immage

The Good Labor Practices model (GLP)  addresses policy for labor protections and eradication of exploitation and human trafficking, including support for measures to combat child labor in the fisheries. Relevant agencies from the government, private organizations and business owners should consider the GLP model to inform guidelines for promoting decent work conditions, labor and worksite inspections, preventing and managing cases of labor rights violations, mechanisms of filing grievances, issuing of work permits, registering MW and verification of nationality. Migrant workers (MW) working as deep-sea fishing boat crew are an especially vulnerable population with elevated risk of harm and exploitation due to human trafficking practices.
