Human Rights and Labour Working Group

The Human Rights and Labour Working Group (HRLWG) is an expert group comprising representatives from business, civil society, trade unions, academia, UN agencies, and Global Compact Local Networks working on business and human rights. The Secretariat for the HRLWG is the UN Global Compact, UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights and the International Labour Organization.

The HRLWG provides guidance on respect and support for the UN Global Compact’s human rights and labour principles by identifying, developing and disseminating good practices. The HRLWG also reviews new and existing tools and resources to ensure alignment with the Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, and supports the human rights activities of Global Compact Local Networks.
