KUWAIT: Sponsors are advised to refer to the Interior Ministry’s domestic help department to settle any dispute over their contracts with domestic helpers, and avoid leaving the helper at the recruitment office. This came in a statement the department released yesterday and in which it noted that it carried out several inspections of domestic help offices, resulting in the arrest of several violators, while some offices were cited for harboring runaway domestic helpers. The department said it will continue its campaigns to check unlicensed offices.
