New training: Involuntary Work
March 03, 2020
The digital training, developed together with Ethical Trading Initiative, is built to educate and instill an understanding among factories for the issue of involuntary work, its repercussions and remediation amongst businesses and their management. The training aims to create awareness and reduce instances of involuntary work, promote ethical recruitment and outline the preventive measures factories can take to avoid the serious consequences of modern slavery for workers and their business.
The Involuntary Work training, available in China, consist of three learning modules and takes approximately 30 minutes to complete:
- Introduction to modern slavery
- Employment practices
- Workplace policies

Why Involuntary Work?
There has been a big confusion on what modern slavery is, what equivalence of modern slavery is in different country contexts, how to identify it, and what actions and remediation steps to take once it has been identified. Recent years have seen Modern Slavery as one of the biggest concerns, as businesses undertake their daily due diligence.
An estimated 24.9 million men, women, and children across the globe are in some form of forced labour, according to the International Labour Organization (ILO). Modern slavery, or involuntary work, can range from debt bondage to the worst forms of child labour and can be found in any part of the supply chain and in any country. Most of the cases of involuntary labour are in Asia with the highest risk being in the lowest tiers of the supply chain where there is often little or no visibility.
