In recent years there has been a significant turning point in employment conditions of contract workers and awareness of their rights. If this report would have been written ten years ago, it would have reflected a much worse situation. A variety of changes in the labor market have resulted in an improvement in the status of contract workers in Israel. At the same time, the number of contract workers is increasing and potentially harmful employment still threatens most of them.
In this interim report we provide a summary review and a breakdown of complaints by contract workers to Kav LaOved during 2013-2014. The main purpose of this document is not to just show the diversity of these violations but mainly to try to characterize this harmful behavior with the hope that a clearer understanding of these violations will enable law enforcement authorities to deal with them more successfully.
