SUPPLEMENTARY LABOUR DIVISION

The Supplementary Labour Division (SLD) is the application office of the Supplementary Labour Scheme which allows employers with genuine difficulties in finding suitable staff locally to apply for importation of workers at technician level or below. However, to ensure the priority of local workers in employment, and to safeguard their salaries and benefits, employers must accord priority to fill available job vacancies with local workers. The major work of the SLD includes:

  • vetting employers' applications for importation of workers under the Supplementary Labour Scheme (SLS) ;
  • registering local job-seekers who are interested in the vacancies registered under the SLS; and
  • identifying suitable jobs for local job-seekers according to their academic qualifications, job skills, working experience, job expectations, etc. and arranging job interviews for them.
