COVID-19 and Vulnerability to Human Trafficking for Forced Labor

COVID-19 and Vulnerability to Human Trafficking for Forced Labor

Verité has identified a number of factors that increase workers’ vulnerability to becoming victims of human trafficking, all of which will likely worsen during and after the COVID-19 crisis, including poverty, inequality, political instability, conflict, crime/violence, and tightening of restrictions on immigration.

Verité is excited to launch a major new program in Mexico to promote and protect labor rights more effectively in the sugarcane sector. SENDEROS will combine intensive rights training and grievance mechanisms for workers with closely coordinated efforts with both the Mexican government and the private sector to create a new approach to labor rights enforcement in a sector that has long experienced poor working conditions.
