by Global Labor Justice International Labor Rights Forum and Asia Floor Wage Alliance (AFWA) This panel will examine the full scope of obligations under the OECD Guidelines for actors from top to bottom of the garment supply chain — from investors to suppliers — and their implications for access to remedy especially for marginalized workers including informal sector workers, caste-oppressed workers, and women workers. We will interrogate what the COVID-19 crisis has exposed anew on these issues, including in the context of national level legislation and recent joint employer litigation in supplier countries.
