Precarious work

Across the globe, people are working under precarious conditions, with little or no guarantee of employment stability, social protection or respect for labour rights. Informal, casual, seasonal, agency and temporary work have become common across sectors, from agriculture to electronics to garments. Precarious work is a particular problem for vulnerable groups of workers, including women, migrants, children and indigenous people. We expose the role of corporations in creating and maintaining precarious work and exploitation of labour in various sectors. We focus on child and migrant labour, gender discrimination and human trafficking. We advocate for improved employment contracts, corporate supply chain liability, and enforcement by governments of existing rights and rules to ensure decent work for all.
