HA NOI (VNS) — The labour, invalids and social affairs ministry's Overseas Labour Management Department has warned people about frauds involved in sending people to Saudi Arabia to work as domestic helps.
The warning follows reports received from families of victims in Tay Ninh, Nghe An, Tuyen Quang and Ha Tinh provinces.
Some of the frauds posed as labour export companies to lure those wanted to work aboard. They refused to give signed labour contracts to the victims, saying that the companies' directors were travelling on business and would sign the contracts as soon as they returned.
The Overseas Labour Management Department recommended that people should study and understand the working and living conditions as well as Islamic customs before deciding to work in Saudi Arabia.
They have also been asked to sign labour contracts with companies that have been given labour supply licences by the department.
The contracts they sign must have the signatures of the company directors and should be stamped. — VNS
