Workshop on Temporary Migrant Workers Programs

 

 

22

This leads me to the second principle that I would like to propose, which is: That the 

movement of workers must be beneficial to interested parties in both source and destination 

countries. By “interested party” I mean the source and destination countries’ governments, 

workers, and employers. 

Clearly, every player has different interests, but ideally any approach to temporary migrant 

workers would balance these interests so that no one’s is more or less important than the others. 

Generally speaking, the governments of source countries are: 

•  Interested in ensuring their citizens are fairly treated when working abroad 

•  Looking at potential development dividends, and 

•  Conscious of the positive impact that remittances can have.  

The governments of destination countries are interested in ensuring that: 

•  Foreign nationals in their territory have a legal right to be in their country and are 

authorized to work 

•  The domestic labour market is protected  

•  The integrity of the workplace is maintained through basic employment and safety 

standards, and issues related to licensing and accreditation are properly addressed, and 

•  The presence of temporary foreign workers as contributes to a range of other economic, 

social and cultural goals.  

Workers may migrate for a variety of reasons, ranging from a labour surplus in their home 

country, to the search for better economic opportunities and higher wages, or simple curiosity about 

living and working abroad.  

Workers are generally interested in: 

•  Earning as much money as possible while they are abroad 

•  Learning new skills and gaining experience 

•  Avoiding exploitation  

•  Their own health and safety  

•  Ensuring that remittances enhance family welfare, especially that of their children. 

Employers are interested in: 

•  Ensuring that workers are qualified to carry out tasks 

•  That workers carry out tasks at minimum cost and  

•  Complying with requirements to remunerate workers; and 

•  Maintaining healthy and secure working environments. 

When benefits for these parties are optimized, the result is a “win” for all. 

Finally, as a third principle, I would suggest: That temporary migrant workers benefit from 

the same level of rights and protections as other workers in the jurisdiction where they are working

Recognizing that employment laws and standards vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, the fair and 

equitable treatment of temporary migrant workers with respect to wages, working conditions, health 

and safety is an important element of a sound temporary migrant workers program. 

Further, in the event that an intermediary (whether a recruiter, broker, or agent) has been 

involved, it is critical to prevent the exploitation of workers by these parties, who may act on behalf of
