Any work done without consent is forced labour

"Any work done without consent is forced labour" was the message sent in a strong statement by Mme Asmaou Bah when addressing government and workers' representatives yesterday at the ILO Assembly Hall.

For us, it was important to be at the ILC because this year's main themes --transitioning from the informal to the formal economy and forced labour -- are at the heart of the hardships facing domestic workers. Migrant domestic workers find themselves vulnerable to all types of abuse, and negative legislation like the kafala sponsorship system prevalent in the Gulf countries, further increases that by depriving them from the possibility of leaving abusive employers and the host country.

Using the case of Guinee, she also spoke about the the necessity to address child labour to protect the children engaged in domestic work.
