Irregular migrants employed as domestic workers exploited in EU

FRA: “Fear of deportation or dismissal deters victims of abuse or exploitation from going to court”

Irregular migrants employed as domestic workers in the EU are very vulnerable to exploitation, including cases of physical abuse, a new report by the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) has revealed.

The report shows that domestic work undertaken by employees is typically less regulated by legal standards and enforcement mechanisms (such as labour inspectorates) than other forms of employment.

It also shows that most irregular migrants in domestic work are women, who are vulnerable to multiple discrimination because of gender-based forms of violence, including sexual assault, as well as racial discrimination.

Summer is a time many plan to travel abroad for holidays. Before an immigrant living in Italy decides to leave the country for holidays, there are some important rules one must be aware of in order to avoid problems at the time of return to Italy.

Those with valid Permits of Stay

Those who have valid Permits of Stay can travel home and return to Italy at anytime.

They can in fact freely transit through or go for holidays in all the Schengen countries (Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain and Sweden).

Sanatoria: Those who didn’t comply with expulsion orders can be regularized

Ministry of Home Affairs has finally decided to regularise all illegal immigrants whose applications were rejected because they failed to comply with expulsion orders.

In 2009 the government introduced a law to regularize illegal domestic workers in Italy. It was very clear in the law that a past expulsion order was not supposed to be an obstacle to the worker’s regularization.

The law, however, didn’t clearly state that whoever had been arrested and condemned for failing to comply with an order to leave the national territory, would not be regularised, as foreseen by Immigration Law.

It states that if there is a risk of absconding, or if the person had applied for a legal stay but the application was dismissed as manifestly unfounded or fraudulent, or if the person is considered to pose a risk to public policy, public security or national security, forced repatriation might be preferred.
