Lithuania - Recruitment and exploitation often go hand in hand - April 30, 2016

A report in the frame of the so-called LABCIT-project documents how labour recruitment and migration function. Based on interviews the authors found that, even though many different institutions are involved in the monitoring and regulation of recruitment agencies, the number of exploitation cases, with non-respect of workers’ rights and labour standards, is relatively high. Victims of labour rights violations emphasised that the relevant institutions which should act in the cases of workers exploitation are too passive and the victims feel too vulnerable to look for help.
