Recruitment Agency Regulations: Panel and Press conference

In coordination with allied organizations Catholic Relief Services, Jornaleros-SAFE, and Instituto de Estudios y Divulgación sobre Imigración (INEDIM), Global Workers Justice Alliance organized a day event to present the report “Reglamento de Agencias de Colocación de Trabajadores”, an analysis of the new recruitment agencies regulations in Mexico.

The first part of the event was a panel to discuss the challenges and violations workers suffer during the recruitment process. Along with Scalabrinianas: Misión para Migrantes y Refugiados, Centro de Derechos del Migrante, and ProDESC representatives, Cathleen Caron took part of this panel to present Global Workers Justice Alliance’s work, facts of the H2 visa program, and two fraud case studies to show how recruiters take advantage of workers applying to the temporary worker program.

In the second panel, Defender Network members Isabel Ramos and Cesar Alvarez participated with representatives of INEDIM and Servicio Jesuita a Migrantes. The panel discussed the impact of the reforms to Article 28 of the Federal Labor Law on the new recruitment agency regulation, as well as report findings and its impact on the recruitment process.
