CAIRO, Sept 24: Kuwait’s Public Authority for Manpower (PAM) affirmed on Thursday that workers’ rights are protected by law, and focuses on the importance of the exporting countries to abide by their rules. This came in a statement by the Acting Director General of the Public Authority of Manpower Dr. Mubarak Al-Azmi on the sidelines of the 48th conference for Arab Labor in Cairo.
Al-Azmi noted that the authority asked its counterpart in Egypt to verify the integrity of the contracts that precede the recruitment process to Kuwait in coordination with the concerned authorities in the country and to abide by Kuwaiti legislation and regulations “to reduce any violations that end with deporting workers.” The authority called on the Egyptian Ministry of Labor to focus on the role of recruitment agencies and the role of the government in monitoring the procedures “to ensure the protection of workers’ rights before they travel and to ensure the health and safety of the recruits, he pointed out.
