Information for Companies
Homeworkers Worldwide recommends companies adopt a homeworking policy, stating their positive recognition of the role homeworkers play in supply chains. This model homeworking policy provides a useful template with key principles to help you draw up your own company homeworking policy.
This Toolkit was produced by Traidcraft and Homeworkers Worldwide. It was produced in response to requests from companies for practical guidance, and examples of good practice to support their efforts to address child labour in the home-based craft sector. The ‘Toolkit’ was developed as part of the EC-funded project ‘Sustainable solutions in the fight against child labour in home-based craft production.’ The project was developed and implemented in partnership with ‘Fair Trade Forum India’, ‘Centre for Education and Communication’ and Traidcraft Exchange.
