Working abroad safely: campaign and website (Estonia)

The Ministry of Social Affairs of Estonia launched a campaign that aims to raise the awareness of the public about the risks of working abroad and about the rights of employees that are recruited via a recruitment agency. As part of the campaign, a special website has been set up.

The website includes:

  • short videos to raise awareness among the public
  • a¬†checklist for employees on the risks of trafficking in human beings (THB) for labour exploitation when recruitment takes place via a recruitment agency
  • information for the public about legislation and their rights
  • links to relevant organisations such as the labour inspectorate.
