GEORGE TOWN (Dec 5): The Penang government has requested a one-year moratorium on fines against employers for having foreign workers staying in housing schemes.
State Housing, Local Government and Town and Country Planning Committee chairman Jagdeep Singh Deo (pictured) today said that the request was a temporary measure to provide shelter due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
He said that the state government had already planned to have workers’ dormitories for foreign workers even before the COVID-19 pandemic.
“So far we have six workers' dormitories approved and two of which have already been built, namely in Batu Maung and Bukit Minyak.
