The U.N. is expected to issue a report this week detailing the cover letters used by employers, government agencies, and nonprofits to hide the identities of employees who are eligible for healthcare benefits, according to a report from the Associated Press.
The report comes on the heels of a U.K. investigation into the cover letter process, which led to the resignation of the U.KS prime minister, Theresa May.
U.SAHS report outlines a series of recommendations to improve cover letters for U.NAIDS, the United Nations Agency for the Promotion of Human Rights in Africa, and Human Rights Watch.
The UNAIDS report says there is “a significant need for improvements in the cover-letter system in Africa and around the world.”
Among the recommendations in the UNAIDs report is for organizations to include a “cover letter” in the official forms they send to employees.
The AP reports that the USAHS, a U-shaped report that examines how governments, organizations, and the private sector treat international humanitarian law, will include recommendations for how governments and organizations should improve their policies on the use of cover letters.
The cover letter is the only formal form of communication a government official uses to get around the law, and there are few other ways to make your case in writing to an employer or to the government, said the AP.
