Oman: Investigation reveals that Sierra Leonean workers face deception and mistreatment by recruitment agencies

"Oman: Sierra Leone workers deceived by recruitment agencies, investigation finds" 04 May 2021

The investigation by Oman’s Human Rights Commission (OHRC) over the alleged mistreatment of domestic workers from Sierra Leone has found out that the workers were deceived by recruitment agencies in their countries.

The investigation was carried out by the OHRC following the publishing of reports by the International Organisation for Migration and The Guardian about the mistreatment of Sierra Leonean workers.

..... In addition, the domestic workers were also persuaded regarding the nature of jobs, monthly wages, and the place of residence, before travelling. As a result, some of them escaped from their employers after discovering discrepancy in the agreement with their countries’ recruitment agencies.
