ETI Base Code Guidance: Disability in Global Supply Chains

People with disabilities make up an estimated 15 per cent of the world's population. About 80 per cent are of working age but the majority do not work. They face enormous attitudinal, physical and informational barriers to equal opportunities in the world of work.

ETI provides guidance to its members and others on a range of labour rights relating to its Base Code of Labour Standards. As part of this, ETI is seeking a consultant to help develop a new guide on disability. The primary purpose of the guide is to:

  • Support companies to understand and respond to disability issues in their supply chains
  • Help companies meet the requirements of relevant national labour and human rights laws in sourcing countries, and other international legislation relating to disability discrimination
  • Provide practical guidance for companies on tackling disability discrimination and facilitating disability inclusion in supply chains
  • Provide practical advice and concrete examples of good practice
  • Signpost to other useful resources

The Terms of reference provides further information on this opportunity including the expected deliverables, methodology and the application process. Please note that the guide will need to be delivered by early June 2018.

The deadline for applications is 5 March 2018. Responses to the Terms of Reference should be emailed to [email protected] with the subject line ‘Disability Base Code Guidance’.
