Con­struc­tion com­pa­nies fail­ing refugees, says re­port

Arabian Business English - - THE BIG STORY -

Con­struc­tion com­pa­nies in Le­banon and Jor­dan are fail­ing to ad­e­quately pro­tect mi­rant work­ers and refugees, ac­cord­ing to a mon­i­tor­ing group’s re­port.

The study, from the UK-based Busi­ness and Hu­man Rights Re­source Cen­tre, found that many com­pa­nies have no clear pro­tec­tion poli­cies for refugee. As a re­sult, work­ers at dozens of com­pa­nies face ex­tremely low pay and dan­ger­ous work­ing con­di­tions, in ad­di­tion to un­scrupu­lous prac­tices from shady re­cruite­ment firms.
