Summary

Julia Planitzer provided (PPP) examples and highlighted gaps and the reasons for limited application of corporate criminal liability, gaps in claiming wages in subcontracting and discussed how and which alternative/complementary complaints mechanisms can be used. She further explained about company-based grievance mechanisms (criteria they would need to fulfil etc.) or collective redress actions . Her  presentation focussed on exploitation taking place in Europe (hence not European companies acting outside Europe, or questions of extraterritoriality etc.)
