The Labour Market Regulatory Authority (LMRA) conducted three inspection campaigns on a number of shops and work sites.
LMRA noted that two joint inspection campaigns were conducted in the Muharraq Governorate in coordination with the Nationality, Passports and Residence Affairs (NPRA) and the Governorate’s respective Police Directorate, and the other campaign was undertaken in the Northern Governorates in coordination with the General Directorate of Crime Detection and Forensic Evidence of the Ministry of Interior.
LMRA also conducted an inspection campaign in the Capital Governorate by its enforcement sector.
The campaigns resulted in reporting several violations related to the Labour Market and Residency laws. The reported cases were referred for legal action.
LMRA stressed its commitment to report violations through an intensive inspection plan, in coordination with the relevant government entities. It renewed its call to all members of the society to support the efforts of government agencies in addressing illegal labour practices, by reporting violations via the electronic form on the authority’s website www.lmra.bh or by calling the authority’s call centre on 17506055.
