Slave Labor Accusation for Law Firms In Australia

by admin on September 24, 2015

Australian law firms have been hit with “slave labor” accusations by taking students on long-term unpaid internships, and occasionally even charging for the legal training they offer, reports Sydney Morning Herald.

The accusation comes from a student group, who are fighting out against “predatory and exploitative business practices” and taking advantages of law students desperate for experience.

The group sent a strongly worded submission to the Productivity Commission’s inquiry into the workplace relations framework, arguing that firms are offering students and graduates unpaid work only, in place of what would previously have been paid.

Employment attorneys in Thailand Chaninat and Leeds are experts in labor law, both for Thai’s and foreigners working in Thailand.

Slave labor of a different kind has been in the news in Thailand recently with large US firms Costco and Nestle Purina both accused of selling fish sourced from companies apparently known to employ slave labor.
