Kuwait manpower authority: keen to safeguard workers' rights

Sunday, February 18, 2018

Kuwait's Public Authority of Manpower (PAM) is properly playing its due role in protecting workers of different nationalities, the PAM's spokesman said Saturday.

The PAM is using legal means and specific measures, according to its competence and powers, in order to safeguard the rights of the private sector's workers, Aseel Al-Mezeid said in a press statement.

Al-Mezeid, who doubles as head of the PAM's public relations and media department, dismissed as "incredible" recent reports about the workers' rights, along with statements by some countries' officials on the conditions of their citizens in Kuwait.

The PAM is eager to protect the rights of workers, but it takes into account the necessity of avoiding possible negative effects on projects and governmental contracts, he added.

In this context, several meetings were held between the PAM and representatives of the embassies of the Philippines and India in order to resolve problems regarding some companies' failure to pay the salaries of their workers, the PAM's spokesman pointed out.
