Transparency Maldives notes with concern the amendments to the Employment Act passed by the Parliament that excludes migrant workers from Ramadan bonus.
The amendment constitutes as discrimination on the basis of nationality and is in clear violation of the International Labour Organization (ILO) conventions and the rights enunciated by the Universal Declaration of the Human Rights (UDHR) to which Maldives is a signatory to.
All workers deserves the same level of amenities and employment benefits regardless of which country they are from.
