NO Authorisation or Endorsement by FMM to Appoint an Agent to Recruit Foreign Workers (GI/17/2012)

The Federation of Malaysian Manufacturers (FMM) refers to its earlier circular GI/43/2011 dated October 12, 2011, which alerted members that FMM had NOT and does NOT appoint OR authorise OR endorse the appointment of any recruitment agent and/or company to be its sole authorised representative. FMM’s position on this issue has NOT changed.

However, FMM had received information that several member companies in Selangor were approached via an e-mail on March 2, 2012 (E-Mail) by a recruitment company claiming to have been appointed by inter alia, FMM as the “…sole authorised representative for the purpose of assisting to obtain 400,000 quota to recruit manpower from Bangladesh and other foreign workers…”.

The email has attached the same letter of appointment dated January 21, 2011, which was issued under the Chartered Institute of Marketing Malaysia (CIM)’s letterhead and signed by the Chairman of FMM Selangor in his capacity as CIM President and “Chairman of the FMM”.

Members would recall that FMM in its October 2011 circular informed that the person, who was named in the letter of appointment, had been advised to withdraw the letter with immediate effect.

Following this recent incident, FMM has now instructed its solicitors to write to the said recruitment company to demand that it immediately retract the E-Mail and issue a clarification to the recipients of the E-Mail that it has not been appointed by FMM for the purpose of assisting to obtain foreign workers or for any other acts whatsoever.

The FMM Council is therefore reinforcing to members to take note and to understand clearly that FMM has NOT and does NOT appoint / authorise / endorse the appointment of any recruitment agent and/or company to be its sole authorised representative. 

FMM would greatly appreciate member companies’ assistance in alerting Ms Au Soo Keun, Company Secretary at FMM Head Office via email: ( ) or Tel: 03-62867200 if your company is approached, using the abovementioned claims.
