Ending Human Trafficking: Indicators of Forced Labour
What are the indicators of Forced Labor?
The International Labour Organization (ILO) has developed a list of indicators to help front-line workers identify persons who might be trapped in a forced labor situation, and who may need urgent assistance. These are the most common indicators of possible forced labor: abuse of vulnerability; deception; restriction of movement; isolation; physical and sexual violence; intimidation and threats; retention of identity documents; withholding of wages; debt bondage; abusive working and living conditions; excessive overtime.
