Capital dept ‘suspends’ licenses of some labor law violating firms Data of illegal companies to be referred to PACI

KUWAIT CITY, Jan 14: Capital Labor Department has suspended the licenses of some companies and commercial and industrial institutions for violating labor laws, and referred their files to High Inspection Committee headed by Undersecretary Abdulmohsen Al-Mutairi.

The decision followed a sudden field campaign the sector initiated against commercial and industrial installations in the Capital, reports Al-Seyassah daily. The campaign was conducted by the inspection team tasked with assessing the needs of personnel headed by Engineer Mohammed Al-Ajmi to make sure of the extent at which employers are committed to the labor law of private sector and ministerial decisions issued in this domain.

Al-Ajmi said the inspection campaign has been launched in line with the directives of Undersecretary Abdulmohsen Al- Mutairi who sees the importance of controlling the labor market, illegal institutions, visa trading, and marginal workers, indicating the Assistant Undersecretary of labor affairs Jamal Al-Dousari closely follows up the campaign.

He indicated the files of some suspicious companies and institutions have been prepared to pave the way for inspectors to conduct raids, adding the headquarters of some companies had been closed although the campaign was conducted in the morning and the companies have registered a large number of laborers.

He added the same scenario was repeated by several other companies, while most of the shops in Souq Al-Mubarakiya and its companies are committed to law. He added that field inspection campaigns determine if the companies actually need the number of personnel registered in their names, and also make sure the locations of companies still exist on the same address.

He reiterated the campaign will be launched periodically to control negative phenomena in the labor market, particularly marginal workers. He urged citizens to comply with laws governing private sector. He reaffirmed the committee will suspend the files of companies whose headquarters are found closed during official working hours, indicating data of illegal companies will be referred to the Public Authority for Civil Information for necessary legal action.

He confirmed that law is applied on all without exception or oppression with the aim of protecting poor laborers and Kuwait’s reputation, given that some employers sadly cheat expatriate personnel by forcing them to pay for renewal of their residencies, and in some cases transfer or cancellation of work permits.
