New bill to combat exploitation of undocumented workers

A new Employment Permits Bill aims to tackle the exploitation of undocumented workers in Ireland.

The legislation ensures access to legal redress for undocumented workers, so they can take a case in the civil courts against exploitative employers for back wages and compensation.

The bill is being welcomed by the Migrant Rights Centre, which has said it also makes special provisions for work permits for care workers.
