Forum on Due Diligence in the Garment and Footwear Sector

Join session


Partner: ACT Processes to enable remedy are a core aspect of OECD due diligence guidance. Effective dispute resolution mechanisms are a win-win for workers and employers: they provide avenues to remedy for workers and stability for industry. And yet, grievance or dispute resolution mechanisms are still fairly weak in global value chains.

It will explore how grievance mechanisms can be designed by affected parties and the role of global brands in using joint leverage to monitor outcomes amongst other key questions in reaching OECD effectiveness criteria.
