Labour inspection: Women migrant workers in ASEAN

This Policy Brief looks at labour inspection in ASEAN in relation to women migrant workers, making recommendations to policy makers, development partners, employers, workers’ organisations, and civil society on the initiatives needed to ensure the implementation of labour standards for women migrant workers. In seeking to promote and protect the rights of women migrant workers in ASEAN, a strong and effective labour inspectorate is required to ensure that working conditions are in accordance with minimum national standards and are equally applied for men and women, migrant and national workers. Labour inspections are a vital tool for preventing and combatting violations of human rights committed against migrants in the workplace.
