Two apps for Android and iPhone released by the U.S. Bureau of International Labor Affairs aim to make it easier for organizations to recognize human trafficking and modern slavery, and be able to create and improve compliance programs for global supply chains. The apps, “Comply Chain: Business Tools for Labor Compliance in Global Supply Chains,” and “Sweat & Toil: Child Labor, Forced Labor, and Human Trafficking Around the World,” are available to download free from the U.S. Department of Labor website.
Some things you can do with these apps are:
“Check countries’ efforts to eliminate child labor;
“Find child labor data;
“Browse goods produced with child labor or forced labor;
“Review laws and ratifications; and
“See what governments can to do end child labor.”
“Study practical, step-by-step guidance on eight critical elements of social compliance.”
