Access to Justice for Migrants
A new report, Migrant Workers’ Access to Justice for Wage Theft: A global study of promising initiatives, from Migrant Justice Institute Co-Executive Directors Bassina Farbenblum and Laurie Berg, was released in December 2021. Wage theft in the labour migration landscape is a global issue. The problem has been exacerbated during the Covid-19 pandemic as businesses encountered financial pressures and vast numbers of workers were repatriated without payment of their wages. The report outlines the problem of wage theft and provides examples of promising initiatives to reduce risks to migrant workers of reporting wage theft and lower the burdens of initiating claims to seek redress.
