Working Wise: Tackling Risks Related to Forced Labor, Child Labor and Human Trafficking in Supply Chains

A HUB Talks Podcast
17 October 2017
Presenters: Amy L. Groff

In this episode, we discuss best practices and risks relating to issues such as forced labor, child labor and human trafficking in global supply chains. Following the passage of the UK Modern Slavery Act (and earlier related legislation in the U.S.), several other countries have introduced or passed legislation in this area that impacts global companies. Just recently, the U.S. Department of Labor issued a news release that included information about new research and a new app called “Comply Chain” to help businesses combat child labor and modern slavery, as well as a new version of the “Sweat and Toil” app that provides relevant data about labor practices and risk organized by country and product type.
