This report begins by offering key findings from recent Verité research on the intersection of brokers, migrant workers and slavery. This research was performed in a variety of sectors and locales across the globe, including: the migration of adults from India to the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) States of the Middle East for work in construction, infrastructure and the service sector; the migration of children and juveniles from the Indian interior to domestic apparel production hubs; the migration of adults from Guatemala, Mexico and Thailand to work in U.S. agriculture; and the migration of adults from the Philippines, Indonesia and Nepal to the Information Technology sector in Malaysia and Taiwan.

The report is divided in 3 sections:

Section I – Labor Brokers and Hiring Traps in the Global Economy: Findings from Verité Research
Section II – What to Look For: Red flags for Vulnerability to Broker-Induced Hiring Traps
Section III – The Way Forward: Action to Promote the Fair Hiring of Migrant Workers in the Global Economy
