    The Employers Sanctions Directive was primarily enacted to dissuade employers from recruiting migrants in an irregular situation, but it also contains provisions to protect workers. It facilitates access to justice for exploited workers and sets out workers’ rights to claim back payment of outstanding wages. The directive also contains provisions to enhance the effectiveness of labour inspections. This report describes how the 25 Member States bound by the directive have been implementing its protective provisions, focusing on the impact these provisions have on migrant workers in an irregular situation who are victims of exploitation and other labour
    law violations.

    The stories of the domestic workers FRA interviewed for this paper reveal appalling working conditions and fundamental rights abuses in private homes across the EU. These stories indicate that, seven years on from FRA’s first report on domestic workers in 2011, little has changed in terms of the risks and experiences of severe labour exploitation domestic workers in the EU face.

    Workers are being severely exploited for their labour across the EU, and
    inspections are not effective at stopping this reality. Based on interviews with
    almost 240 workers – including non-EU citizens who came to the EU and
    EU nationals who moved to another EU country to work – a new FRA report
    outlines the problem and identifies ways to bolster inspections.

Severe labour exploitation is widespread across the European Union. While workplace inspections can help counter this phenomenon, they need to be strengthened to do so effectively. Based on interviews and focus group discussions with almost 240 exploited workers active in diverse economic sectors, this report provides important evidence on how unscrupulous employers manipulate and undermine inspections, and on what can be done to counteract such efforts.

L’exploitation de la main d’oeuvre n’est pas un phénomène isolé ou marginal. Toutefois,
en dépit de leur omniprésence dans la vie quotidienne, les formes graves d’exploitation
au travail et leurs effets préjudiciables sur les ressortissants des pays tiers et les citoyens
de l’UE - en tant que travailleurs, mais également en tant que consommateurs - n’ont pas
à ce jour suscité beaucoup d’intérêt de la part des chercheurs. Ce rapport
identifie les facteurs de risque qui contribuent à ce type d’exploitation et discute des
moyens d’améliorer la situation, tout en soulignant les défis auxquels sont confrontés les
institutions et les États membres de l’UE pour veiller à ce que le droit à des conditions de
travail décentes des travailleurs provenant de l’UE ou de pays tiers soit réellement appliqué.

Worker exploitation is not an isolated or marginal phenomenon. But despite its pervasiveness in everyday life, severe labour exploitation and its adverse effects on third-country nationals and EU citizens - as workers, but also as consumers - have to date not received much attention from researchers.

Des récits effrayants mettant en lumière dans quelle mesure une personne en situation irrégulière employée dans le secteur du travail domestique peut être privée de ses droits les plus fondamentaux ont récemment fait surface en Europe. Pour venir en aide à celles et ceux qui sont chargés de protéger ces droits, l’Agence des droits fondamentaux de l’Union européenne (FRA) a préparé cette recherche, qui est la première à analyser sur le terrain la situation à laquelle sont confrontés les migrants employés dans le secteur du travail domestique et présents dans l’Union européenne (UE) en situation irrégulière.

La traite des êtres humains pose un gros problème de nos jours, que ce soit au sein de l’Union européenne ou ailleurs. Même s’il n’existe pas de statistiques fiables, il est clair que, chaque année, un grand nombre de personnes, en majorité des femmes et des enfants, sont victimes de la traite à des fins d’exploitation sexuelle, d’exploitation du travail ou autres.
