Migrant workers charged US$7,000 – to work

The migrant worker standard was developed with labour rights NGO Verité and covers every aspect of employment, including pre-hiring interactions, labour contracts, wages and fees, retention of passports, living and working conditions, grievance procedures and repatriation.
