Legal Protection of Migrant Workers in the Agricultural Sector in Light of Jordanian Legislation and International Labor Standards


This study aims to examine the adequate application of rights and protections granted to migrant workers under Jordanian labor law and social security law in agricultural Sector. The author analyzed the applicable laws, regulations, and relevant literature related to migrant workers in Jordan, including various relevant legislations, court decisions, and legal precedents. Through critical analysis and comparison of various data from these secondary data sources, this work will identify the problems associated with this legislation and consequently provide different recommendations and conclusions. Contradictions between labor law and social security law, as well as the feasibility of implementation and enforcement, lead to a significant gap in the protection of migrant workers in the agricultural sector. The author calls for a more cautious approach and argues for the necessity of respecting the principles that necessitate workers’ rights. This study focused on the rights of migrant workers in the agricultural sector, deriving its authenticity and value from being the first and most recent work exploring this issue in light of recent amendments to labor law, social security law, and related legislations.
