Illusory rights: Changes to the immigration rules will not protect the UK’s migrant domestic workers

The changes to the immigration rules laid before parliament on the 17th September 2015 will not, in the view of Kalayaan and Justice 4 Domestic Workers improve the desperate situation of migrant domestic workers in the UK.

Migrant Rights Network have published Kalayaan and J4DW’s joint statement which sets out our concerns that these changes will not protect against nor prevent abuse and exploitation and could in fact push trafficked workers into re exploitation.
