Two companies in Nha Trang City, located in the south-central Vietnamese province of Khanh Ha, have been fined for hiring 22 foreign workers without legitimate contracts.

The municipal People’s Committee confirmed to Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper on Saturday that they had imposed the penalty upon the two firms.

Accordingly, Viet Hung Service and Trade Company, situated in Phuoc Dong Commune, was slapped with a fine worth VND76.6 million ($3,293) for illegally hiring eight foreigners, as well as using products that were imported against regulations.

Viet Hung specializes in the sale of blankets, sheets, pillows, and mattresses.

Meanwhile, Ngoc Viet Ruby Company, which trades pearls, jewelry, and handicrafts in Vinh Nguyen Ward, was fined VND58.5 million ($2,515) for employing 14 foreign laborers without signing labor contracts and selling goods of unclear origin.

Local authorities have also suspended all business operations of the two firms for two months and confiscated their illegal products.

In late October 2018, the municipal administration also caught two out of five Chinese nationals working at a restaurant of Phong Nguyen Company without legitimate contracts.

According to previous statistics of the Khanh Hoa Department of Labor, War Invalids and Social Affairs, about 314 foreigners were found working illegally at 25 local businesses across the province in January-November of 2018.
