Policy /Nepal / Foreign Employment Policy, 2012

This policy acknowledges foreign employment as one of the key sectors contributing to the national economy of Nepal, while also recognising that the increasing trend of foreign employment raises issues of fraud, trafficking, and work insecurity. As such, this mechanism endeavors to fix these potential negative impacts of foreign employment by requiring maximum corporate responsibility from businesses involved in foreign employment, as well as disseminating information among workers regarding their rights.
