Rethink on rule for runaway workers

THE Shura Council will on Sunday revote on a new rule that would oblige expatriate runaway workers to buy their own tickets back home or have their relatives pay for their repatriation if they die in Bahrain. Under further amendments recommended by the chamber’s services committee, the cost of return will be shouldered by the Labour Market Regulatory Authority (LMRA) should the worker be found not to have money .
