Legislative Council (LegCo) member Yang Berhormat Nik Hafimi binti Abdul Haadii called on authorities to look into the job market during the second day of the 18th LegCo session yesterday, saying it must be fair to both locals and foreigners when it comes to employment.

“Laws covering both locals and foreigners can be improved,” said the LegCo member. She also suggested that lifelong training or minimum education be incorporated into the “working industry framework”.

The LegCo member called for an end-to-end digital administration process and reinforcing of the arbitration system in negotiation issues between employers and employees.

“I encourage the government to look into improving and updating the outdated policies and taking into account the current industrial ways and workforce professionally,” she said.

Meanwhile, Yang Berhormat Nik Hafimi showed full support for the proposal made by Special Advisor to His Majesty and Minister at the Prime Minister’s Office Yang Berhormat Pehin Orang Kaya Laila Setia Bakti Diraja Dato Laila Utama Haji Awang Isa bin Pehin Datu Perdana Manteri Dato Laila Utama Haji Awang Ibrahim in giving appreciation to His Majesty Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu’izzaddin Waddaulah Al-Marhum Sultan Haji Omar ‘Ali Saifuddien Sa’adul Khairi Waddien, Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam for delivering a titah and giving way for LegCo members to further enhance national development plans through ideas
