The Issue

Due to its geographical location and economic strength, Malaysia is a popular destination country for women, men, and children from numerous countries to seek employment. It is currently estimated that there are approximately two million documented and more than two 23 million undocumented migrant workers in Malaysia. Those who are categorised as undocumented often enter Malaysia legally, but become undocumented later for various reasons. It is important to note that not all migrant workers are victims of trafficking, but many of them, including refugees, asylum seekers, and stateless persons, are vulnerable to trafficking. Unethical practices of recruitment agencies and employers subject migrant workers to disproportionately high recruitment fees, withholding of salary, debt bondage, confiscation of passports, excessive working hours, hazardous working conditions, physical abuse and humiliation, and other forms of human rights violations.
