The Byron Burgers Case:

Immigration Enforcement and Workers Rights

A panel discussion to take a closer look on the Byron Hamburgers case and the challenges it puts forward for trade unionists and others concerned with the rights of workers.

The Byron Burgers case had devastating consequences for the targeted workers and their families and raises important questions about the extent to which employers should be held to account when it comes to a duty of care towards its workers.

What actions need to be taken in solidarity with migrant workers who are endeavouring to resist exploitation?
