COLOMBO (Daily Mirror) - The government will not alter its policies regarding the mandatory 28-day training for individuals departing for foreign employment as domestic workers, Labour and Foreign Employment Minister Manusha Nanayakkara said.

While attending the inauguration of a training centre and office, the minister said this training helps enhance job security and increase their salaries.

“Domestic workers who depart without prior training often face various challenges and earn lower salaries compared to their counterparts from other countries. Some foreign employment agencies are not pleased with the mandatory training requirement, as their primary focus is on maximizing profits,” the minister said.

"There was a time when foreign employment agencies sent Sri Lankans without any training solely for profit," he said.

"However, we have now made a decision not to send anyone without proper training. Some agencies may not be satisfied with this, but we will not alter this decision under any circumstances," the minister added.
