Across the world, unscrupulous recruitment agencies and their sub-agents charge workers high fees to connect them with foreign employers.
To pay these fees, migrant workers and their families take on large debts at high interest rates. These debts can take many months—sometimes years—to pay back.
Workers who find that their working conditions and wages are not what they were promised, or who are subject to rights violations, rarely complain. They do not want to risk being fired and sent home before they have paid their recruitment debts.
Recruitment fees for workers have been documented to result in forced labour and debt bondage—this must not be tolerated!
NO WORKER SHOULD HAVE TO PAY RECRUITMENT FEES TO SECURE DECENT WORK!
