The Malaysian Ministry of Human Resources (MoHR) and the Home Ministry will increase the enforcement activities and take strict actions against employers who fail to comply with labour and immigration laws along with any fraudulent activities conducted by employers during the relaxation programme on hiring migrant workers.
Human Resource Minister V. Sivakumar said employers and private employment agencies who breached laws and misused policies and directives by the government in regard to foreign workers applications and recruitments would be blacklisted.
“The above issues are being seriously looked into by the government and several steps are taken to address the problems.
“We also will assist foreign workers who suffered from employers who misused the relaxation programme through the Employers Exchange Programme and the new employer will be screened by the Department of Labour and Department of Immigration before the workers are handed to them,” he said in a statement. – The Malay Mail
