FLA to Host Fair Wage Conference - 26 October 2009

FLA - Fair Labor AssociationIncreasing international concern regarding wage practices is driving a number of CSR initiatives on this topic; however, efforts are fragmented and would benefit from a more comprehensive and coherent approach.

The FLA is hosting a conference, “Wages Along the Supply Chain: Assessment and Prospects,” on October 26, 2009 prior to its October Board of Directors meeting aimed at developing a framework for addressing wage issues and enhancing the role of different stakeholders. The conference will bring together practitioners and academics working on wages, working conditions, and corporate social responsibility, to help better define the main wage issues and the most relevant wage variables with which to make recommendations on how wage issues could be progressively included into CSR.
