Bahrain cracks down on unlicensed recruitment agencies

  • Business

Bahrain has mounted a crackdown on illegal recruitment agencies for domestic workers and booked 24 of them, according to a media report.

Police in coordination with the governmental Labour Market Regulatory Authority (LMRA) started legal procedures against 24 offices providing part-time domestic workers without licences, the chief of the General Directorate of Criminal Investigations and Forensic Science said, according to the Bahraini newspaper Al Bilad.

Sixty-one illegal female domestic workers were also arrested in the clampdown, the official added without further details.

Last month, Bahrain’s labour regulator announced resuming the recruitment of domestic workers and demanded authorised recruitment agencies to put in place stringent health precautions.

At the time, the LMRA has warned against dealing with unauthorised recruitment agencies or hiring part-time domestic workers, citing health and security concerns.
