Homeworkers Worldwide has been working on the issue of women homeworkers stitching the leather uppers for many years, in many different countries. This report provides a more detailed look at the recent work with homeworkers in Ambur in Tamil Nadu, in partnership with Cividep.
This summary report describes the first phase of our on-going project with Pentland Brands, tracing the homeworkers within their leather footwear supply chain in South India.
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.
The HomeNet Guide to the ILO Convention is available in English and Spanish.
This guide is aimed at retailers who may have homeworkers in their UK supply chains, and companies who work directly with homeworkers here in the UK. It shows how a best practice approach to homeworking can help your business, as well as providing practical guidance on UK employment law as it relates to homeworkers.
