Kuwait - Migrant workers allegedly deported for complaining (2011)

In August 45 Filipinas employed as beauticians in Kuwait ran away from their employer, whom they accused of illegal recruitment, unfair labour practices, and physical and sexual abuse. One of three workers reportedly deported from Kuwait due to their role in the protest said to media that they had been told by labour officials that they were not entitled to any assistance since they were not legitimate migrant workers. Officials investigating the incident merely stated that all but three decided to go back to work the next day.
