Labour Migration Process Mapping Guide: Understanding and Assessing Human and Labour Rights Risks to Migrant Workers During Recruitment, Employment and Return

The Labour Migration Process Mapping Guide aims to help business enterprises identify, mitigate, and address human and labour rights risks faced by migrant workers in global supply chains. It provides step-by-step instructions on how to retrace the steps that migrant workers take from their communities of origin to their workplaces in destinations, and determine the effectiveness of existing recruitment management systems to prevent and address forced labour risks.
