Slovenia -Union takes a stand for migrant workers -September 07, 2014

The trade union confederation ZSSS underlined at a press conference that the country needs to improve its administration system as regards migrant workers. Exploitation of migrant workers is still an ongoing problem. In many cases employers send migrant workers to do a job abroad and when the work is completed and the person comes to collect the wage, they either do not get paid at all, or receive much less money than previously agreed.

In many cases employers send migrant workers to do a job abroad and when the work is completed and the person comes to collect the wage, they either do not get paid at all, or receive much less money than previously agreed. The worker's social contributions are also not covered. NGOs who fight for migrant rights pose the question: ‘How is it possible that companies in Slovenia who have problems with liquidity or have frozen accounts are still able to hire?’
