Labor Line: A Global Complaints + Grievance Management Tool for Complex Supply Chains


With the increasing emphasis on corporate human rights due diligence regulations, it’s imperative for companies to have robust mechanisms in place for collecting, addressing and remediating grievances from within a company’s value chain.


Labor Solutions’ Labor Line is a leading solution for businesses striving to create a safer, more responsive, and legally compliant workplace throughout their value chain. Labor Line is a Labor Solutions managed global complaints and grievance mecahnism to ensure workers have access to remediation.


Global companies are now required and or strongly encouraged by several new and emerging human rights due diligence regulations to have third-party grievance mechanism for their entire supply chain to ensure workers have a safe, anonymous, and accessible way to report concerns or violations.


The German Act on Corporate Due Diligence Obligations in Supply Chains and the EU’s Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence Directive (CSDD)both require a complaints procedure for rights holders within a company’s value chain. The United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and the United States Government National Action Plan on Responsible Business Conduct strongly recommend and encourage businesses to provide a grievance mechanism for supply chains.  


In response to these new laws, Labor Solutions developed Labor Line, a purpose-built case management system that streamlines the grievance process while ensuring compliance with new and pending legislation. As a global, Labor Solutions managed, supplier engaged helpline, it offers:

  • Labor Solutions Managed: All cases come directly to LS who triages the case, ensures appropriate escalate and response and responds to the worker once the case is ready to be closed.
