Transfers to be cancelled if not finalized within a month

KUWAIT: The Public Manpower Authority recently issued some decisions to organize the local labor market, including cancelling visa transfers if workers do not complete the needed procedures within a month.

A directive circulated by the manpower authority to various labor departments explained that employees on open-ended contracts working for monthly payments have to respect a three-month resignation notice period, and a one-month notice period by other workers.

The authority also explained that upon employers’ approval, workers could pay instead of working during the notice period, and if employers refuse, workers would have to prove this at the labor department relations unit. — Al-Anbaa
