New decree on foreign workers in Vietnam

The Government has published a new decree, modifying the old decree No. 34, on foreign workers in Vietnam.

The new decree states that the Department of Labor, Invalids and Social Affairs will coordinate with the police and relevant agencies to maintain a check of all legalities pertaining to foreigners working in projects in Vietnam.

The decree also stipulates that investors must write the terms of employment of foreigners and Vietnamese workers in the bidding documents, in which Vietnamese laborers must get top priority.

Companies must state clearly use of foreign workers in skills suitable for that work and must clearly define their work in related documents.
