State Minister for Economy Affairs Maryam Al-Aqeel has emphasized dedicated efforts of the Public Authority for Manpower (PAM) in providing all kinds of protection and support to manpower in the country by dealing with challenges they face with their sponsors in various sectors, reports Al-Qabas.

In a statement, Al-Aqeel explained that PAM formed a specialized team in the department of domestic workers, which was transferred to the authority last April and distributed into five sections with a total of 34 employees in charge of following up cases related to domestic workers.

The sections consist of administrative support, domestic workers arbitration, inspection, and licensing, and they all perform 22 procedures aimed at protecting the rights of domestic workers and to provide them care, in addition to restoring the rights of employers in case an error occurs through the local recruitment bureaus.

Also, Al-Aqeel indicated “in a friendly agreement, the domestic workers department in cooperation with the admins of various social media platforms managed to bring down advertisements for domestic workers (Maids), such as those that advertised the ‘sale of maid’ or ‘transfer of maid’, in addition to constant follow up on social media and referring violators to the human trafficking department of Interior Ministry. “Kuwait returned a domestic worker to her country immediately it realized that she was underage.

The decision came after the concerned department learnt about it via a special British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) documentary. The department also continues to issue violation citations to domestic workers recruitment bureaus while suspending their licenses through the Interior Ministry and Manpower Public Authority”, she explained.

She revealed that 44 domestic workers recruitment bureaus had been suspended as of June, 2019, and that PAM is out to pursue violators in those bureaus and impose financial guarantee on the bureaus or employers or aggrieved domestic worker to reassure their respective rights. It also entails follow up of absconders and referring those refusing to work to the domestic workers shelter where their cases will be sorted prior to their deportation.
