Migrant workers in the country can call the Kuwait Society for Human Rights on the hotline 22215150 to seek assistance on their complaints or find answers to queries on labor laws, ministerial decisions and legal procedures, said Khalid Al-Ajmi, Chairman of the Kuwait Society for Human Rights.

Al-Ajmi added that the hotline service, which is available in both Arabic and English, is aimed at protecting the rights of migrant workers in Kuwait. He pointed out that the Society helps identify labor-related problems faced by migrant workers and contributes to the reduction of these problems by providing periodic recommendations to competent authorities, while working with the government to protect the rights of migrant workers.

Specialized legal experts will provide relevant and appropriate answers on the hotline to migrants caught up in legal issues said Al-Ajmi. He added that the hotline also provides responses to all inquiries of migrant workers about laws and procedures pertaining to labor rights.

The hotline, which has been in service since July 2017, is an initiative by the Kuwait Society for Human Rights, in collaboration with the Embassy of Netherlands in Kuwait.

The Society is currently implementing the second phase of the initiative, in collaboration with the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC), by following up on complaints, resolving them through legal means, monitoring them and issuing international reports.

During the first phase, the hotline received many complaints, including on issues related to “cancellation and transfer, passport recovery, claim for financial dues, residence permit cancellation, malicious absence and workplace injuries”, in addition to several other problems faced by migrant workers,” said Al-Ajmi.
