Cambodia urges firms to apply for foreign worker permits

Cambodia’s Ministry of Labour and Vocational Training has directed all companies or institutions that plan to hire foreign staff next year to apply for work permits between September 1 and November 30.

Heng Sour, the ministry’s spokesperson, told The Post yesterday that any employer who flouts the rules will face a penalty – which will be enforced as per Chapter 16 of the Labour Law.
