新聞稿: 工人索償金額見上升   外傭主要問題仍未改善

新聞稿 (二零一七年四月五日) 傳媒查詢: 總經理 Cynthia Abdon-Tellez  電話編號:25238264、97409406 工人索償金額見上升   外傭主要問題仍未改善 「外勞事工中心」 (下稱MFMW ) 是一個為處於困境中的外籍家庭傭工提供緊急援助的非政府組織,致力爲香港30多萬外籍家庭傭工提供教育和就外傭政策進行倡議。機構發布的「2016年服務報告」中揭示,在2016年,外籍家務傭工因過度收費及無償義務勞動而向中介索償的金額大幅增加。然而, 影響外傭工作及生活的主要問題至今仍然沒有改善。 根據MFMW的數據顯示,外籍家務傭工的索償金額比去年上升了三成六,同時,多於八成(85%)的有關金額屬成功索償,等同多於三百萬港元。 報告亦顯示,觀乎MFMW服務的5,038受助者中, 長工時、缺乏私人空間、休息日及假期仍然是許多外傭面對的問題。 另外,報告中亦提到食物供應不足的情況則顯得越催嚴重。 中介侵犯勞工權益及非法行爲 外籍家務傭工成功收回的索償金額,有些是來自向中介機構的非法及侵犯勞工權利的做法索償。MFMW 在過去或處理中的案件中,亦收到有關中介欺詐和非法招募的投訴。當中亦涉及一些曾被媒體報導而惡名昭彰的中介公司 。 例如,Mike’s Secretarial Services 、Emry’s、FindStaff和Yan Yee 等。 在向MFMW求助的外傭當中,一半人(51%)自行透露了招聘機構的各種非法行為,包括非法收費,過度費用和欺詐性貸款。其中,只有少於半成人(4%) 被收取的金額是符合香港的合法中介費用規定(相當於最低允許工資的一成)。在2016的服務報告中,受助人向我們透露了其中九十(90)個招聘機構過度收費的行為 。其中23個機構,收取超過一萬五千港元,比去年的同一項數據增加了約一成(9%)。 按我們從過去一年處理的個案顯示,當中47%的受助人被中介機構收取5,001港元至10,000港元不等的金額。同時,高達21%的受助人被中介機構收取超過15,000港元的費用 。 我們應該注意的是,過度收取中介費用與欺詐性貸款的相互關係。 外籍家務傭工往往因支付過度收取的費而被騙提取貸款,因而造成這惡性的循環。
