About OTL

Some of the most common and widespread issues of forced labor and modern slavery have their roots in malpractices that occur during the recruitment process, largely related to exploitative fees charged to workers by recruitment practitioners at multiple points in their recruitment journey.

On The Level (OTL) was developed as a certification program for recruitment and labor agencies that is intended to bridge the gap between recruitment agencies that need business incentives to operate ethically and businesses that require labor suppliers that meet a set of globally-recognized set of standards. OTL creates transparency in the recruitment process through robust systems and procedures implemented by a competent third party and an Integrity System that adds worker and stakeholder feedback and validation to the verification process.
