In Denmark and abroad, business sectors experience new challenges related to the use of foreign labour. This includes undeclared work, pressure on working conditions and, at worst cases involving human trafficking for forced labour. 

The cost of being associated with human trafficking for forced labour may be high. Danish and foreign companies which have been involved in cases of trafficking for forced labour have experienced media exposure. This has caused serious damage to the companies´ reputation, resulting in loss of customers and a significant drop in earnings. In the worst cases, this has resulted in police investigations with subsequent lawsuits and convictions. 

The Centre against Human Trafficking has prepared these guidelines for companies and employers regarding the risk of human trafficking for forced labour. The guidelines offer methods to avoid being associated with such cases. The guidelines are an information, risk management and prevention tool, and target all sectors.
