Employers and their agents should not charge fees and illegitimate costs when recruiting because these fees might put workers at greater risk for human trafficking.
On May 22, 2019, The International Labour Organization (ILO) published its general principles and operational guidelines for fair recruitment and definition of recruitment fees and related costs. These principles include guidelines for employers and their agents on charging fees and costs in the recruitment process. Here is what employers need to know about the regulation of recruitment fees.
Purpose of Regulation
By regulating recruiting fees, the ILO wants to prevent recruiters and employers from charging for access to employment, which can lead to vulnerable situations for workers.
