AMSSA Webinar: Legal Remedies for Victims of Labour Trafficking and Ethical Storytelling

October 20, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

The temporary conditions, lack of employment options combined with being tied to one employer (closed work permit) make migrant workers vulnerable to labour trafficking. In this webinar, presenters will discuss how to prevent and respond to labour trafficking as well as the legal remedies available to victims. At the same time, participants will learn about the importance of ethical storytelling recognizing that everyone has the right to decide how and when their stories are shared.
