Labor keen on eliminating bogus companies Decision to be issued to revitalize activities of co-ops

KUWAIT CITY, March 17: The Ministry of Social Affairs and Labor is keen on taking decisive steps to eliminate illegal companies, reports Al-Jarida daily quoting Minister of Social Affairs and Labor and State Minister for Planning and Development Affairs Hend Al-Subaih. Al-Subaih explained an employer, who does not engage in the commercial or industrial activity for which he obtained the license, will be referred to the concerned authorities for investigation although the expatriate workers are registered under his company. His file will be closed permanently and the General Immigration Department will be notified to take the necessary legal procedures to deport the expatriates registered under the file; while the Ministry of Commerce and Industry will cancel the license.

Al-Subaih also confirmed the formation of inspection teams to check commercial and industrial establishments in the private sector to take the necessary procedures against violators in order to rectify errors or loopholes in labor files. Meanwhile, the Assistant Undersecretary for Cooperative Affairs Salah Al-Rabah said the ministry will soon issue a decision to revitalize activities of cooperative societies, reports Al-Jaridah daily.

Al-Rabah revealed the decision contains several chapters, including the unified administrative organizational structure for cooperative societies. He explained the structure will include equal monthly salaries, holiday, appointments and other related administrative issues. He emphasized the decision will contain all cooperative activities in line with the new Cooperative Societies Law. He cited investments, job titles and facilities as part of the activities. He hopes the decision will be issued by early next month to replace decision number 195/2000 on the regulation of cooperative activities. He added the decision will address several issues like prices, elections, prerogatives of the management boards and penalties.
