Task force busts 38 illegal workers at Salmiya call center

The Public Authority for Manpower (PAM) spearheaded a coordinated campaign in Salmiya to address illegal labor practices and enforce labor market regulations.

This effort led to the capture of 38 workers found to be infringing residency rules.

The inspection team, comprising representatives from PAM, the Ministry of Interior, the Kuwait Municipality, and the Ministry of Commerce and Industry, focused their attention on a call center operating in Salmiya. After investigating, they found that all 38 workers held Article 22 (Joining Family) residency permits but were employed by the call center, which was not their registered sponsor.

The raid is part of an ongoing campaign by PAM and its partners to crack down on illegal labor practices, including marginal labor, employment with non-registered sponsors, and the activities of residency traders and fictitious companies. These practices have disrupted the labor market and contributed to demographic imbalances in Kuwait.

PAM has reiterated its dedication to upholding its responsibilities with transparency and enforcing Law No. 6 of 2010 on Work in the Private Sector, along with its implementing ministerial and administrative decisions, without exception.
