LMRA to support Easy Exit campaign
Manama, June 23, 2010
Bahrain's Labour Market Regulatory Authority (LMRA) has pledged full support to the The Co-ordination Committee of Indian Associations (CCIA) campaign to utilise maximum benefits from Easy Exit plan for illegal workers.
The CCIA held a seminar on procedures and Easy Exit plan for illegal residents at the Karnataka Social Club, Manama, under the patronage of the Indian Embassy.
Present were Indian Ambassador Dr George Joseph, LMRA special project manager Ahmed Al Khabbas and Indian Community Relief Fund (ICRF) chairman John Iype.
The LMRA earlier announced that there would be varied fees per worker, with the idea to help many people to leave who will be dealt in a humanitarian way.
Each expatriate worker will be given a special Foreign Workers' Details Card provided by the LMRA, which will allow it to update the details and inform the workers if there was any complaint against them.
'The LMRA will consider individuals as per the case and condition,' said Mr Al Khabbas.
'If anybody has salary or benefits complaints with a sponsor, they don't need to wait till the court's decision. They can give power of attorney to advocates, relatives or friends, then use this Easy Exit opportunity.'
'The CCIA will distribute Foreign Worker's Details Card all over Bahrain through associations under the CCIA.'
