WORC levies $1M fines with whistleblower help

| 06/04/2022 | 92 Comments
Acting WORC Director Jeremy Scott

(CNS): Officials from Workforce Opportunities and Residency Cayman (WORC) have published some details of the administrative fines it levied in 2019, 2020 and 2021 on rogue employers and employees. WORC said it doled out fines worth collectively CI$1,045,154 to companies and individuals for over 400 breaches of immigration laws, and has so far collected around $740,000 of that cash.

According to Labour Minister Chris Saunders, many of the fines were made possible by whistleblowers. They were doled out for a wide range of wrongdoing, such as failing to disclose where a Caymanian applicant had applied for a job and unlawful payment of a work permit, where employers charged workers for the cost of the permit.

“This government is sending a clear message that if people want to continue doing business in the Cayman Islands, they must play by the rules,” said Minister Saunders, who is responsible for WORC.

“These rules are not arbitrary. They are not voluntary. They are the law of the land. These laws are designed to ensure that Caymanians are given fair opportunity in their own country, which is no different than any other country around the world requiring their nationals to be given priority.”

He said that companies and individuals must ensure that they remain compliant with immigration laws to avoid being fined or prosecuted.

During the three-year period, WORC actually collected CI$740,256.60 of the total fines. Fees in the amount of CI$200,472.50 were transferred to the courts for further disposition, but CI$104,425 is probably uncollectable due to the inability of those involved to pay. In these instances, other avenues of redress are followed, officials said, including the revocation of the affected work permits.

There were several repeat offenders, WORC revealed. In 2019, two companies and four individuals had multiple offences filed against them. In 2020, one company and four individuals were fined for multiple offences. In 2021, three companies and eight individuals were in breach of the immigration laws on multiple occasions.

Saunders said that public “whistleblower” assistance had been vital as he thanked the many individuals who have used the compliance portal and reported suspected breaches. “We serve the public and also require the help of the public in identifying and prosecuting offenders,” he said.

WORC Acting Interim Director Jeremy Scott outlined new measures in place to improve the detection of breaches and enforcement of the relevant laws.

“I am also pleased to report that WORC is enhancing its Compliance Unit through a number of strategies, including a review of the administrative systems to verify if an offending company or individual has the financial means to pay a levied fine,” he said.

Saunders added that if companies or individuals are unable to pay, the matter will be referred to the director of public prosecutions (DPP) for review and potential court charges.

Scott said WORC’s computer systems are being upgraded to ensure the timely notice of expired work permits, which will be provided to the Compliance Unit for follow-up and enforcement. To complement these measures, a high-risk registry for repeat offenders is being set up, which will be closely monitored,

Saunders said that as well as monitoring and sanctioning repeat offenders, government will be rewarding employers who follow the “letter and spirit” of the law when they hire train and advance Caymanians. He explained that this would be accomplished through a new accreditation system based on their past and ongoing human resource practices.

“Although we are focusing strongly on compliance, enforcement and redress, we are also keen to give credit where it is due,” the minister said.

According to the information released by WORC, the fined offences over the three year period include:

  • Failing to disclose a Caymanian applicant;
  • Employing a person without a work permit;
  • Making a false representation;
  • Overstaying;
  • Causing a person to overstay;
  • Being employed or working outside of the terms of a work permit;
  • Failing to answer truthfully;
  • Unlawful payment of a work permit; and
  • Possession of a forged document.

    I’m betting none of the offenders are in the financial service industry or their slimy recruitment firms. Government made a deal a long time ago to allow these industries to blatantly abuse the regulations and they appear to be immune from scrutiny . Thanks for ditch digging jobs PPM and PACT. Glad those regs were enforced when you were in the industry Roy.

      When Cayman drank the Jim Bodden Kool-Aid it decided, for better or for worse, to join the international business community, and in doing so of necessity exposed its labour market to comparison with those in place elsewhere: in order to remain competitive, it was necessary to show a comparable level of qualifications and experience with other jurisdictions, otherwise business would go elsewhere.

