by Administrator

MONROVIA, LIBERIA-The Labor Ministry has nullified the issuance and renewal of Alien Work Permits to more than sixty illegal migrant workers.

The Ministry also imposed fines on the employment entities violating the Labor Laws of Liberia.

According to a release issued on Tuesday,  May 21, 2024, Labor Minister Cllr. Cooper Kruah, announced the action following the discovery of persistent issuance of Alien Work Permits by some unscrupulous employment entities across the Country.

The affected employment entities include Vinay Building Material Store in Johnsonville, Uptown Community, Hot Pot Incorporated on the Japan Freeway, Fortune Trading Center, and Saiful Business Center in Buchanan.

The release also quotes Minister Kruah as saying the affected illegal migrant workers and their employment entities have violated Section Four (4) B of the Ministry’s 2019 Revised Regulation 17, which calls for preferential treatment for Liberians at workplaces.

The fines range from US $1,000 to US $10,000 and must be paid into the Government’s revenue within a 48-hours or face tougher penalties.
