In a statement to the daily, Director of the Department for Recruiting Domestic Workers in the authority, Nasser Al-Mousawi indicated continuous coordination with the Ministry of Interior to prevent domestic workers from infiltrating the labor market in private sector, which according to Law No. 68/2015, are restricted to work in domestic sector only and not shops or commercial complexes. “In the event that any domestic worker is caught working for a different employer, the authority will refer him/her to the General Directorate of Residency Affairs and legal measures taken against the employer,” Al-Mousawi said, adding concerned authorities will continue monitoring the internet in search of those trading in domestic visas, and anyone caught in the act will be referred to the Cybercrime Department in the Interior Ministry.
