WORKPLACE - Reporting & Actions

1.3.1 Minimum age of employment - Reporting

Does the company report on operations and suppliers considered to have significant risk for incidents of child labour?

Scoring options

  • 10: Yes, the company reports on operations and/or suppliers considered to have significant risk for incidents of child labour and/or mentions incidents of child labour
  • 5: The company reports on the results of operations and supplier assessments but these are focused on human rights broadly (not specifically children’s rights)
  • 0: No, the company does not report on operations and suppliers considered to have significant risk for incidents of child labour

Rationale

To show commitment to a policy against child labour, it is important to be transparent about how it is being implemented and to what extent it is being complied with, so that any remedial action can be assessed against the prevalence of the issue.

What are we looking for?

A statement of number of cases of child labour being found (and ideally, what remedial action was taken) and/or risk for incidents of child labour identified by the company. Reporting on no cases found also gives points.
