KnowTheChain: Responsible recruitment of migrant workers
Migrant workers are among those hardest-hit by COVID-19. The worker rights organisation Migrant Forum Asia calls for a justice mechanism to support the millions of migrant workers who have had their wages withheld. Even migrant workers who have lost their jobs and had their wages retained during the COVID-19 pandemic are forced to pay off recruitment fees—another reason why workers urgently need their wages to be paid. With a focus on recruitment fees, this briefing examines the commitments companies make and the steps they take to ensure that migrant workers’ rights are respected.
