Kav LaOved - Worker's Hotline

Kav LaOved - Worker's Hotline

Kav LaOved aspires to prevent abuse and exploitation of workers in Israel, especially those from marginalized communities, by raising awareness about Israeli labor law, demanding fair employment terms and conditions, and addressing both individual cases and greater phenomena of violations of workers' rights in Israel.

Kav LaOved is one of the leading NGOs directly working for the protection of Arab workers' rights. The Kav LaOved Nazareth office provides information about labor law to Arab workers, legal consultation and representation, research about persistent discrimination against Arab workers in the Israeli labor market, and more. Kav LaOved employs proven and effective tools, such as informational materials in Arabic, workshops, media campaigns, social media, and employer/employee mediation to prevent and address violations of workers' rights.

In March 2013, Kav LaOved will begin implementation of a new three year project, funded by the European Commission, to improve Arab women's status in the labor market and social and economic conditions, with a special focus on enforcing the minimum wage law. Working women from the Arab community are most often employed in secondary schemes of the labor market, mainly in subcontracted, temporary and hourly labor, resulting in low pay, poor working conditions, and vulnerability to exploitation and abuse. The project will be implemented with partners Kayan Feminist Organization, Itach-Maaki - Women Lawyers for Social Justice, and the Law Rights Clinic of Tel Aviv University.
