CIVIL LITIGATION for migrant workers is a relatively new field, particularly in Singapore and Hong Kong, where JWB currently works. The often high barriers migrant workers encounter in using the courts mean that many issues specific to labour exploitation have never been considered in the civil context, making it difficult to predict what remedies may be possible for victims, particularly those who must bring suit from abroad.
In partnership with law firms, law faculty, and legal fellows, JWB is conducting original strategic research to address the legal questions affecting migrant workers.