      However, the standard of public academic and vocational education in Cayman has not kept pace with that in major jurisdictions overseas, with the result that there is a disconnect between the requirements of many businesses and the qualifications and experience of many locals applying for jobs. Accordingly, you are left with an oversupply of willing applicants but an undersupply of applicants at a level sufficient to maintain the business at a competitive standard of service.

      When compared with another population centre of comparable size (say 20-25,000 local nationals of of working age) in, say, the US or UK, the proportion of Caymanians (a) employed at all and (b) employed in senior or professional roles almost certainly substantially exceeds the average. That might suggest that there isn’t a major pool of untapped talent which is somehow being ignored, and although it is not to say that the numbers cannot improve further: the current Gov analysis of “there are x jobs, and there are y unemployed Caymanians, therefore there should be jobs for all those Caymanians is stupidly crude.

      It’s not so much that anyone is lying, more that (wilfully or otherwise) the rhetoric fails to look at what is being demanded and what is being supplied in the labour market, at least in relation to financial services.

        The only Kool aid here is coming from you….financial services was established to provide business for Cayman AND its people. At no point was it ever considered that this opened that industry job market to global competition…the rules and regulations developed over the years were to insure Caymanians had preferential treatment in their own country….this is the same as any country in the world. So quit spouting your bull shit and start complying with the rules fo the country that welcomed your business.

        • Realist says:

          Jobs are not earned by blackmail. You must win them in open competition. What you assert is simply wrong. For example:

          “the rules and regulations developed over the years were to insure Caymanians had preferential treatment in their own country….this is the same as any country in the world. So quit spouting your bull shit”

          Four points:

          1. Your English is poor, so you are not good enough for a professional services role yourself. The word you intended to use was “ensure” not “insure”. I would not hire you based on your current skills, not matter how loudly you complain. No decent employer will.

          2. If you genuinely believe that people given “preferential treatment” will ever be respected, you badly misunderstand how international business works. Anyone who is in a role where they potentially benefitted from preferential treatment will never be respected. They will be considered a bottom tier ‘diversity hire’ who is only there to make up numbers. This is what clients from the US, Hong Kong and UK will think, and so they will not give you business. On Cayman, employers will pretend to respect you, because they have to, but potential clients do not need to indulge in any such charade. You are being misled about the efficacy of your preferred policies.

          3. You incorrectly assert that “this is the same as any country in the world”. It is not: many countries, including the US, Hong Kong and UK have extremely flexible labour laws for highly qualified and experienced professionals. Why? Because despite populations sizes in the millions, they are unable to provide sufficient high calibre individuals to fill employers’ needs. They recognise this: you, apparently, do not.

          4. You complained, “So quit spouting your bull shit”. First, your resort to abusive language betrays the weakness of your position, and second, “bullsh#t” is usually written in English as a single word. Again, you demonstrate your unsuitability for high profile international work.

      Affirmative action and redistribution will never change anything. No one ever became successful from pity, scrounging and handouts.

      There is only one proven route to success: young people must graduate from high school, get a job, and get married before having children – and do so in that order. Such people are far less likely to be in poverty and far more likely to have a solid footing in the middle class later in life. This path to adulthood has been dubbed the “success sequence.”

      In Cayman’s case, that also means that aspiring young professionals must be hard working and academically successful enough to secure places in top UK and US universities, and then fight with UK and UK peers for jobs in top firms. Then – having achieved their position on their merits – they can return to Cayman and international clients will happily flock to them. Until then, people will be tainted with the suspicion that they are merely “diversity hires”, recruited just to keep WORC quiet. International clients will not spent a cent on such people.

        The affirmative action you referred to is in EVERY country in the world….all have immigration regulations designed significantly to provide their citizens with a certain standard of life and security of employment. No one has the open borders you are referring to. And YES it has worked here as shown by many past and present Caymanian business leaders…but this citizen preference no longer exists due to weak recent governments (significantly Alden and his PPM but followed by the impotent PACT) and the rhetoric of incompetent industry leaders. Complying with our well developed rules will not change our competitive ability but will provide our people with a priority in opportunity in this important sector in their own country…as it was always intended.

