Jan 7 2016
The Ministry of Labour and Human Resources has suspended the Global Recruitment Overseas Employment Agency for six months. The agent was found to have sent five Bhutanese to work in Russia without approval from the ministry.
However, the candidates have been deported back to Bhutan as the employment for the candidates were not guaranteed in Russia.
According to the ministry, the candidates have failed to consult and seek advice from the ministry and reconfirm employment in Russia prior to their departure.
The ministry has also asked the agent to refund the money failing to which a legal recourse would be taken.
