FAIR RECRUITMENT INITIATIVE - Fostering fair recruitment practices, preventing human trafficking and reducing the costs of labour migration
PDF File Size: 2.31 MB | Download   
In today’s globalized economy, workers are increasingly looking for job opportunities
beyond their home country in search of decent working conditions. In addition, millions of workers migrate internally. Public and private employment agencies, when
appropriately regulated, play an important role in the efficient and equitable functioning of labour markets.
However, concerns have been raised about the growing role of unscrupulous employment agencies, informal labour intermediaries and other operators acting outside the legal and regulatory framework that prey especially on low-skilled workers. Reported abuses involve one or more of the following: deception about the nature and conditions of work; retention of passports; deposits and illegal wage deductions; debt bondage linked to repayment of recruitment fees; threats if workers want to leave their employers, coupled with fears of subsequent expulsion from a country. A combination of these abuses can amount to human trafficking and forced labour. Despite the existence of international labour standards relating to recruitment, national laws and their enforcement often fall short of protecting the rights of workers, and migrant workers in particular.