    What a load of rubbish. If Caymanians got out into the world and proved tgey can actually do thry might be considered. Cayman has opened up to a Global market taking business globalky, so it can hardly complain when more skilled and experienced people come to do the jobs. You only have to look at the Civil Service to know how crap Cayman employees are. Get rid of the entitled attitude, actually do some work and collectively you might improve the generally held view you are lazy as a workforce.

What happened with the employer who brought the Honduran carpenters in only to tell them he had no work but had gotten the permits at a lesser category of worker so he could pay a lower work permit fee? He was related to an extremely high placed member of the elected goverment but never heard any more about that case. Why aren’t WORC checking the various job sites to catch offenders instead of just waiting for “whistle blowers”? This just seems some more political posturing by Honorable Saunders.

    Hey WORC,

    Here’s an idea to get some money from WORC…charge the fees prescribed in the regulations.

    For those of you who don’t know, a CI$25 fee is prescribed by the Immigration (Transition)(Work Permit) Regulations, 2020 for registering a job post/advert on JobsCayman.

    As of today, 6 April 2022, there are currently 161 pages of job adverts, with 5 job adverts listed per page. As of the time of writing this email, there are a total of 805 live job adverts on JobsCayman.

    If the CI$25 fee was charged, the department would have collected an additional CI$20,125 in fees for the job adverts listed on JobsCayman at the time of writing this comment. JobsCayman has been live for nearly 2 years.

    After FOI requests and maladministration complaints, where I requested copies of Cabinet Directives, amendment regulations or something that allowed WORC to legally waive or suspend these fees, I received correspondence that stated that there was an “executive decision not to activate the payment requirement” until the majority of problems with the JobsCayman system were ironed out.

    Imagine if all government departments illegally waived charges and fees for all the government systems and programmes that didn’t work?

    However, faced with the stonewalling from the government, being ignored by the entire PACT government (Saunders, if you’re reading this comment, I emailed you multiple times for the last three years about these issues), the lackadaisical and shoddy investigation conducted by Office of the Ombudsman (guess who was involved with this maladministration complaint at that office?) and the other entities that are supposed to uphold our rights and the laws on this nightmarish island, I leave this here so at the least the public will be aware of the corruption that exists within every molecule of the Cayman Islands.

    I feel like if I lived anywhere else and reported these issues, there would be jail time for all those involved. But here, people get promoted. Where did the last acting director of WORC go? Failed up to a better position?

      You mean like this from an employee at a company that is a supposed ‘expert’ in immigration services?



      Saunders, Scott and crew, when are you going to do something about recruitment firms, staffed by ex-bartenders, ex-dive instructors, nepotism hires and other non-qualified people practising immigration law?

      Also, when will anyone deal with companies filled with blindingly white expats gatekeeping all the jobs? Why is this still happening in 2022?

      Caymanians, PMCs, RERC holders boycott these recruitment firms. When you apply for any of those roles, you are participating in a farce.

      You are simply listed as an unqualified local applicant on the TWP application for a recruiter who has been here for six months and misses their friend.

      Don’t believe me…? Immigration/WORC and the government does not like the masses to know their rights (better to keep them dumb to so they keep voting in women beaters and criminals).

      But, you can submit a FOI request to immigration/WORC to see what a company/recruitment firm/employer stated about you if you believe that a work permit was submitted for the position you applied for. You will not believe what people are saying about you.

      Or, sometimes, you’re shit outta luck as can be seen from the links above because a job in Cayman is being done by someone living aforeign.

        Which is where making the work permit process so difficult and so expensive is actually counter productive – just drives those jobs elsewhere. Expect a lot more of this going forward as Covid has demonstrated just how easy remote working is in certain knowledge based professsions, and has become part of normal working practice. Once people no longer come into an office to work, other than time zone there is very little to differ between them doing that work here or in another country.

