Human trafficking isn't just a threat to victims — it's a threat to any business that knowingly or unknowingly gets involved.
Whether you do business in one country or 50, you need to take precautions against your workforce, your contractors and sub-contractors, or your supply chain being tainted by forced labor, child labor, debt bondage and even 21st-century slavery.
Businesses can no longer make excuses; they cannot say, "We didn't know." Even when you don't have a legal responsibility, you will be judged by the public.
waiting for a human-rights tragedy or public relations scandal to hit,
you can take proactive steps.
