In collaboration with the Law Centres Network and the Baring Foundation, I’m delighted to share with you a new ebook called Supporting Migrant Workers. Download your free copy by subscribing here.
This ebook provides an accessible guide to the law governing migrant workers’ rights. It is aimed at lawyers and other advisers.
Supporting Migrant Workers bridges the gap between employment and immigration law and covers both the practicalities of obtaining legal redress in UK Courts and Tribunals and the latest developments in this fast-moving area.
The law currently does not protect persons from discrimination because of vulnerable immigration status. However, through a combination of domestic claims and international law, the social and economic rights of migrants may be protected and enforced.
The ebook includes:
- A guide to basic employment rights & areas of difficulty
- Hostile environment: the ‘right to work’ system and Windrush cases
- Gig economy: recent case law and government policy
- Modern slavery: compensation claims for victims of trafficking and exploitation
- Practical exercises
As I say in the Preface:
Migrant workers’ rights are only meaningful when they can be understood, accessed and enforced effectively. I hope that this publication contributes something small to that process at a time of anxiety for many migrants.
I plan to run a number of training sessions across the UK on these issues. Please visit the Law Centres Network website for more details. If your firm or organisation is interested in related training, please contact me.
