While workers ostensibly had several options to address complaints of labor and recruitment violations and to get compensation, the process most often used--arbitration by Bangladesh Association of International Recruiting Agencies (BAIRA)--did not provide sufficient financial compensation and rarely addressed the illegal activities of some recruitment agencies, all of which are BAIRA members.
The government continued to allow BAIRA to set fees, license individual agencies, certify workers for overseas labor, and handle most complaints of expatriate laborers, while not exercising adequate oversight over this consortium of labor recruiters to ensure their practices do not facilitate debt bondage of Bangladeshi workers abroad.
