UK Parliamentary Joint Committee Investigating Ability To Protect Against Human Rights Abuses


Today, Pillsbury partner Tim Wright published his client alert encouraging retailers to be vigilant in preventing human rights abuses in their supply chains whilst complying with their legal obligations. Tim’s alert is in response to the UK’s Parliamentary Joint Committee on Human Rights investigating human rights and businesses to determine whether retailers can ensure that human rights abuses do not occur in their supply chains and is particularly concerned about the use of child labour. Although the joint select committee heard from witnesses from the fashion industry, their work does have a wider remit. The Alert is titled Human Rights and Global Supply Chains.
