Model Agreement

We propose that institutional investors demand contractually binding language that includes the following key points:

1. Comprehensive Program: The firm commits to a program in which the domestic worker is interviewed, reimbursed any illegal fees, and given a contact in the case of abuse.

2. Mandatory: The program mandatory for all executives. It is not a voluntary “education” program. It is a compliance program strictly enforced and without loopholes.

3. All workers: The program applies even if the worker was not hired through an agency. Avoiding an agency is often a means to isolate the worker to facilitate abuse.

4. Supply Chain: The finance firm will require that executives at its own international suppliers (law, accounting, banking, consulting etc.) also adopt the program.
