If there are instances where foreign workers are not being paid, the Government will approach the
employer to find out what is going on as it expects employers to do their part and pay their workers,
Education Minister Lawrence Wong said yesterday.
He was responding to a question on complaints over foreign workers who had not been paid or were
unable to return to work as they were without jobs.
