Bagraim, Mr M to ask the Minister of Labour
(a) What does her department mean by vulnerable workers and (b) can she provide a definition as used by her department? (b) can she provide a definition as used by her department?
Vulnerable workers are workers in ordinary employment who are less likely to have formal working arrangements and are therefore likely to lack decent working conditions, inadequate or no social security, no voice through a trade union and are characterised by inadequate earnings and difficult conditions of work. Often their fundamental workers’ rights are undermined or violated willy-nilly.
