Recommendation 1782 (2007)1
The situation of migrant workers in temporary employment agencies (TEAs)
1. The Parliamentary Assembly refers to its Resolution 1534 (2007) on the situation of migrant workers in temporary employment agencies (TEAs).
2. In this context the Assembly recommends that the Committee of Ministers ask the relevant intergovernmental committees to develop co-operation programmes with the International Labour Organization (ILO) and the European Union in order to:
2.1. research existing patterns of abusive practice in the transnational recruitment of temporary workers;
2.2. assist member states, particularly non- European Union member states, in developing and enforcing strategies to combat irregular recruitment and trafficking of workers;
2.3. assist member states, particularly non- European Union member states, to regulate labour recruitment and to apply efficient enforcement mechanisms (labour inspection, dissuasive sanctions, penalties including criminal prosecution);
2.4. assist member states in developing information campaigns on the rights of migrant workers and their working conditions.
