Lebanese State Will Now Punish Hiring Illegal Foreign Workers

The Lebanese Ministry of Labor announced Monday that it has developed a new plan to enforce laws against undocumented foreign workers, starting next week.

Based on the press conference, the plan consists of 13 new procedures to carry out laws surrounding the work of unauthorized individuals, which, as stated by the minister, has pressured Lebanese citizens to decide between “unemployment or migration.” He primarily emphasized the effects of the influx of Syrian refugees who have been working without permits in Lebanon.
