KUWAIT CITY, July 19: Civil Service Commission (CSC) is currently studying some recommendations aimed at reforming and developing the main system of registration for jobs in the public sector, reports Al-Anba daily quoting sources.
They explained that some citizens who are on top of the employment waiting list are rejecting jobs in ministries and other state institutions, as the current system allows people in the waiting list to do so. However, this leads to many negative consequences.
These people are refusing jobs over and over again due to absence of limit in the number of refusals; this in turn takes away opportunities for other citizens in the list whose need for a job might be more urgent. It sometimes seems apparent that the applicants who refuse job opportunities over and over again are not really seeking a job.
The sources affirmed that, in consideration of the abovementioned situation, it has become necessary to reform the current system.
Meanwhile, Assistant Undersecretary for Financial and Administrative Affairs in the Civil Service Commission (CSC) Bader Al-Hamad recently issued a circular to employees exempted from the fingerprint attendance system including those occupying supervisory posts and those who have been in service for more than 25 years, instructing them to visit the Administrative Affairs Department to update and activate their data for the system, reports Al-Rai daily.
This circular is in line with the decision of the CSC to stop the exemption such that all employees, regardless of position and nature of job, are now required to register their attendance through the fingerprint system.
On the other hand, a source disclosed that CSC Chairperson Ahmad Al-Jassar has given authority to sign strategic foreign correspondence only to the undersecretary and assistant undersecretaries of the commission; while the directors of departments will sign routine letters and correspondence according to decree number 116/1992 on administrative organization.
