Parliament approves proposed bill on domestic workers
June 18, 2015, 9:06 am

The National Assembly on Wednesday approved, in a first reading, two proposed bills on domestic workers and founding closed joint stock companies to recruit them. The first proposal seeks a legislation on domestic workers, since the current legislative provisions do not offer due protection of their rights, though they form a considerable quota of foreign labor in Kuwait, the parliamentary Financial and Economic Affairs Committee said in a report.

The second, it added, aims to legalize recruitment of foreign domestic workers, defining the conditions to be comprised on their contracts. The proposal is likely to help promote Kuwait's status with the concerned international labor organizations that have requested amending the present system, to safeguard workers' rights against certain practices.
