Podcast overview

The U.S. forced labor rules—which prevent the import of goods made with forced labor—were originally enacted in 1930 as a move to protect U.S. manufacturers from low cost, foreign competition. More recently, the forced labor rules have become an instrument of change in the human rights arena. The U.S. government, civil society, and American consumers are demanding that companies ensure ethical behavior throughout their supply chains. But even the most ethical companies may have problems demonstrating good behavior. What’s at stake?

Joining podcast hosts Kimberly Majure and Kortney Wallace to discuss are George Zaharatos, a Trade & Customs principal from the KPMG Atlanta office, and our newest Futures guest, Pierfilippo Natta, a senior associate from the KPMG Trade & Customs group in San Diego.
