JobsMalaysia Service Is Free

KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 15 09  |  Bernama  

-- The online job registration and job matching system provided by the Human Resource Ministry through www.jobsmalaysia.gov.my is free as no service charge is imposed on users.

Manpower Department director-general Datuk Ismail Abdul Rahim said it was an offence for any officer to ask for payment from the service users for the application process to be expedited.

"If there is request for such payment, they should immediately report it to the police and any Manpower office in the states for action to be taken," he said when contacted by Bernama here today.

"The JobsMalaysia service is free. No officer can ask for payment from the public who are seeking employment (through the online service)," he said.

Ismail was asked to comment on a complaint by a service user in Serian, Sarawak who was asked by a man who claimed to be a Manpower Department officer, to pay RM500 to ease the process of getting a job.

He said while this was the first such complaint received, there were 80 Manpower offices nationwide for the public to lodge reports if such offence had been committed by its officers.

The JobsMalaysia system is one of three modules under the Electronic Labour Exchange which was launched on May 30, 2002.

The system enables people to seek suitable jobs and employers to look for suitable candidates to fill up the job vacancies in their companies.
