The government, following the dispute between Nepali workers and Bestinet Sdn Bhd, is formulating a government-to-government (G2G) approach, which includes axing middlemen involvement in the hiring process of foreign workers.
Human Resources (HR) Deputy Minister Datuk Mahfuz Omar (picture) said the government has initiated the discussion at the Cabinet level, which is still ongoing, to figure out and come up with the perfect mechanism.
“We are still in talks with the Cabinet to create the best G2G approach,” Mahfuz said at the launch of the Technology Court, a project to equip industrial courts with digital recording systems, in Kuala Lumpur (KL) yesterday.
Before “G2G Plus”, Malaysia used to employ foreign workers directly from the source countries.
According to HR Minister M Kulasegaran, the government is looking to revert back to the old system. Also, by removing the middlemen the chances of corruption are reduced.
