UAE: Gasco Co. allegedly fails to provide healthcare as police urge employers to meet COVID-19 obligations; co. did not respond

In April 2020, an Indian worker employed by Gasco Co. made a plea for assistance on social media, alleging that he was suffering coronavirus-like symptoms but that he had not received help from his employer.

Ajman Police organised for medical staff to attend his accommodation and it was found the worker was not suffering from COVID-19. They communicated with the company "to keep a regular check on the health of workers".

Business & Human Rights Resource Centre contacted Gasco to invite them to respond to the worker's allegations; they did not provide a response.
