In 2014, the ILO launched the "Fair Recruitment Initiative" to help prevent human trafficking, protect the rights of workers (including migrant workers) from abusive and fraudulent practices during the recruitment and placement process, reduce the cost of labour migration and enhance development gains. This course aims to (1) foster the sharing of promising national and international recruitment practices that meet internationally recognized human rights and labour standards, (2) enhance understanding among key actors of how to strengthen regulatory and enforcement mechanisms designed to address abusive and fraudulent recruitment practices, (3) promote the dissemination of fair business standards and practices and (4) mechanisms for the empowerment and protection of workers.

Description

Description

In today’s globalized economy, workers are increasingly looking beyond their national border in search of decent work and better livelihoods.

In addition, millions of workers migrate internally in search of decent work. Public and private employment agencies, when appropriately regulated, play an important role in the efficient and equitable functioning of labour markets by matching available jobs with suitably qualified workers.

However, concerns have been raised about the growing role of unscrupulous employment agencies, informal labour intermediaries and other operators acting outside the legal and regulatory framework.

In 2014 the ILO launched the Fair Recruitment Initiative to help prevent human trafficking, protect the rights of workers (including migrant workers) from abusive and fraudulent practices during the recruitment and placement process, reduce the cost of labour migration and enhance development gains.

This course on Establishing Fair Recruitment Processes aims to:

  • foster the sharing of promising national and international recruitment practices that meet internationally recognized human rights and labour standards;
  • enhance understanding among key actors of how to strengthen regulatory and enforcement mechanisms designed to address abusive and fraudulent recruitment practices;
  • promote the dissemination of fair business standards and practices and of mechanisms for the empowerment and protection of workers.
