What is Human Trafficking and Modern-day Slavery Legislation?

 

Emerging regulations such as the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act (2010), the EU Non-Financial Reporting Directive (2014), and the UK Modern Slavery Act (2015) have turned the spotlight on human rights issues as a major financial and reputational risk for companies and their supply chains.

 

These regulations require companies to take action to tackle and eradicate human trafficking, slavery, child labor, and other forms of human rights abuses within their own operations and supply chains. In order to comply with this emerging set of regulations, companies will need to improve their due diligence processes and increase transparency regarding how they identify and respond to human rights issues and risks.

 

Identifying, assessing, and mitigating risks related to human rights abuses throughout businesses and across supply chains pose a huge challenge to manufacturing companies due to the intricate web of internal and external entities involved.

 

Furthermore, many companies rely on haphazardly grown systems to support their risk management efforts, using a combination of manual procedures, spreadsheets, and auditing/certification processes spread across various regions, corporate silos, and numerous suppliers and sub-suppliers.

 

Continuously monitoring activities and risk indicators as well as producing one consistent, reliable overall corporate view of the status and extent of human rights-related risks can be extremely difficult when using home-grown systems, tools and techniques and resulting in inefficient, unreliable and frustrating processes.

 

Step 1: A framework for the private sector

 

In April 2016, iPoint released a commissioned framework of human trafficking and slavery laws for the private sector. Authored by Dr. Chris Bayer, the framework shows how the relevant legislation in the USA, EU, and UK relate to each other thematically. This may not only assist companies in their design of relevant programs, but furthermore frames the design of an integrated, liability-based reporting and compliance solution.  

 

Step 2: The electronic Labor Rights Template


The next step for iPoint is to make public an open-access anti-slavery reporting template that businesses may use for their supply chain reporting needs. To this end, the tool, aka eLRT (Electronic Labor Rights Template), is currently being reviewed by a stakeholder forum comprised of private sector, civil society, and government representatives to ensure the template’s sensitivity, robusticity, and responsiveness to the present reporting requirements and at-risk labor practices.

The template, along with the framework, will be available for download on the website

Step 3:The electronic Labor Rights Module

 

In parallel, iPoint will also release a module within the iPoint Compliance Agent and Platform – which also includes, e.g., the Conflict Minerals tool used by 37,500 companies – for processing the data.
