The Labour Market Regulatory Authority (LMRA) and the Ministry of Interior are stepping up inspection campaigns against illegal practices to protect competitive, fair and stable labour market.

The campaigns resulted in reporting violations related to the Labour Market and Residency laws. The reported cases were referred for legal action.

LMRA conducted three joint inspection campaigns, the first was in the Northern Governorate in coordination with the Nationality, Passports and Residence Affairs (NPRA) and the Governorate’s respective Police Directorate.

LMRA also conducted a joint campaign in Muharraq in coordination with the Sentence enforcement directorate and the General Directorate of Crime Detection and Forensic Evidence of the Ministry of Interior.

The other campaign was undertaken in the Capital Governorate conducted by the LMRA Enforcement sector.

The Labour Market Regulatory Authority renewed its call on all members of the society to support the efforts of government agencies in addressing illegal labour practices by reporting violations via the electronic form on the authority’s website www.lmra.bh  or by calling the authority's call centre on 17506055.
