05 Guidance for forced labour grievances
Many companies all along the palm oil supply chain have made commitments to no exploitation as part of their responsible palm production and sourcing commitments and policies.
Under No Exploitation, forced labour is a key issue as, if not done correctly, it can result in workers not being employed voluntarily or under conditions that can have negative impacts on their human rights.
This document provides practical and action-oriented guidance on how to manage and address grievances related to forced labour in the palm oil sector. The guidance provides information about how to verify and identify causes of grievances, develop action plans for remediation and resolution, and minimise chances of future non-compliance and conflict.
