情义之家新报告:外籍女佣仍面对强迫劳动问题

新加坡客工组织情义之家(HOME)与香港反人口走私组织Liberty Shared合作,于本月15日发布了一份报告,揭露在我国的外籍女佣面对三大问题:过度劳动、面对言语羞辱和薪资纠纷。 根据国际劳工组织定义,若以任何惩罚相威胁,强迫任何人从事违反其意愿的一切劳动或服务且不能随意离职,即是强迫劳动,其中包括限制劳工行动‘克扣工资、恐吓和心理压迫等等。 雇主为女佣申请工作准证,有责任确保女佣遵守准证条例,包括婚姻限制、强制医疗检查并确保女佣不涉及任何非法活动,雇主还得缴交五千元的保证金。 报告指出,正因为这些条例,反而鼓励雇主严厉地监控女佣的生活起居,有者甚至面对暴力、禁食、被辱骂和过度劳动的威胁。 对此报告呼吁人力部应把就业法令(EA)对基本劳动权利,例如工时、病假、加班等规定和保障,延伸保障外籍女佣群体。 女佣Indah被雇主克扣四万元工资 在报告发布会上,情义之家也引用数个真实面对强迫劳动的女佣个案。例如在本地工作十年的Indah(化名),被雇主克扣超过四万元工资,也不被允许使用手机,几乎七年没和家人联系。 另一女佣Ella每日工作17小时,每月只有一日休假,即使向雇主申诉手痛,仍被迫每日用手清洗雇主一家的衣物,还遭受言语霸凌。 Myaing则遭雇主长期言语霸凌、曾被禁食和被令睡在朱家阳台。 Rosa则每日工作19小时无休,她不满工作环境要求转换,却被雇主威胁甚至禁止他离开家门。Rosa试图爬窗户逃走结果摔断腿。但是住院期间还要上手铐。警员甚至没告知他雇主是否又被调查,还对她企图自杀的行为发出严厉警告。 在一些个案中,人力部裁定女佣投诉无效,坚持要把女佣送返代理公司,结果遭索讨费用才能返回自己的国家。…

新柔捷运展延至九月底

我国交通部长许文远和马来西亚交通部长陆兆福,在今早的联合记者会上透露,两国签署新柔捷运(RTS)补充协议,将该计划展延至今年9月30日。 不过,马方需为此支付我国60万新元的延期费用。 许文远和陆兆福是在今早11时,于我国港务局大厦进行新柔捷运补充协议签署仪式。 许文远表示,马方展延计划以检讨新柔捷运项目的可行性和成本,而我国则会慎重考虑对方提出的建议。 他补充,展延计划将使得与此项目的陆路交通管理局承包商和竞标者受影响,而他们也十分关注项目的未来进展。而新加坡政府叫关注如何解决关卡拥挤的方案。 陆兆福:仍希望新柔地铁落实 至于马国交长陆兆福强调,上述支付费用并非一项赔偿,“在旧有协议并无可展延计划的条文,此次则是和新加坡基于友好精神达成共识。” 他表示,马国仍希望新柔捷运能落实,不过成本是该国的最大考量。 如果新柔捷运无法复工,将视为马国已终止该计划,也需赔偿予我国已投入的费用,约为6千600万新元。 在今年3月,马国已要求展延新柔捷运半年。马方需为该计划承担40亿令吉(约13亿3000万新元)费用,其余60巴仙费用则由我国承担。该捷运原定于2024年投入运作。 除了庞大的工程成本外,马方也面对包括征地赔偿等费用,无形中加重该国政府的成本负担。 此前,有消息指其中一地段涉及柔佛苏丹依布拉欣陛下名下土地,以致中央政府必须赔偿4亿9500万令吉;不过后来苏丹则回应若该地段确实用作发展,愿献出土地。…
