In January 2021, the two year project Hidden at Work – Labour and sexual exploitation and harassment of women in the (private) work sphere started. This project is coordinated by FairWork and jointly implemented with LEFÖ IBF in Austria, La Strada Czech Republic and La Strada International.
Most European countries have legal provisions for victims of crime to claim compensation or to otherwise be compensated for material and non-material damages. However, even when the legal framework is in place, the rights of people who were victim of trafficking or other crime to actually seek and obtain compensation remains difficult or impossible to exercise in practice. Evidence shows that very few victims have the information and the means to seek compensation. Even fewer actually receive a compensation payment.
