Stop Hiring Illegal Immigrant (PATI)

The consequences of hiring a person who does not have a valid pass can be fined or imprisoned or both for each illegal immigrant (PATI) under his/ her employment. For each PATI under employment, a fine of not less than RM10, 000 but not more than RM50, 000 or imprisonment not exceeding 12 months or both will be imposed to the employer . In addition, any employer who hires more than 5 PATI at the same time is liable to imprisonment of not less than 6 months but not more than 5 years and is subject to whipping of not more than 6 strokes. 

Despite that, any person who allows any PATI to enter or stay in the premises where he has direct interest and control as a supervisor or manager will be fined not less than RM5, 000 but not more than RM30, 000 or imprisonment not exceeding 12 months or both for each PATI. Furthermore, a fine of not less than RM10, 000 but not exceeding 2 years or both for the second offence.  

In fact, the reasons why we urge you to stop hiring illegal immigrant (PATI) are more than just about fine or imprisonment. When the number of PATI is uncontrollable, social issue such as crime will occur due to the numbers of jobless PATI will increase and this definitely will bring negative influence to Malaysia.  Besides that, residential hygiene and poor facilities is another arising matter due to lack of knowledge in implementing the best foreign workers hostel management. Even worse, you might hire a terrorist who might harm the country safety!

Last but not least, every foreign worker with a valid visa will contribute annual GDP over RM18,750 by 2024 in Malaysia, but not PATI.  Foreign workers normally will work in 3D (Dirty, Dangerous & Difficult) sectors like construction, manufacturing, agriculture, plantation and service. But, PATI can choose to work anywhere they want. Definitely, PATI will bring negative influence to Malaysia job opportunities and social-economic status.

Last word before the end of the blog, stop hiring illegal immigrant (PATI)!  You can hire a foreign worker through a legal channel
