Government consulting on forced labour, people trafficking and slavery

October 09, 2020 at 4:20 PM

From the NZFVC

The Ministry of Business Innovation and Employment is seeking feedback on a draft Plan of Action against forced labour, people trafficking and slavery.

The draft plan, Combatting Modern Forms of Slavery: Draft Plan of Action against Forced Labour, People Trafficking and Slavery 2020-25, sets out a high level framework for the actions that agencies will undertake between 2020 - 2025. 

The deadline to give feedback on the draft plan is 16 October 2020.

In 2019, New Zealand ratified the International Labour Organization’s Forced Labour Protocol and committed to take serious and effective action to address forced labour. This includes developing a plan of action against forced labour. The existing Plan of Action to Prevent People Trafficking was published in 2009 and is being updated to reflect the changes that have occurred since that time. The new plan addresses forced labour, people trafficking and slavery as these are closely linked.
