During the period 38 judicial verdicts were issued against visa traders in which some verdicts ordered the companies to pay fines of more than KD 90,000, at a rate of KD 1,000 per violating laborer, Minister of Social Affairs and Labor and State Minister for Economic Affairs Hind Al-Sabeeh informed.

Very good step by Ministry of Social Affairs & Labor. Hope MSA & L would take strict actions against the companies not paying salary and benefits of resigned employees waiting to go on exit. Many workers are waiting for more than 10 months without any income.

This has to resolved

Dear Ministry of social affairs & Labor ,
This unnecessary violating companies issue is going for past many years and this has to be a stop.. and bring a right track descions of company to issue visa OR To made a open visa for employee and open family visa .. For sure there will be a control in your MOI dept and the country will flourish its economic growth..
At present more then 1000 TO 1000 thousand expat families have left kuwait and 60% percent have gone to neighbouring GCC countries and 20% to their hometown and remaining 30% has migrated to either to UK , australia, new zealand or to the West .
Now since these labourers are gone they have replaced the locals and then actually behind the scene the burden of 4 people work is on that one expat workers who is helpless to speak of course with no increment and no overtime ... Over and above this expat is fully stressed out and depressed and cannot go to clinic now with increased fee just for panadol and pracatamol .and unnecessary here from egyptians and syrian doctors
Please resolve all this violation company once and for all and let them have A OPEN VISA DIRECTLY APPLYING FROM THE MINISTRY '''' where there can be no any embezzlement /fraud henceforth ...
