PUTRAJAYA: The Human Resources Ministry has warned against any third-party intervention to resolve problems in connection with applications for foreign workers facing employers in Malaysia.
The ministry, in a statement Saturday (Oct 8), said a third-party intervention will only complicate the application process and expose it to abuse, such as corruption or leakage of relevant information that could delay the application process.
"The ministry is aware and understands the problems on the ground and is capable of managing the issues facing employers, as well as implementing the best initiatives to solve the problems.
"Employers are advised to liaise with the ministry for any problems encountered in applying for foreign workers," it said.
The ministry added that it is always open to any input provided by any party in improving and simplifying the foreign worker application process.
Employers who wish to obtain more information can contact the ministry’s Migrant Worker Management Division (firstname.lastname@example.org) at 03-8885 2939/2940 or the Peninsular Malaysia Labour Department (email@example.com). - Bernama
