HTS Screening for Office and Service Industries

Question 

Should a software company without part or material suppliers include office vendors or service-industry workers in its human trafficking and slavery (HTS) program?

Answer

Yes, companies should include service-industry workers and vendors that keep their office running such as meal providers, utility companies or drug screenings in their HTS program. This aspect of due diligence is especially important because service providers often use workers who are highly vulnerable to forced labor.
