Due diligence toolkit for fair recruitment

The fair recruitment toolkit developed by the Global Business Network on Forced Labour helps businesses, especially SMEs (small- and medium-sized enterprises), to set out a due diligence process when hiring workers from abroad. It features step-by-step guidance for companies throughout the recruitment process.


The toolkit has now been translated into French and Spanish.

The toolkit helps businesses answer the following questions:

  • Do you have an approach to, or policy on, fair recruitment?
  • Can you identify the main risks?
  • Do you have an action plan to manage and reduce risks?
  • How do you track progress?
  • Can you address problems and complaints?


The toolkit has an additional section on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on recruitment, and points businesses towards useful additional resources.
