Brazil’s slavery ‘dirty list’

Brazil’s slavery ‘dirty list’
•It is a registry of employers that have been found by the government to have engaged in slave labour.
•If a labour inspector fines someone for employing slave labour, it starts an internal government procedure where the employer can defend himself.
[After all possibility of appeal is exhausted, if the employer is found guilty, his name or the name of his firm is added to the list]
•Created in 2004, it has been hailed by the United Nations as a key tool in Brazil’s anti-slavery drive
