Italy: Exploited labour: Migrant workers in Italy’s agricultural sector

Index Number: EUR 30/020/2012

The agricultural sector in Italy is heavily reliant on migrant workers. This report focuses on the violation of labour rights of migrant workers in the areas of Latina and Caserta. It documents widespread labour exploitation, including wages below minimum standards, arbitrary reductions, delays or non-payment of wages and long hours of work. Amnesty International demonstrates that Italian migration policy increases the vulnerability of migrant workers to labour exploitation and that Italian legislation offers them inadequate protection and limited access to justice.