            • Commercial reality says:

              You don’t understand: affirmative action does not work. If you are good enough for the job, you will get it. If you do not, it is because you were not good enough. No one owes you a job. There are millions of jobs overseas which “could be done in Cayman”. Would you like to complain about those, too? Why not?

              Caymanians are being badly misled about how the modern world works. International business does not need Cayman; Cayman needs international business. By making it harder and harder to jump through hoops to hire qualified and experienced professionals, you simply make Cayman less competitive. We can work elsewhere, where people are grateful for the money we bring in. We don’t need you.

              Caymanians already have two *massive* advantages over non-Caymanians:

              1. Work permits cost $$$$. Therefore, if we can hire a Caymanian for the job at no cost, we will.

              2. Work permits take months, because WORC is incompetent. Therefore, if we can hire a Caymanian for the job far faster, we will.

              If, despite those two immense advantages, you still are not being hired, it is because you are not good enough.

              There are, at most, 35,000 native Caymanians. Even assuming that the standard of education is identical to that in the US and UK, that still means that Caymanians are competing with a US population of 330 million and a UK population of 67 million. Cayman can not produce enough people will the aptitude, qualifications, experience and inclination to fill the number of financial services sector roles which currently fund the island’s economy. That may be a bitter truth to swallow, but it is true.

              US, UK, Hong Kong and other professionals overseas will not hire Caymanians who have been given their jobs as ‘diversity hires’ through WORC affirmative action. Such people will forever be looked down upon, and will never progress.

              The only hope for Caymanians is to be competitive: achieve high grades at school, fight your way into a place at a top US or US university, then earn a place – on merit – in a US or UK accountancy firm or similar – and then, once you have the same qualifications and experience as all of the other professionals on Cayman, come back and reap the rewards. Petulantly whinging that you have not been given everything on a plate will *never* succeed: you are being lied to by politicians who are playing to you sense of entitlement and misunderstanding about how the world really works.

              Grow up, or become like Bermuda.

      @7:56 – how is that any form of abuse? WORC cannot force a business to hire a Caymanian. There is no provision for this in law. The most that WORC can do is to refuse a work permit on the grounds that their is an able and willing Caymanian to fill the post. However, they cannot force the company to hire that, or any other, Caymanian.

      As for working remotely, if I hire a person living in the UK to do work for my company in the Cayman Islands how is that a abusing Caymanians or the law? The Cayman Islands have no jurisdiction over anyone but the Cayman Islands.

      What everyone seems to be overlooking is the fact that the majority of our Caymanian children graduating from the government schools are receiving a sub-par education and are simply not competitive with students from the private schools.

      That fact coupled with an entitled attitude and a weak work ethic is what needs to be addressed now. What good is an 80M school if the students aren’t receiving an excellent education?

    They should have a similar system setup for those that apply for government jobs.

      All those charges were under the previous government.
      I wonder if our UDP government will be as diligent , unless it will impact their re election chances.

    Good attempt at scratching the surface. More meaningful penalties are needed.

    Why are the names of the offenders not public?

    30 pieces of silver. That’s all that is. It in no way compensates for the havoc wrought on the Caymanian people by a decade of nonchalance as to enforcement and compliance. Why does a business that lied as to Caymanian applicants even still have a Trade and Business license?

      Lying as to whether a Caymanian applied, especially where the Caymanian had the potential to fill the position, should result in prison time. It is incredibly damaging to this society. It has been tolerated for too long and is very dangerous for us all. Right now, it is a cost of doing business that too many unscrupulous employers are willing to bear.

      6.42pm Ha Ha!, but how many of these businesses are Caymanian?.

      • Anonymous says:

        That may partly depends on whether someone who paid a bribe to gain an illegal status grant and then falsely pretends to hold 60% of the shares in exchange for a fixed annual fee is a Caymanian business owner?

      Happy to see Jeremy as Acting Director. I realize it’s a very difficult job but if anyone can sort it out, he can. Aside from being knowledgeable and experienced, he manages to create an atmosphere where people really want to work with and for him. Keep the momentum…
