MEF urges govt to allow HR Ministry to continue handling recruitment, management of foreign workers

PETALING JAYA: The Malaysian Employers Federation (MEF) urges the government to let the management and recruitment of foreign workers remain under the Human Resources Ministry.

In a statement Thursday (Dec 22), MEF said the government's decision that the recruitment of foreign workers, except form Indonesia, would be managed by the Home Ministry was a step backwards.

"With the decision to place the recruitment of foreign workers, except from Indonesia, the recruitment of foreign workers is once again becoming more challenging," MEF president Datuk Dr Syed Hussain Syed Husman said in the statement.
