This Guide applies the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (“Guiding Principles”) to the specific context of employment and recruitment (“E&R”) agencies. Recognizing that each company is different, it is intended to help E&R agencies “translate” respect for human rights into their own systems and company cultures. It summarizes what the Guiding Principles expect, offers a range of ideas and examples for how to put them into practice, and links the user to additional resources that can support their work. It does not propose a set management system but rather leaves companies the flexibility they need to implement the Guiding Principles in their own particular circumstances. The Guide’s various sections can be referred to as and when needed during the ongoing process of implementation.
