Going beyond CSR: Why corporate firms in India should take ‘Modern-Day Slavery’ seriously

Abstract

This article argues that it is high time Corporate India takes human rights violations in their supply chains very seriously. This is in the light of growing transnational modern slavery laws passed by US and European countries which can result in serious litigation costs, reputational damage, restrict access to US and European consumer markets, loss of business and substantial financial costs.
