Code of Honour between employers and LMRA, on the obligation not to use/employ irregular foreign workers, Read the Code of Honour.
The phenomenon of informal employment is one of the negative phenomena that faced the Labour market in the Kingdom of Bahrain for more than four decades as is the case in the other gulf markets which are almost similar to its causes and effects, even if it varied somewhat from country to country, it has, however, became a source of concern for all, and the most affected were the national Labour and owners of medium and small businesses, who depend on trade as a source of their livelihood, and therefore, its effects were reflected on the Bahraini society.
Combating this phenomenon in a serious manner is a must where, the Bahraini society cannot bear more troubles and difficulties created by this phenomenon, which requires concerted efforts of all concerned official and civil bodies, including employers and market traders to eliminate this phenomenon.
Perhaps the national campaign to address the phenomenon of informal employment adopted by the Labour Market Regulatory Authority to implement the Kingdoms' 2030 National Strategic Plan, blessed by the Crown Prince, His Royal Highness Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, which the Employers, represented by Bahrain Chamber of Commerce and Industry and Bahrain Society of Contractors, participate in the membership of the Supreme National Committee supervising this campaign, comes as an opportunity to set off the role of the Employers and their full and effective participation in the national campaign by having their members sign in this Code of Honour, whereby they undertake the obligation to implement the following items:
The first item:
Promote and support the activities of the national campaign to address the phenomenon of informal employment in the Kingdom of Bahrain, and reporting violators of the provisions of Law No. (19) for the year 2006, on the regulation of the labour market.
