Helping Foreigners in the Czech Republic – fighting and preventing illegal employment practices, training responsible staff and engaging the general public
The first part of the project focuses on an improvement of work of the relevant state bodies when it comes to discovering and tackling illegal activities of employers towards their foreign employees and on an improvement of work of the relevant state institutions concerning a general employment policy for foreigners in the Czech Republic. This includes a creation of new methodological guidelines and an active work with foreigners in question and all relevant institutions with which they must deal when applying for the work permit and subsequently working in the Czech Republic.
The second and equally as crucial part of the project centres on prevention activities and is coordinated with the NGO called La Strada. These prevention activities can be divided into the following groups:
- Engaging experts in the fields of THB
- Engaging employers - companies, job recruitment agencies, HR staff etc.
- Primary prevention at schools
- Street work
- Engaging general public
The project started in 2010 and is still running.
