Best Practice Guidance on Ethical Recruitment of Migrant Workers

Author: Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility (ICCR), Published on: 8 August 2017

...The purpose of ICCR’s Best Practice Guidance on Ethical Recruitment of Migrant Workers is to highlight the steps some leading companies have made that may serve as examples or models for other companies looking to implement ethical recruitment policies, and drive change at the recruitment agency level. By examining eight companies in high risk sectors, ICCR provides an analysis of emerging best practices in the development of corporate ethical recruitment policies and identifies gaps where improvement is needed. We hope this analysis will serve companies, suppliers, workers and the investment community. Several of these case studies are based on ICCR member engagements. Additional case studies are the result of research furnished by Social Accountability International (SAI).

The eight companies participating in case studies represent an array of industries from food and beverage, to apparel, electronics, and agriculture, and are located in the Asia- Pacific region (India, Thailand, Malaysia, Taiwan), Africa and the United States. [Includes Coca-Cola, CP Foods, Hewlett Packard, Patagonia, Penguin Apparel, Princes Tuna, Thai Union] 

[Identifies and provides guidance on best practice in policy development, direct recruitment, working with suppliers, auditing tools, compliance with local law, recruitment fees recimbursement, beyond compliance, and leadership]
