Code of Conduct Applied to Vietnamese enterprises sending workers for overseas employment

This Code of Conduct, prepared by the Vietnam Association of Manpower supply, presents the fundamental principles which Vietnamese enterprises recruiting workers for overseas employment should comply with. It is based on Vietnam legislation, ILO Conventions and Recommendations and other relevant international instruments and on the actual context of Vietnam.

Increasing the numbers and quality of overseas employment for workers is a matter of great interest of the state, society and people. In the past years, Vietnamese enterprises recruiting workers for overseas employment have played an important role for these achievements.

For ensuring sustainable development, building prestige and trademark of enterprises and helping them to gain initiative in compliance with the national law, international labour standards, VAMAS (Vietnam Association of Manpower supply), with the cooperation of and technical support from MOLISA (Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social affairs) and ILO, has formulated and promulgated a Code of Conduct (CoC-VN) for Vietnamese enterprises sending workers for overseas employment.
Applying of this CoC-VN voluntarily will bring great benefits to development of each enterprise and the oversea employment for Vietnamese wokers as a whole.

This Code of conduct is an important instrument for enterprises for their better legal compliance; better business management and prevention of forced labor and human trafficking, especially against vulnerable workers such as female workers.
