The Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs have just fined a labour export company for cheating hundreds of workers.

Director of Hue Tuan Investment Joint Stock Company, Vu Minh Tuan (sitting, in pink shirt) has fled after swindling money from many workers.

The Hue Tuan Investment Joint Stock Company was fined VND400 million (USD17,391) for violating the Law on Overseas Vietnamese Labour.

According to the ministry's investigation, Hue Tuan Investment Joint Stock Company had violated regulations when organising training and signing contracts with workers who registered at the company to work in Poland and Japan.

"After collecting money as fees, the company failed to send labours to work abroad and did not return the money," the investigation reported. "After that, the company's director, Vu Minh Tuan, refused to meet with the workers who wanted to get their money back. He also fled when the ministry's inspection team came to work with them on the complaints.

Following their investigation, the ministry decided to suspend the company's operations for 12 months and issued a fine of VND 400 million.

The company was also requested to pay all the money that they owed.

Earlier, over 200 workers have sent a total of VND 4 billion (USD173,973) to Hue Tuan as fees to register for working in Poland. Nearly 100 others have also registered and paid for fees to work in Japan since December 2008.

However, the company has failed to send the workers abroad to work on their contracts. When the worker wanted to get their money back, Tuan tried to delay multiple times. On September 15, 2020, he held a meeting with the workers to threaten them and even beat a female worker.
