NO CONTRACT RENEWAL AFTER 60
The decision of the Ministry of Administrative Development, Labour and Social Affairs (MADLSA) to stop the renewal of the employment contract of expatriate workers aged 60 and above will be implemented soon, local Arabic daily Al Watan has reported.
According to a report, the decision stipulates the exit of the expatriate worker after reaching the age of 60 years and accordingly, his residency permit would not be renewed. "He would have to exit the country for good after receiving all his dues; the step aims at opening up the door for recruiting young talents who could serve the development plans of the country," the report said. Quoting sources, the daily said MADLSA is set to enforce the decision in both the private and the public sectors, "as it had been reviewed and studies conducted throughout the previous period".
