The objective of this one hour webinar is to explore the contemporary issues around forced and bonded labour, and focus on key issues that relate to this treatment of labour and on migrant labour as a key issue driver where attention is increasing. Some describe the contemporary situation as “modern day slavery” which has led some jurisdictions to consider new legislation. The issue of bonded and forced labour has been coined as a growing ethical challenge for many organisations that source from a range of countries and is a key concern of many organisations with global value chains. In the UK for instance, there is so much concern that the British Parliament is introducing Modern Day Slavery legislation. We look at the underlying issues and then propose solutions that organisations may employ through responsible sourcing practices to mitigate the risks in their value chain and to reduce the potential impact on their corporate reputations.
