Interns are a small group of people who are usually not employed by a company and are often forced to live in temporary accommodation, according to the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA).
Interns must have the right to work and access the facilities and services they need to stay alive and be productive, as well as health care and education, the office says.
Residents are another group who are often unable to work because of economic or cultural barriers.
Interns can be paid an hourly wage, but they are not allowed to take any holidays, leave the country or work outside their area of employment.
They must have a minimum wage of €1,200 a month and a minimum monthly salary of €900.
The intern’s employer is also responsible for ensuring their safety.
Residents must have access to the basic social services they require to be able to make their own decisions about their daily life and their lives as citizens.
Residents have the same rights as the interns, but do not have access even to health services.
Residents do not get the same protection as their employer.
They are still under the responsibility of their employers to pay their rent, maintain their home and provide for their daily living needs.
The rights of interns, residents and asylum seekers are often in conflict with each other, because of the difference in their living conditions and the fact that these groups do not enjoy the same level of social and economic benefits as the interns.
Internships are often advertised for people from a different country, and often recruit people who do not meet the minimum standards for social and occupational mobility.
Internages and residents are often employed at low-wage jobs and do not receive the same social benefits as their employers.
In some cases, these people are not able to return home and are left with no choice but to live with the hostel staff or with the people who work at the hostels, said Maria de Oliveira, the OCHA’s deputy coordinator for the Middle East.
This situation makes it difficult for residents to live independently, because they do not possess the same benefits as interns and interns have, she said.
The OCHA says that the migrant labour system, which relies on migrant labour from developing countries, is the main cause of the migrant crisis.
The migrants’ employment conditions are also severely affected by the lack of employment protection offered to them by the country they came from, such as the right of residence, which they are expected to provide in exchange for living in the host society, and the right not to be subjected to discrimination, the agency says.
The agency says that a total of 2.8 million people are estimated to be affected by migration within the EU and its territories, of whom 1.6 million are asylum seekers.
There are no figures available on the number of migrant workers in Germany.
The migrant workers are often exploited and abused by their employers and are vulnerable to exploitation by traffickers, says the OHA.
The Office for Migration and Refugees (OMAR) has set up a hotline for migrants in Germany to discuss their rights and concerns, as part of its response to the migrant crises.
The hotline provides information on legal, financial, labour and employment rights and remedies.
