Public Authority for Manpower Saturday announced that officials from the Central Labor Inspection Department launched a surprise inspection tour of shops that were closed down in some shopping complexes in Jleeb Al-Shuyoukh area.
Deputy Director of Central Labor Inspection Department affiliated to the authority Sabah Al-Mutairi disclosed that the inspection led to detection of several facilities that were shut down but with hundreds of workers registered in their files. He explained that the inspection was aimed to control the labor market and block way for bogus companies, which has become a major avenue for violation of law.
Al-Mutairi said efforts exerted by the authority have been diverted towards figuring out the rate of compliance of employers to the provisions of law No. 6/2010 concerning the private sector labor. He stated that the shopping complexes were noted long ago during evening inspections, so the officials went in the morning to double check if they were actually transacting business or not.
