The Labour Market Regulatory Authority (LMRA), in coordination with government agencies, continues to intensify joint efforts to activate regulatory tools to address illegal practices in the labour market, to ensure justice and stability, enhance productive capacity, and address the phenomenon of irregular employment.
The Authority announced the implementation of four inspection campaigns, which resulted in the observation of a range of violations related to the provisions of a number of regulating laws, especially the LMRA Law and the Residence Law in Bahrain, noting that legal measures will be taken regarding the observed violations.
The LMRA pointed out that two inspection campaigns were carried out in Muharraq Governorate, the first was attended by the Nationality, Passports and Residence Affairs (NPRA) and the Governorate Police Directorate, while the second campaign was carried out in coordination with the Agriculture and Marine Resources Affairs at the Ministry of Municipalities Affairs and Agriculture and the Coast Guard Command.
The third campaign was implemented by the Authority in the Northern Governorate in partnership with the Nationality, Passports and Residence Affairs (NPRA) and the Governorate Police Directorate, while the fourth campaign was implemented in the Capital Governorate in coordination with the Verdicts Enforcement Department at the Ministry of Interior.
LMRA 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.gov.bh or by calling the authority’s call centre on 17506055.
