What happens to employers who don't comply with Work Permit housing requirements?

If an employer fails to comply with housing requirements, it is considered a breach of the Work Permit condition to provide acceptable accommodation as well as a breach of the relevant agencies' regulations. This includes updating your foreign workers’ addressses.

The relevant agencies will take enforcement work in their respective areas. Any employer who violates this condition can be prosecuted under the Employment of Foreign Manpower Act. It will also be taken into consideration if the employer applies for subsequent Work Permits.
