Manpower: Intensifying oversight of domestic labor recruitment offices

The inspection teams of the Domestic Labor Recruitment Department at the Public Authority for Manpower carried out a series of inspection campaigns on the offices and agencies of recruiting domestic workers in different regions of the country, after complaints were received that some of them did not comply with the price set by the Ministry of Commerce, which is set at 890 dinars.

Informed sources told that the total number of violations that were monitored on the offices amounted to 25 violations during the past three months, while legal and regulatory measures were taken against violators.
