Overseas Workers Resource Centre - An Overview
Several Indians are employed abroad in lower skill level jobs. Many of the Indian low skill workers employed abroad sometimes face problems such as poor working and living conditions and other challenges. Generally issues occur during three stages – pre-deployment, post-deployment and reintegration phase. The issues mainly pertain to exploitation by recruiting agencies, withholding of passports and related documents by employers, withholding and delaying of wages and other entitlements by employers. Problems are also being faced related to access to health care, detention, removal and so on.
