliance and procurement staff. In a series of seven booklets, the handbook addresses preventive and remedial action, reviews good practices by companies and across industries, and includes guiding principles, tips for taking action and guidance on assessing compliance. Employers' organisations and business have a central role to play in addressing all forms of forced and compulsory labour. Employers' organisations, in particular, are strategically well-placed to provide institutional engagement and sustainability for programmes that address this abuse.

If you have any questions or need further clarification on the contents of the handbook, please contact ACT/EMP or the IOE.
