AMMAN, JORDAN (ILO News) The ILO has launched an e-learning programme for Syrian refugees in Jordan that explains their rights and responsibilities under the country’s labour law.
The online programme is part of on-going efforts by the ILO to help formalise the work of Syrian refugees in Jordan. It outlines the benefits of working legally through obtaining work permits, as well as the procedures needed to obtain them.
The ILO’s Regional Director for Arab States Ruba Jaradat participated in a high-level panel on jobs and economic opportunities during the Helsinki Conference on Supporting Syrians and the Region from 23-24 January, at which the UN appealed for over $4.6 billion to help Syrians and host communities.
