Women migrant workers still working under unclear, unfair contracts, study finds,despite availability of best-practice templates
Abstract:
Hundreds of thousands of women migrant workers are laboring under contracts they don’t understand, in languages they cannot read, or that provide inadequate protection of their rights, a study has found. This problem persists despite the available of templates such as the Standards Terms of Employment (STOE).“While we talk about the multi-dimensional contributions made by the labour migrants, they continue to face problems in the entire migration cycle, in the countries of origin, transit and destination, which starts from the recruitment phase, in the workplace and during return. “It is the shared responsibility of all the stakeholders – the private sector recruiting agencies, employers, countries of origin, transit and destination and the international agencies to protect workers from all forms of exploitation, to ensure safety, security, health and well-being of the migrants,” Laxman Prasad Mainali, Secretary of the Nepal Ministry of Labour and Employment in his remarks.
