Category: Kuwait Local News

Acting Director General of the Public Authority for Manpower Ahmad Al-Mousa yesterday underlined that Kuwait is eager to safeguard foreign laborers’ rights. Mousa also revealed that the authority is planning to introduce a new mechanism for contracts with foreign laborers whether in Kuwait or in their home countries to ensure that only highly-skilled and well-qualified workers enter the Kuwait labor market.

The new mechanism would include setting up special centers for advance testing job candidates theoretically and practically, he said. In statements to reporters, Mousa said the authority has established a world-class integrated shelter for foreign workers. He pointed out that the center, which can accommodate up to 5,000 laborers, is meant to host foreign workers who have problems with their employers or sponsors until their disputes are settled or their financial and legal rights are fulfilled before they leave the country.

A plethora of social workers, psychiatrists, and lawyers are working at the center to take care of foreign laborers, he added. Mousa stated that several human rights organizations have visited the shelter and expressed admiration of it and of Kuwait’s efforts to help and care for foreign laborers.
