Migrant workers are being assured they are also protected under the employment laws of Barbados.

Minister of Labour Senator Dr. Esther Byer Suckoo gave this reassurance during an address to the National Advisory Committee on Occupational Safety and Health.

While acknowledging the committee had a significant role to play in promoting safety and health standards across the Barbadian workforce, Senator Byer Suckoo said it was often feared that the condition of migrant workers went under the radar.

During that meeting it was disclosed that the Ministry of Labour had begun collaborating with various stakeholders, to promote fairness and impartiality for all workers on the island.
