KUWAIT CITY, Jan 30: Minister of Social Affairs and labor, the Minister of State for Planning and Development Affairs Hind Al-Sabeeh disclosed inspection and follow-up activities at the Public Authority for Manpower led to fresh detection of 60 companies that violated the purpose of their establishment; thereby raising the number of violating companies to 2770 within the past seven months, reports Al-Seyassah daily.
Al-Sabeeh explained the inspection campaign was meant to identify violating companies and organize the labor market, noting such companies contribute to spread marginal workers across the country while violating residency law, and constitute danger to the national security.
She affirmed that Public Authority for Manpower has directed the workers who are registered under the affected companies to quickly visit concerned authorities either in the Public Authority for Manpower or the Ministry of Interior to rectify their status. “This is necessary since the files of the affected companies have been suspended, and they have only two months to do so”. She stressed the names of violating companies will be published to keep the workers who are registered under them informed of the current status, because such companies only exist in form but non functional legally.
