In California, Companies Struggle To Combat Human Trafficking, Slavery In Compliance With Transparency in Supply Chains Act: Report:
The risk of human trafficking and slavery is prominent in supply
chains, many of which start on a farm and cross into various countries.
Supply chains, in which a raw material such as cotton from India goes
into an end-product like bedsheets at an American hotel, are often
complex and have many tiers, making it difficult to track, trace and
monitor production. The California act requires, at minimum, disclosure
of what actions the company is taking – if any – to stop labor abuses.
The required disclosures are to be posted on the company’s website with a
“conspicuous and easily understood link” to the required information.
“Traffickers can target vulnerable workers anywhere to fill labor
shortages everywhere along a supply chain,” the U.S. State Department
said in its 2015 Trafficking in Persons Report. “The sheets in a hotel may be made with cotton harvested by forced labor."
