Blacklisted: New Law Cracks Down on Companies Not Paying...

Employers who are suspected of purposely failing to pay migrant workers will face criminal action, as announced by a new regulation set to take effect on May 1. 

Promulgated months ago, the regulation aims to crack down on illegal, criminal acts from corporations looking to profit from struggling migrant workers. This new law has been hailed an important legal weapon against the persistent ailment of wage defaults.

Employers owing migrant workers wages will be required to pay them in accordance with the law, the regulation notes, clarifying the primary responsibility of employers in this regard.

Refusing to comply will add their company name and information on a blacklist, and will face restrictions such as acquiring government funding support and government procurement contracts, among others.
