Ethical Recruitment Training for Labor Providers
Caesar Park Hotel Taipei, Taiwan
The RBA, through its Responsible Labor Initiative (RLI), is currently implementing a project on Enhancing Fair and Ethical Recruitment to Combat Modern Slavery to support its efforts to drive responsible recruitment and employment in the Vietnam-Taiwan migration corridor.
This 12-month inception phase project creates opportunities for ethical recruitment agencies to align their recruitment principles with employers that serve RBA/RLI member companies that uphold "workers shall not be required to pay fees for their employment” principle.
As part of the project, the RLI team will be organizing an Ethical Recruitment training at the Caesar Park Hotel Taipei in October/November timeframe.
The primary target group of participants for this training are labor providers (manpower suppliers) in Taiwan. The course introduces the standards embodied in the RBA protocol on forced labor and will provide insight to how these standards are applied to participants’ business processes. It will contextualize these standards within legal drivers such as the California Transparency Act, the Foreign Acquisition Regulation (FAR), the U.K. Transparency in Supply Chains Act, among others, and increasing demands from different stakeholders for ethical recruitment practices that avoid forced labor, human trafficking and modern day slavery.
The course will help participants assess themselves against RBA’s protocol on forced labor and prepare action plans that identify internal policies, processes, systems and competencies that need to be in place to meet them.
This training is open to labor providers (manpower suppliers) in Taiwan that are supplying to members or suppliers of RBA/RLI member companies.
Participants must be owners, managers, training officers, recruitment and selection officers or its equivalent. They are expected to share and cascade the learnings from the training after attending the course to other staff within their companies.
Each labor providers are allowed a maximum of two (2) seats per company, with the possibility of a third seat depending on availability.
This training will be conducted in English with simultaneous interpretation to Chinese.
