The International Labour Organisation has ranked Fiji among the worst five countries on workers' rights.

In a survey of 32 countries, the United Nations body ranked Fiji alongside Cambodia, Ethiopia, Argentina and Peru as being "the most serious and urgent cases regarding freedom of association".

Fiji was criticised for blocking an ILO investigation of allegations of assault and harassment against trade union leaders and members.

The ILO has called on the Fiji authorities to let their investigator back into the country.
