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.

In English   En français   En español

 

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.

Guidance note: Wage protection for migrant workers

Working time and wages are the working conditions that have the most direct and tangible effect on the everyday lives of workers and employers. Wages can determine job choice, the number of hours worked, and whether or not to migrate for employment. Adequate wages that ensure a fair share of the fruits of progress to all and standards for wage protection lie at the heart of the ILO’s mandate on social justice and the promotion of decent work.
