In­di­vid­ual la­bor dis­putes can be submitted on week­days

Kuwait Times - - LOCAL - By A Saleh

The Pub­lic Au­thor­ity for Man­power ad­justed the mech­a­nism of re­ceiv­ing in­di­vid­ual dis­putes over work per­mit trans­fers with the aim of fa­cil­i­tat­ing pro­ce­dures and sav­ing time. Ac­cord­ing to the old mech­a­nism, an in­di­vid­ual had to sub­mit his trans­ac­tion in per­son at the Hawally la­bor de­part­ment from 10 am till 12 noon on Satur­days, while ac­cord­ing to the new rule, in­di­vid­u­als can do so dur­ing all of­fi­cial work­ing days at the la­bor de­part­ment where the com­pany he/she wishes to trans­fer to is reg­is­tered. The fees will be paid at the same de­part­ment, so that the trans­ac­tion could be later - when the au­to­mated sys­tem starts work­ing - checked by the com­puter to make sure it matches all the needed con­di­tions stip­u­lated in min­is­te­rial de­ci­sion num­ber 57a/2016, such as pay­ing the new fees and hav­ing worked at least six months for the cur­rent spon­sor.

The Min­istry of Elec­tric­ity and Wa­ter (MEW) is cur­rently in the process of pre­par­ing the spec­i­fi­ca­tions of a ten­der to in­stall sur­veil­lance cam­eras at main power trans­form units with the aim of pre­vent­ing cable theft and pro­tect the power grid. In­formed sources said that ten­der will in­clude in­stalling cam­eras in around 700 units and that a spe­cial team was cur­rently work­ing on set­ting the spec­i­fi­ca­tions as well as at­tend­ing pre­sen­ta­tions made by lo­cal tele­com com­pa­nies about the tech­nolo­gies they could pro­vide in this re­gard.
