Kuwait to allow workers in 6 sectors to transfer jobs


The Director-General of the Public Authority for Manpower (PAM) in Kuwait said the country will allow workers in six different sectors to transfer to any other sector.

Those working in manufacturing, agriculture, herding, fishing, cooperative societies, and free trade zones can transfer to any other sector but subject to their employers’ agreement.

The decision is set to go into effect as of Thursday, July 15.

This will automatically null the decision against a transfer on labor from different sectors that were put in place in 2015.

Al Mousa said in a press statement that the decision was issued to allow for more market flexibility due to a shortage in the labor market, mainly as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
