The Foreign Employment Bureau says that they will close down the Service Agreement Signing Unit which is in operation for those leaving for foreign employment.
The bureau states that the main unit for Signing Service Agreements in Thalahena and all units in operation at the District and Provincial Migrant Resource Centres will be closed down from on Saturday, October 31.
They went on to note that these agreements, which were signed off before an officer of the bureau, will now be done between the respective worker and the job agency.
However, according to the bureau, the service agreement law which is taken into consideration when leaving abroad, is still in force. This step is said to have been taken after taking into consideration the various inconveniences faced by the workers.
