Justice for Wage Theft
Call for an Urgent Justice Mechanism for Repatriated Migrant Workers
for a transitional justice mechanism
The transitional justice mechanism will address grievances, claims and labour disputes of repatriated workers who have lost their jobs as a result of the pandemic. That the mechanism needs to be expedited, accessible, affordable, and efficient.
It should be a priority to guarantee that all repatriated workers with legitimate claims are able to access justice and some kind of compensation.
Safeguards must be put in place to ensure that migrants are able to pursue their cases post return, with access to legal advice and support and without delay.
States should require employers and businesses to keep all employment records, including payroll, employee lists, and hours worked and allow workers to take copies of their records with them.
