Better pre & post-arrival orientation for workers, incl. A3/G5

DOL and DOS should implement strong pre- and post-arrival orientation of temporary workers, including those on the A3/G5 visa programs, that involves the input and participation of NGO advocates and workers

 

An in-person orientation should include worker rights in the US, worker rights in the industry and/or state they are working in, human trafficking, services and programs available to assist in the event of any violation. The orientation should be provided in the workers own language, without interpretation or monitoring by the employer or agents of the employer. The worker should receive materials that are easy to conceal (e.g., a pocket work hours record keeper with hotline and rights information). NGO advocates should be present, either in person or referenced through materials or referrals.
