Corporate human rights abuse is defined as the exploitation of basic human rights by a company for its own benefits. In the context of Cuba, corporate human rights abuse is not a prominent issue. This is because although the private sector employment has been steadily rising from 8.2% in 1981 to an estimated one third of the workforce in 2016, two-thirds of the entire workforce is still under public sector employment. Trade unions in Cuba, which protect workers’ rights also possesses incredible power. Cuban workers take part in the elaboration and control of their companies’ production plans. If the company does not fulfill its obligations towards its workers, their trade union will have the authority to demand compliance with the established norms, effectively protecting workers’ rights. Cuba is against corporate human rights abuse. This can be seen through the various labour laws that Cuba has imposed over the years. On the 28th of September, 2015, Cuba ratified the Worst Forms of Child Labour Convention, which calls for the prohibition of the worst forms of child labour, effectively joining the global fight against child labour in all its forms. Other examples would include the ratification of the Promotional Framework for Occupational Safety and Health Convention on the 5th of August 2008, and the ratification of the Maternity Protection Convention on the 1st of June 2004. These labour laws represents a positive development in Cuba’s continued path towards the full respect of fundamental human rights in regards to corporations. One key problem faced by the Cuban government when trying to go after corporations which are infringing on human rights, is the outright political corruption that exists. Corruption has always been a problem in Cuba. For instance, companies may bribe officials to “overlook” their regulations regarding their employee rights, therefore allowing these countries to slip through the cracks and go unnoticed. In the Corruption Perception Index (CPI) in 2016, Cuba is rated of 47 on a scale of 0 (“very clean”) to 100 (“very corrupt”), showing that there is perceived corruption in Cuba. Thus, the corporations which are perpetrators of human rights abuses are often not held accountable and the right to remedy for victims is not always realized.In view of these issues, Cuba proposes a stricter crackdown on corruption within its own country, as well as for nations all over the world. One effective way to bring about the curbing of corruption is through the promotion of transparency and access to information to the public. With the information regarding how corporations operate and the role of the government in regulating these corporations now accessible by the public, citizens will be better informed about where their interests lie, and know when their rights have been violated. The increase in transparency will also promote the increase of responsiveness of the government, and Corrupt officials will be more easily identified and weeded out. By empowering the public, the government is able to crack down on corruption, and consequently, reduce corporate human rights abuse.
