Firms with illegal workers to be blacklisted

Tough new laws are being brought in to prevent companies from hiring illegal workers. Employers caught giving them jobs will be blacklisted and could face up to two years in jail and a fine of BD4,000.

Those sheltering illegal workers who have run away from their bosses will also be prosecuted, said Labour Minister Jameel Humaidan.

The latest figures show 50,000 expatriate workers are no longer working for their original employer.

“We have increased inspections through joint teams comprising Labour Market Regulatory Authority inspectors and policemen, but greedy people continue to just think about making money,” said Mr Humaidan.

“Unfortunately, some believe what they are doing is right and that’s why we are not able to contain the situation as it is, despite the numbers (of runaways) dropping.”

Mr Humaidan said the Legislation and Legal Opinion Commission was seeking to introduce a law that would bring labour accommodations under the Labour Ministry’s jurisdiction.

  14. Greetings!

    1. I am an expatriate, my contract will end this June 30, 2015. I submitted 3 months advance notice (March 30) of non-renewal. They accepted my resignation with an acceptance letter. If I apply to another employer, does my previous employer have the right not to release me? If the employer will not give the indemnity at the end of the contract, what should I do?

    2. My wife is also employed in the same company, her contract is two years but her visa is only one year. Her work is not the same as stipulated in the visa. The agency in the philippines told my wife that it will just be changed in Bahrain. Unfortunately, it was not changed. Now she resigned after one year by submitting 3 months advance notice and the company accepted through an acceptance letter. What is the irregularity made by the employer? Thank you so much

  27. Dear Sir,
    I never worked in Bahrain or entered through work permits except visiting very often on multiple visa while working in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. I have now left Saudi Arabia and joined one Bahraini based company. When they applied for employment visa, not been approved couple of times with the notification that I have a valid Bahraini visa. It’s very surprising for me as I never worked in Bahrain except visiting very often on multiple visa till the end of October 2015 ( Visa expired now). The legal status while tracking the visa through website shows ” Employment visa is not valid”. How can I correct this error.

  32. Dear Sir/Madam,
    How do I know wether the company has paid the penalty issued by LMRA, for making a employee come to office for work without providing a visa.
    While investigation the LMRA inspectors had said that they will send the Company the penalty and if the company pays it, there wouldn’t be any issue on the person also. How do I know they have been issued the fine? and there is no offence on the employee. Will the employee also be notified the same???

    • Dear Client,

      Regarding your Passport: Although this is out of LMRA’s jurisdiction, please note that the laws of Bahrain stipulate that retaining the employee passport is illegal. If the employee demands his passport back and the employer refuses to hand it over (in writing if possible), the employee should first contact his embassy and, secondly, raise an urgent case before the court of urgent matters at the Ministry of justice (diplomatic area).

  56. Dear sir/Ma’m
    I was recruited by a restaurant named as Tlcheri Paris Restaurant Employer’s no- 7449404 as Cook Assistant . My work visa no-7535625, Passport no-M4828778.,Personal no-:720470706.

    Contract period was for 1 year from ,jan2016 to jan,2017. But my employer lured me a good salary ,free accommodation and free food. Before departure for Bahrain i demanded employment contract but he assured that he will provide me after reaching there. When i reached there he ignored about my employment contract.
    Then he started to ask me to work for 12 to 14 hours per day and paid me 123Bahrain Dinar per month. Still I continued work with a hope for better situation. Just after 4 months i was detected with diabetes and it made me stunned with mental shock and went under treatment with Bahrain govt medical units and got
    free insulin and medicines.
    But by the end of september my diabetes became worse and wanted to come back home to India. I started to request and beg my passport to the employer
    he declined and threatened me to black list and claim financial damages. Anyway
    by the end of October i planned to come back to home. After flattering and begging the employer said ok you can go to home for 1 month but be back by 26th November ,2016. I got agreed and left Bahrain by 1st week of November.
    As soon as i reached home I contacted a Lawyer in my home state and he demanded my employment contract but i do not have that. I called the employer and told my lawyer asking employment contract. Then he started to threaten me to black list in GCC and alleged that i have stolen his money and ran away .It is fact that he booked the ticket himself and paid my October month salary.
    2 days back he has called me and said that my work permit he has cancelled and
    has black listed me in GCC record and has put more allegation against me in nearby police station.

    I want to know am i back listed by him ?? How i will fight against such dishonest
    employer who is recruiting guys from India and exploit like that and misuse black listing rules of GCC to spoil the career of innocent people.
    I seek your help in this regards and if i am found black listed i will fight to sue him in India and will have justice as he is also Indian.
    My biggest question is why these dishonest people are allowed to run the dirty business in Bahrain.
    with Regards
    Abdul Mannan

Now the tried to take me in their sponsorship then immigration department told them to bring old sponsor’s CR and CPR.
