Four recruitment agencies have been shut down by the Ministry of Labour for fraud and are to be prosecuted, a senior officer from the ministry has revealed.
The official, however, declined to name the companies and where they were operating from.
The Ministry of Labour official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told Gulf News on Tuesday that the recruitment agencies had been closed and prosecuted for cheating people who were searching for work.
He warned other recruitment agencies operating in the country against violating the law by asking applicants to pay fees under any name or description.
”This is part of the ministry’s campaign against employment scams or what are called ‘job scams’ which seem to be a form of fraud in which some people posing as recruiters offer employment opportunities to job seekers who are on visit visas in the country and they ask them to pay money in advance,” said Mohammad Bin Dakhin, Director of governmental communication at the ministry.
