Complaints allowed unless contracted workers reach destinations in 90 days

If foreign employment agencies are delayed or unable to deliver workers to the contracted country and workplace within the 90 days specified after signing the contract, the workers can file a complaint with the office of the Myanmar Overseas Employment Agencies Federation (MOEAF).
On 29 August, the Union Minister for Labour informed workers who are going to work abroad that they can contact the MOEAF office and request assistance if they encounter any difficulties.
Workers are advised to only engage with officially licensed agencies. It has been warned that if they contact illegal agencies or fraudulent brokers, they may become victims of fraud and suffer financial losses.
As of 23 August, there are a total of 457 licensed foreign employment agencies and 150 Thai-licensed agencies in Myanmar. It is reported that foreign employment guidance courses for workers who will be working in foreign countries are being conducted at skill training schools in Yangon Region and Mandalay Region. — TWA/CT
