ImpACT International for Human Rights Policies (UK)

Jordan: Israeli factory accused of violating migrants’ labour rights, incl. non-payment of wages, poor housing & arbitrary denial of freedoms

"Israeli factory repeatedly violates workers' rights in Jordan", 21 May 2021

ImpACT International for Human Rights Policies was informed of workers’ complaints, including nonpayment in unsanitary conditions in the factory, located in the Al-Hassan Industrial Estate in Irbid.

Forty-one workers, some of whom are Bengali and Indian migrants, have complained of not receiving their salaries since last January, reports ImpACT International. However, Hilbash Moshe has a long record of illegal and oppressive practices against its workers, especially related to wages and other rights. Many workers, for example, say that they are forced to surrender their passports upon employment to prevent them from traveling without management permission, which is a form of modern slavery and is a violation of their right to freedom of movement.

Moreover, workers complain of an unhealthy working environment, lack of food and clean water, and restrictions on their external communications.  

ImpACT International attempted to contact the factory's officials but received no response.
