The issue of stranded migrant workers without jobs (despite them being brought in through legal channels) has been reported widely.

Recently, Human Resource Minister Steven Sim expressed his disapproval towards employers who refused to pay migrant workers. He said the ministry’s policy now is that any worker brought in would be paid, whether or not their work had started.

BFM talks to M Ramachelvam, co-chairperson of the Bar Council’s migrant, refugees and immigration affairs committee, about the need for better accountability from employers who bring in migrant workers.
