Can We Stop Workers Paying For A Job?
14 November 2016
By John Morrison, Chief Executive, IHRB
Amidst the throws of the largest gathering of the business and human rights community, IHRB's Chief Executive John Morrison discusses with the US Mission in Geneva a global initiative to tackle one of the root causes of modern slavery - worker fees.
A major cause of forced labour in today’s global supply chains is the charging of recruitment fees to migrant workers.
Reflecting the Dhaka Principles for Migration with Dignity, the Employer Pays Principle is a commitment to ensure that no worker should pay for a job. It is endorsed by the Leadership Group for Responsible Recruitment, a collaboration between leading companies and expert organisations driving positive change in the way that migrant workers are recruited.
