KATHMANDU: The General Federation of Trade Union (GFONT) has recommended the government to strictly implement the provision obligating employers to bear all the costs involved in course of foreign employment.

Making public a study report on the evaluation of manpower company services amidst a program on Tuesday, GEFONT recommended the government to fully implement the provision that the employers should provide enrollment fee and expenses and take ahead with judicious enrollment process.

Around 98 percent of respondents out of a total of 1,593 respondents of the study said they have paid high enrollment fees. They are forced to pay enrollment fees of Rs 100,000 on an average, the study revealed. Less than two percent of the respondents said that they do not need to pay any enrollment fee and costs in course of foreign employment. The prevailing provision obliges the employers to bear all the expenses involved in course of the enrollment of workers in foreign employment of late.

It may be noted that the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed with destination countries includes a provision that obligates employers to bear all the expenses involved in the enrollment of workers. In the bilateral labor pact signed with the countries, including Jordan, Malaysia, United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Mauritius, the provision obliges employers to bear all costs involved in foreign employment.
