In limbo: Many foreign workers, including those in the construction sector, are not sure of their status.

The 3+1 amnesty programme ends on Thursday and according to feedback, many employers are caught in a bind with the Immi­gra­tion Department and its vendors said to be hard-pressed coping with the surge in rehiring demand.
