What companies do for Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games?
The UK Modern Slavery Act 2015 and Technical Intern Training Program
2016 March 22nd (Tue) 1pm-5pm, Free to attend, 30 participants, Simultaneous translation
The UK Modern Slavery Act was made last year, which requires commercial organization to make a slavery and human trafficking statement, including information about its supply chains.
In Japan, aging issue causes shortage of labour force. For Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games, the use of Technical Intern Training Program (TITP) is discussed in the 190th ordinary Diet session. However, TITP is criticized harshly by international organizations and news as slavery labour.
In this seminar various speakers show how companies should promote labour management of supply chain and develop human resources.
