Reduce Human Trafficking in the Supply Chain

Gain an understanding of your company's obligations regarding human trafficking in your supply chains.

Human trafficking is a violation of human rights. Global supply chains consist of complex, lengthy, intertwined business relationships, and managing them pose logistical, practical, cultural, and legal challenges to multinational companies. Human trafficking can and does occur in these complex global supply chains. This topic explores the legal obligations that companies face in identifying, preventing, and mitigating human trafficking that occur in global supply chains. Review practical strategies that companies can deploy in meeting these obligations, in light of the challenges posed by the fact that they often have limited leverage over or visibility into certain portions of the global supply chain.
