KUWAIT CITY, Jan 15: Khaled Al-Anazi, the head of the Private Sector Workers Union said a private company engaged in oil services supporting Kuwait Oil Company will face a 2,000 dinar fine for delaying the payment of salaries to national workers on specified dates.
Al-Anazi emphasized that the penalty will still be applied even if the company settles its dues, expressing regret over the non-compliance of many private sector companies with national employment rates.
In a statement to Al-Seyassah, Al-Anazi revealed that the Union plans to launch an electronic platform in the upcoming period. This platform will facilitate applications for permanent and part-time job opportunities for citizens, students, and retirees.
It will include a section for submitting complaints regarding workers in the private sector. Al-Anazi highlighted that these complaints will be thoroughly verified and monitored with the relevant authorities until resolution.
Al-Anazi mentioned that the number of national workers in the private sector recently decreased to about 64 thousand from the previous 70 thousand. He attributed this decline to private companies’ failure to comply with laws safeguarding national workers in the private sector.
He emphasized the Union’s significant role in disbursing national labor support to workers in joint operations contractor contracts in the divided region. This was achieved in collaboration with the Minister of Interior, Sheikh Talal Al-Khaled.
Furthermore, Al-Anazi noted that the Union is currently coordinating a conference on job opportunities scheduled for March in collaboration with the Public Authority for Manpower.
