Migrants rights guides

The Law Centre (NI), together with the Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission, has produced a range of guides for migrant workers.

The guides explain the different rights and entitlements you have while working and living in Northern Ireland. They also contain advice about what to do if you feel your rights are not being recognised.

All the guides are available from the Law Centre NI website.
