This handbook seeks to meet the needs of employers’ organisations and individual companies worldwide for guidance on addressing forced labour and human trafficking. It provides practical tools and material for business actors of all kinds, identifying what is and is not forced labour, why it is a significant concern for business, and the actions that can be taken to address it.

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; and business involvement is a key to the success of the ILO’s campaign to eradicate forced labour by 2015.

This handbook was prepared in close co-operation with the International Organisation of Employers in the context of an expert group initiative on supply chain management of the UN Global Initiative to Fight Human Trafficking (UN.GIFT).

In a series of seven booklets, the handbook provides guidance on preventive and remedial action, reviews good practice in combating forced labour, and presents information relevant to senior business managers, human resource personnel, sourcing and social compliance staff, social auditors and others. The handbook is comprised of the following:
