Penalties on those who employ expatriates under the sponsorship of other employers
penalties will be imposed on those who employ expatriates under the sponsorship of other employers, local media Al-Qabas daily reported quoting Official spokesperson of the Public Authority for Manpower Aseel Al-Mazya.
According to report, the authority launched a media campaign to raise awareness among employers on these stiff penalties and to stop them from hiring those who violated the Residency Law. The campaign dubbed as “Ta’zeez” (Consolidation) aims to consolidate the concept of suitable labor in Kuwait and to inform employers about what they should do to achieve the development objectives of the country through the creation of a safe, stable and fair working environment for everyone.
The law stipulates jail term not exceeding three years and fine of not less than KD 2,000 and not more than KD 10,000 or both penalties for employers who hire workers who are not under their sponsorship. This does not interfere with the administrative right to deport such employees.
