KUWAIT: High-ranking sources said the Manpower Public Authority (MPA) board, headed by Social Affairs and Labor Minister and State Minister for Planning and Development Hind Al-Subaih, is about to issue a ministerial decision on ‘VIP’ companies in the private sector that comply with law 6/2010 concerning work in the private sector.

Sources said the MPA board is finalizing the decision before its release, which will be in a few days, adding that all labor departments have collected the names of companies to be included on the VIP list, which will be the first companies to benefit from the advantages and facilities the decision provides. They said that there are certain rules in the decision based on which the companies will be chosen for the list, including complete compliance with the law and its rules, being of good repute, providing suitable jobs for workers on their files and compliance with their contracts with the workers.

They added that they should be committed to transferring employees’ salaries monthly, and should not have a file at the “disputes” department. If they do have such a file, the complaint must have been resolved in the company’s favor and all its workers should be working for it and not for others.

About the facilities the selected companies will enjoy, the sources said the companies will be treated ????similar to categories excluded from issuing work permits and small and medium size projects???????, like bringing workers from abroad according to area (one worker per five meters). They said the companies will be given greater facilities in processing transactions and expanding the use of the online portal, and process most transactions electronically without the need to go to the specialized department. – Al-Jarida
