“The site … stores information and data and protects the confidentiality of the users. It also provides lawyers the task of responding to all of the workers’ inquiries and complaints.”

The platform aims to educate migrant workers in Kuwait on the rights guaranteed by the local laws and international covenants and treaties as well as to provide legal advice in a language appropriate to them, the report said.

It will have information on organisations and embassies that accept workers’ complaints and the procedures and type of assistance provided by them.

“The project aims at alleviating the violations suffered by migrant workers resulting mainly from the lack of awareness of their rights, especially domestic workers,” the daily said. (IANS)
