Where an employers’ organization is the complainant, it can follow up directly on the measures taken to implement the recommendations of the CFA and inform about compliance or non-compliance with them.
Where actions by enterprises are implicated by CFA recommendations, governments are requested to follow up with employers’ organizations concerned. For example, if the recommendation involves the reinstatement of workers, the relevant enterprise will have to keep the government abreast of its actions in that regard, via the employers’ organization.
Governments provide information on the manner in which the recommendations made by the CFA are implemented. This will be either to the CFA, or in response to comments made by the CEACR in the regular supervision of the relevant ratified Conventions.
At each of its sessions, the Governing Body receives the CFA report for approval. The report contains findings and conclusions for several cases before the CFA, reflecting as well each case’s stage of handling – whether a complain had just been received, a government’s observations has been requested or received, the matter treated substantively, etc.
Where the relevant Conventions have been ratified, in the report the CFA may decide to bring the relevant legislative aspects of a case to the attention of the CEACR. In this way, the government involved will normally be asked to reply to comments made by the CEACR on the conformity of the legislation and its application in practice with the ratified Convention. The CEACR will thus follow up on the outstanding issues related to the Convention until the requested action has been taken and the issue of compliance has been resolved.

Where the relevant Conventions have not been ratified, the CFA will follow up on its recommendations.
