Abstract:  
Background and Aim: The approach of human rights activists is focused on making the issues and points related to the observance of human rights or its violation the responsibility of international companies. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to investigate the responsibility of international companies in cases of violation of human rights obligations in societies.
Materials and Methods: The present research method has been prepared as a descriptive analytical method using library data by taking notes from legal texts.
Findings: International human rights law obliges international companies to act in accordance with certain rules or to refrain from certain actions in order to promote and protect the human rights and fundamental freedoms of individuals and groups. By becoming a party to international treaties, companies are committed to fulfilling the responsibilities and duties under which the human rights of individuals must be respected and protected by governments.
Conclusion: The results show that human rights violations by international companies can not be prevented. But there seems to be no requirement for companies to comply with human rights, and international action by the United Nations and the International Labor Organization has also confirmed that since companies are not yet principal subjects of international law, there can be no punishment or It is a requirement for them and the agreement of the countries is not easily possible and only through voluntary actions and incentive and awareness policies, companies can be encouraged to respect human rights.
