SAI has released a guidance document to help SA8000-certified organizations and others navigate the uncertainty they are now facing due to disruptions from the COVID-19 pandemic. This second version of the guidance reviews possible labor and social performance risks associated with the pandemic and its economic impacts and provides guidance for mitigating those risks. We hope this guidance will support organizations to manage a quick and safe return to work while protecting vulnerable workers following this crisis.
We will continue to add to and update this guidance as the situation evolves.
