Is Forced Labor Part of Your Supply Chain?

April 3, 2024

VEDP’s Supply Chain Optimization Program is hosting this important webinar on the risks of forced labor in supply chains and updates on current risk mitigation strategies, presented by legal expert, Francesca Guerrero with Thompson Hine, LLC.

This webinar will enhance your company’s ability to recognize, mitigate, and eliminate forced labor from your supply chain. United States law prohibits the importation of goods mined, produced, or manufactured wholly or in part with forced labor. Companies that are not compliant can face seizure of goods, financial and reputational harm, and potentially face criminal and/or civil consequences.

Topics covered:

  • Role and responsibilities of the importer to eliminate forced labor from its supply chain
  • Understanding the legal enforcement framework of a forced labor investigation
  • Strategies and best practices to assess and mitigate risk
