Webinar on State Level Meeting on Migrant Labour – Madhya Pradesh

Human Rights Law Network conducted a zoom webinar on State Level Meeting on Migrant Labour – Madhya Pradesh. The crisis migrant workers are facing today, is an unprecedented national emergency during this global pandemic. After nearly two months of waiting to go home, with no jobs and money, many workers took it upon themselves and started walking back home covering hundreds of kms on foot Many still found themselves stranded with no hope of an early departure, without food and basic necessities. In spite of the immeasurable suffering of the entire labour force, many state governments went ahead and made substantial changes in their respective labour laws, adding to the workers' distress.


Keeping all this in mind, MP HRLN organised a state level meeting on “Labour Rights during COVID 19.” The meeting aimed to encapsulate the problems faced by workers all across the state of Madhya Pradesh and to capture and analyse the recent changes made in state laws.
