Find good work. Securing employment free from exploitation and discrimination

The brochure aims to inform Ukrainian refugees seeking employment in Germany about the dangers of labour exploitation and the best way of securing decent work.

When migrants, refugees or other displaced persons depend on finding work and do not speak the local language, they run the risk of being exploited while searching for employment and/or whilst being at work. The brochure provides information on the current minimum wage in Germany and the requirements of a legal contract. It explains why employment agencies are safer to get access to jobs than direct offers. Labour exploitation, human trafficking and forced labour may occur in situations of informality. The brochure also provides links to the federal employment agency, career counselling services and occupational safety and health regulations in Germany.

The brochure was produced by the ILO Berlin and Budapest offices, in collaboration with the International Organization for Migration (IOM) and the Federal German Employment Agency.
