A guide for companies and employers

The nature of trafficking in human beings (THB) for labour exploitation means it may be hidden, for example in the supply chain. The Danish Centre against Human Trafficking has made guidelines that serve as a quick guide for companies and employers at risk of becoming associated with forced labour and severe labour exploitation.

The guide has been made after consulting different stakeholders. It is intended as a tool for awareness, business risk management and prevention. The guide is designed as a practical online tool including checklists, which companies can apply to conduct risk assessment, risk management and prevention.

The guide encourages self-regulation and action. It gives measures that companies can apply to avoid unintentionally being associated with cases of hidden forced labour. Such an association may result in serious reputational damage and police investigations.

The guide is available in English and Danish.
