Should New Zealand ratify the Forced Labour Protocol?

Submissions closed: 14 April 2019, 5pm

The Forced Labour Protocol 2014 provides guidance on how to eliminate all forms of forced labour.

We want to know the views of the public as to whether you think we should ratify the Forced Labour Protocol 2014, or not.

  • If yes, why? If not, why not?
  • Are there particular areas in New Zealand law, policy or practice that would need to be changed before New Zealand could ratify?
  • Are there any specific issues you believe will need to be taken into consideration that we have missed?

Submissions are invited from all interested parties.

After the consultation, we will provide advice to the government which will be considered at Parliament.
