New info centre at SLBFE
A state-of-the-art, 24 hour migrant worker information centre would
be opened at the Sri Lanka Bureau of Foreign Employment (SLBFE) head
office at Battaramulla tomorrow.
The centre would cater to the needs of local foreign job aspirants
and those already employed abroad. It would also provide relevant
information to recruitment agents and family members of migrant workers.
The centre which has a well trained staff would also strive to
resolve disputes which occur between migrant workers and their employers
by way of negotiation, the SLBFE said.
It would provide comprehensive details to information seekers on all
aspects related to foreign employment, including new vista's, legal
validity of the job agent, the maximum charge the recruitment agent can
levy, terms of contract etc. Prime Minister D.M.Jayaratne, Foreign
Employment Promotions and Welfare Minister Dilan Perera, SLBFE Chairman
