In this Webinar Learning session: Forced Labor in Plain Sight, Stantec and Gensuite will provide practical insights and guidance on how to define/identify Forced Labor in supply chain and manufacturing context for brands and suppliers. Despite years of awareness that has been raised by media and the NGO community, cases of forced labor exhibit similar conditions and circumstances within global industries – the impacted workforce is vulnerable, there is a forced dependency on employers beyond wages, and coercion which can manifest itself in various forms of subtle intimidation. In some instances, human trafficking leads to forced labor, but forced labor often exists independently of trafficking.
Following indicators on Forced labor will be discussed and followed by a Q&A session:
- Recruitment fees
- Debt bondage
- Withheld wages
- Retention of documents
- No freedom of movement
- Lack of employment contracts
- Parul Chandra – Introduction to Forced Labor
- Donovan Hornsby – Use of Technology to Address Forced Labor
- All – Q&A
