  1. Guideline on Dispute Resolution of Migrant Worker Grievances

    The Guideline is a reference for labour officials, Migrant Worker Resource Centre (MRC) staff, service providers, and stakeholders to use to support migrant workers through the dispute resolution process. The Dispute Resolution Guidelines are designed to deliver rights-based, gender responsive, transparent and timely access to justice for migrant workers. The Guidelines steer officials towards complaints resolution that ensure outcomes and remedies accord with Cambodian Labour Law, Sub Decrees, prakas, regulations, and international labour standards, and does not restrict access to other redress mechanisms. Family members of migrant workers can also begin the process, especially when the migrant worker is still overseas. Migrant workers, members of their families or their appointed representatives can all lodge complaints through the Dispute Resolution Process. Complaints can be lodged individually, or as part of a group claim. This document summarises key points in the Dispute Resolution process and provides information for potential complainants.

    The joint ILO-UN Women Safe and Fair Programme: Realizing women migrant workers’ rights and opportunities in the ASEAN region (part of the multi-year EU-UN Spotlight Initiative to Eliminate Violence Against Women and Girls) undertook a qualitative study involving potential and returned women migrant workers in four countries of origin in the ASEAN region – Cambodia, Indonesia, Myanmar, and the Philippines. The study covers intra-ASEAN labour migration, including women who intended to migrate to, or had just returned from, Malaysia, Singapore, or Thailand. The study provides insight into women migrant workers’ use of mobile phones, and how women migrant workers could access more accurate information throughout the migration process and increase their connections with peers.
