Government reject calls to end in-country switching for Domestic visa migrants
Following a report by a Home Office commissioned report, undertaken by barrister James Ewins, the government have rejected key findings from that report that suggested that Domestic workers should be able to move another employer whilst in the country.
The government argued that the current position of things exposed abuses experienced by thousands of domestic workers brought in by wealthy Gulf families. Claiming that they were exposed to conditions of slavery and abuse.
James Brokenshire, speaking to MPs argued that if domestic workers were allowed to change jobs whilst in the country, they will be less likely to report cases of inhumane abuse, they will simply look for another employer. Allowing the employer to look for yet another domestic worker to abuse.
The government have instead moved for additional protection for domestic staff allowing them an ‘escape route’.
