The Public Authority for Manpower for Workforce Protection Sector Affairs officials celebrate International Workers’ Day at The Avenues

KUWAIT CITY, May 2: Dr. Fahd Al-Murad, Acting Deputy Director of the Public Authority for Manpower for Workforce Protection Sector Affairs, emphasized the significance of adhering to labor regulations during the Authority’s celebration of International Labor Day. Al-Murad stressed that failure by private sector employers to pay workers’ wages and transfer them to financial institutions monthly constitutes a serious violation, resulting in the suspension of the employer’s file and potential worker transfer to another employer.

During the event, which took place at the Avenues Mall and was organized in collaboration with the Chamber of Industry and Commerce and the General Union of Kuwaiti Workers, Al-Murad reiterated the Authority’s commitment to enforcing Article 57 of Law 6/2010 concerning private sector employment. This article governs wage payments and worker entitlements.

Al-Murad highlighted ongoing efforts to ensure compliance with labor laws, including developing inspection mechanisms to accommodate commercial expansion. The Authority aims to facilitate the submission of documents proving monthly wage transfers by employers and has expanded the use of automated systems for labor dispute resolution.

Furthermore, the Authority is actively engaged in promoting legal awareness among workers and employers to resolve disputes and maintain stability in the labor market. Aseel Al-Mazyad, Director of the Public Relations and Media Department, emphasized the Authority’s dedication to providing information in multiple languages and launching an integrated awareness campaign on social media platforms.

Representatives from civil society institutions, including Yahya Al-Dosari of the Workers Union and Hussein Al-Tarkait of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry, reaffirmed their commitment to protecting workers’ rights and fostering cooperation with the Authority.

Assistant Foreign Minister for Human Rights Affairs, Ambassador Sheikha Jawaher Al-Sabah, underscored Kuwait’s commitment to respecting workers’ rights and providing equitable employment opportunities for both national and expatriate workers. She highlighted the significant contribution of expatriate workers, who represent 75% of Kuwait’s total workforce, and reiterated Kuwait’s commitment to ensuring their well-being.

The celebration of International Labor Day served as a platform to underscore the importance of upholding labor laws and promoting fair working conditions in Kuwait.
