Under-30 hires ban cancellation tied to education, medical sector demands
June 2, 2018, 7:51 am

Minister of Social Affairs and Labor and State Minister for Economic Affairs Hind Al-Sabeeh has added the recommendation of the technical office of Parliament’s Replacement Committee for reviewing the private sector labor law to the list of recommendations to be studied, reports Al-Rai daily.

Meanwhile, Minister Al-Sabeeh disclosed that the decision to suspend the import of highly qualified expatriates less than 30 years old was withdrawn due to demands of both educational and medical sectors for urgent need of expatriates of certain specializations.

Furthermore, she stressed that the merger of Public Authority for Manpower and Manpower and Government Restructuring Program (MGRP) is ongoing based on the prepared plan.

In addition, a reliable source from Public Authority for Manpower revealed that the reason for suspending the import of highly qualified expatriates less than 30 years old was aimed at hiring experienced and efficient employees who are 30 years old and above.

Also, the technical office of Parliament’s Replacement Committee prepared a study for encouraging citizens to join private sector for work. The study includes amending the private sector labor law especially the clauses related to contracting and end of service for making jobs in the private sector more safe and stable.

CBB refuses blood donations from some Bedouns
The Central Blood Bank (CBB) has refused blood donations from a number of Bedoun residents who had responded to requests on social media for helping a number of children suffering from blood cancer, reports Al-Shahed daily. The reason for the refusal of the blood bank was the expiry of the security cards issued to them by the Central System for Remedying Status of Illegal Residents.

The blood bank’s decision was met with condemnation, as many citizens and residents could not help but wonder why the blood bank will deny people from performing their humanitarian duty and responding to urgent calls to save cancer patients, especially since the whole donation process does not require official papers except for some tests for ensuring the individual is fit to donate.

They wondered what the link is between Bedoun residents having a valid security card and blood donation which will contribute to ensuring a good quantity of blood supply to help save the lives of patients who might be in dire need of rare blood platelets.
