Egypt reviewing labor contracts from Kuwait to prevent fake contract crisis


KUWAIT CITY, Oct 27: The Egyptian Ministry of Manpower is currently reviewing labor contracts from Kuwait in a bid to prevent the recurrence of the marginal employment and fake contracts crisis, which surfaced at the height of the Corona pandemic; especially now that Kuwait reopened the application for all types of visas, reports Al-Qabas daily quoting a reliable source.

According to the source, there have been recommendations to scrutinize the employment contracts of Egyptians working in the private and government sectors in Kuwait; particularly the terms and conditions to ensure they are in line with international standards on labor contracting. The source pointed out the most important of these standards are wages, annual and weekly holidays, medical and social insurance policies, and allowances for those with dangerous and rare jobs.
