CHENNAI, India, Oct 19 (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - H undreds of Indian migrant workers who were
laid off by a construction company in Saudi Arabia due to the coronavirus pandemic have filed a rare
complaint to the Indian government over unpaid earnings, lawyers and campaigners said.
More than 280 labourers - who were fired by the Nasser S Al Hajri Corporation before being flown home on
chartered flights in July - are part of what is believed to be the biggest collective case of its kind, said their
lawyer Subhash Chand.
