About 30 expatriate workers gathered outside the labor inspection department in Dajeej in an organized protest against their company-sponsored hostel conditions which they deemed unhealthy and unsuitable. According to workers, they were forced to squeeze into a two-bedroom apartment with only one bathroom. After a close examination of the complaints, department inspectors verified that the workers had a legitimate complaint and that the employer had violated the contract conditions.
Subsequently, the inspectors filed a report recommending the suspension of the employer’s file under code 31. On their part, the company admitted their violations and having broken the law requested a grace period to provide better living accommodations to the workers.
