The U.S. government uses the research to inform policy positions and help foreign governments eliminate the worst forms of child labor. Businesses can also use the app's features to learn how to address child labor and forced labor in their own supply chains.
Comply Chain: Business Tools for Labor Compliance in Global Supply Chains is a comprehensive resource designed to help businesses root out child labor, forced labor, and modern slavery from their global supply chains. The app guides users through a step-by-step process to develop stronger social compliance systems.
The Office of Child Labor, Forced Labor, and Human Trafficking publishes in-depth reports to help governments combat labor abuses, including: the Findings on the Worst Forms of Child Labor and the List of Goods Produced with Child and Forced Labor. The DOL contracted ICF to update its Sweat & Toil mobile app, which helps consumers, businesses, and policymakers see the extent of child and forced labor, as well as summarizes foreign governments' efforts to address child labor exploitation.
