According to Ms. Tran Thi Van Ha, head of the department’s Information and Communications Division, licenses of the businesses have been revoked because of many reasons. Of them, 19 companies stopped operation, two were ineligible to change new licenses and seven broke regulations as per the law.
In 2017, four companies have seen license withdrawal for breaking the law. For instance, they did not directly recruit workers, let others use their licenses, illegally collected money from workers and took workers abroad without registering labor supply contracts.
Despite the license revocation, the companies are still responsible for conducting their duties in labor supply contracts they have signed with foreign partners and in valid contracts to take workers abroad.
In addition, they must report to the Overseas Labor Agency about the number of valid contracts, Vietnamese guest workers, those who have been chosen to work overseas and measures to conduct their responsibilities with workers in valid contracts.
