Toronto, Canada – April 22, 2021 – Karibu Solutions Inc. is a technology company specializing in developing products to meet the growing needs of migrant workers and their employers in international markets.
Karibu also provides solutions specifically for employers to make the hiring and employment process for migrant workers easier. Their solutions for employers include a marketplace for recruiting, engaging with, interviewing, hiring, and signing employment contracts, payroll, and remittances for migrant workers.
Lack of a government inspection on recruiters’ operations, closed contracts to a specific employer, and insufficient information for temporary workers create the conditions for labor abuse and human trafficking in Canada.
Over 164 million migrant workers globally are vulnerable to being forced into exploitative labor contracts. A lack of visibility and oversight of the terms has resulted in dangerous and illegal hiring practices. That is… until now.
During a recent interview, Terry Knight, CEO & Founder of Karibu, made these comments, “Our mission is to protect migrant workers when they travel and work abroad while also providing employers the tools they need to recruit, support and retain migrant workers throughout the employment lifecycle. We help employers save time and money by facilitating the administration and maintenance of hiring migrant workers.”
Migrant workers face many challenges:
- Contract violations
- Abuse and exploitation
- Unsafe working conditions
- Lack of access to health care
- Unaware of their rights
Karibu has developed a mobile app for migrant workers that provides access to:
- Digital identification to mitigate against human trafficking.
- Online negotiation and signing of employment contracts.
- Virtual Healthcare.
- Translation – in-app.
- Issue Management tool so employees can report human rights or employment issues.
- Information about legal rights is provided.
