KUWAIT CITY, July 8: Deputy Director General of Public Authority for Manpower Abdullah Al-Mutawtah affirmed that the authority will follow up workers who protest in demand for their rights, and will ensure they receive their wages and other entitlements.
However, Al-Mutawtah did not say anything to indicate the readiness of the authority to prevent the deportation of the concerned workers due to their demand for their rights. He made the above mentioned statement in reaction to the information circulating on social media that Ministry of Interior has deported some workers due to a protest they organized in Jleeb Al-Shuyoukh to demand for their salaries which their employer company had not paid.
Al-Mutawtah reiterated the authority is monitoring employers and will take legal actions against them to protect the rights of employees. He explained the authority is working in line with law No. 109/2013 that established it, as well as implementing the labor law No. 6/2010 and relevant decisions.
