Qatar: Pledge to end abusive ‘kafala’ system must truly transform workers’ rights

Alle Tags anzeigen

Amnesty International’s Deputy Director of Global Issues, Stephen Cockburn said:

“... it would be a major step forward if these measures finally allow workers to return home or change jobs without restriction. We will be closely scrutinizing the details of this announcement and pushing for any positive measures to be quickly and fully implemented...

“Far too often workers have continued to face exploitation and abuse despite reforms... We hope this time will be different, and that Qatar can truly transform its labour laws to fully respect the rights of its migrant workers. This must also mean more rigorously enforcing its labour laws and holding abusive employers to account.”
