Complying with human rights legislation has become particularly important for multinational corporations. In a world where business transactions often transcend national boundaries, due diligence concerning human rights initiatives requires multinational companies to comply with legal pronouncements and social expectations to help avoid liability for human rights violations.

This bulletin describes the initiatives taken in five jurisdictions to ensure the protection of human rights and the promotion of diversity and equality of treatment for workers, whether as employees or independent contractors. The jurisdictions under consideration are Germany, Great Britain, Australia, South Africa and Canada.
