Human Rights & Forced Labor
Lear is committed to protecting the environment and human rights in our global communities, operations and supply chain. We uphold the highest standards of ethical behaviour and compliance with all legal requirements. As our partners in business, we expect our suppliers to uphold those same standards.
Globally, nearly 25 million people fall victim to forced labor and there is known risk for the abuse of human rights in corporate supply chains. As part of our commitment, Lear is helping to increase awareness and mitigate forced labor and other human rights violations by identifying and sharing helpful data and tools with our employees and suppliers.
The resources below provide information about the risks and warning signs of child labor, forced labor and human trafficking. Lear’s global suppliers are expected to review and cascade the materials and messages to their employees and global supply network, as appropriate.
- “Ending child labour, forced labour and human trafficking in global supply chains”
Study conducted by the ILO, OECD, IOM and UNICEF.
- “Lured by a job, trapped in forced labour!” Animated video produced by ILO.
- Combating Forced Labour: A handbook for employers and business
