A.L.T. Caporalato!

A.L.T. Caporalato!: Interventions for regular and safe employment in Italy seeks to prevent and contrast labour exploitation of migrant workers in major economic sector 

(agriculture, manufacturing, construction) Italy's central and nothern regions (Abruzzo, Emilia-Romagna, Lazio, Lombardia, Marche, Piemonte, Toscana, Veneto) by improving the effectiveness of labour inspections, enabling access to protections mechanisms for potential victims, and promoting coherent and coordinated interventions among relevant authorities.


Within the framework of the project A.L.T. Caporalato!, IOM focuses on three main areas:


Supporting the National Labour Inspectorate by providing cultural mediation services to mitigate language and cultural barriers, and consolidate trust between migrant workers and labour inspectors during inspections.


Building the capacities of both labour inspectors and cultural mediators on key topics such as immigration law, labour exploitation, protection mechanisms as well as trends and features on migration to promote a multicultural sensitivity.


Conducting awareness raising among migrant workers of labour rights, fair recruitment and labour practices, as well as protection mechanisms for potential victims of labour exploitation as provided for by the Italian law system.
