Can migrant construction workers be cross-deployed to an individual or a non-construction firm that does construction work?
No, the migrant workers can only be deployed to work for another construction company. This company must also have prior employment records with the Work Pass Division. This is to prevent fly-by-night set-ups from gaining access to non-traditional source (NTS) workers and illegally profiteering from the supply of labour.
