The Minister of Social Affairs and Labor Hind Al-Subaih, said the introduction of unified contracts for the expatriate laborers will stipulate working hours, wages and other basic conditions of employment. Moreover, the new contacts will include special clauses and conditions to protect laborers’ rights.
Referring to the way that Egypt handled the problem of labor violations, she noted that names of violating companies were published in its official gazette. Minister Subaih suggested that Kuwait should consider such measures by listing companies found to be in violation of Kuwait’s labor law in its official gazette, Kuwait Today. She also added that there needed to be more coordination with labor exporting countries before visas could be opened again.
