Construction & Security Services
Migrant workers are a high-risk group for human trafficking and labour exploitation. And as the construction industry heavily relies on migrant workers, it is at a high-risk to contribute to these issues. In many countries, forced labour practices occur through informal and clandestine recruitment systems involving internal or international migrants. Some recruitment agencies charge workers exorbitant fees, that can even be as high as a year’s worth of salary, to place them in construction jobs abroad. After they migrate, workers can be found in trafficked or forced labour situations where they are tied to one employer without the right to leave or where unlawful deductions are made from their wages.
