Jordan: The death of a factory worker leads to a debate on psychological violence in the workplace

Hamda, a forty-year-old worker at a textile factory in Azraq, died at her workplace from a brain haemorrhage after being humiliated, harassed, and threatened by her employer. The incident led to an outrage and was denounced by the TAMKEEN for Legal Aid and Human Rights. In a statement, the organisation called for improving working conditions in factories. TAMKEEN said that workers in these factories are often victims of violence and deprivation of their basic rights and that some of them are even victims of forced labour.
