Why do I need to learn about decent work?
Pinpointing when exploitative labour becomes forced labour is complex and difficult. By being proactive and focusing on efforts in realising the rights of workers, their families and communities, companies can significantly contribute to eliminating labour exploitation which could progress into more serious forms of modern slavery and negatively impact the company itself. Promoting and maintaining decent work in the workplace is the best way to prevent issues such as modern slavery, and makes it easier to identify when there may be instances of human rights violations such as forced labour or health and safety violations. The modules in this course include the following:
- What decent work is
- Why businesses should care about decent work
- The benefits of decent work
- COVID-19 implications and
- A practical action plan on how to carry out decent work.
