The Sri Lanka Foreign Employment Bureau (SLFEB) has decided to put forward a set of policies and conditions to the Middle Eastern countries when they recruit Sri Lankan maids, Additional General Manager L.K. Ruhunuge said.

He said that this decision will be announced to these countries through the Sri Lankan embassies and consulates located in these countries. 

Ruhunuge said countries will have to agree upon these policies and conditions before they employ maids. He also said that officials of the Middle Eastern countries will have to ensure the safety and well being of maids in the future.

The FEB also intends to pressurize international organizations dealing with migrant workers to take legal action when maids are subjected to torture and cruelty by their employers. (Daily Mirror online)

    Try imposing conditions?? When Sri Lanka begs from muslim countries can you expect SL to impose conditions?
    Let the SL Rep in the UN raise it in the international arena.

    i agree with Freeman comment , let us have a very strong policy like Phillipino.

    Take Philippines Housemaid agreement format for a good evaluation. The Philippines can, at any time, send their representatives to the place where their country women work and check about her status and satisfaction. Before starting of the jov They ask for a full details of the person going to employ their maids and get full job descriptions too. Actually here saudis are scared if any philippiny national goes and complains to their embassy as they take tough measures and will get huge amount of compensations for the maid, if she happened to have been victimized in any format.

    This has to be constitutioned, not just to be a policy. It is still better for Sri Lanka not to deploy domestic workers in the Arab Countries!!!!

    No need policies, STOP Sending maids
    however, can't stop because of poverty.... and no jobs in SL
