Foreigners should be fully aware of their duties

August 27, 20170 Comments

Member of Parliament Dr Jamaan Al-Harbash issued a statement on the employment contracts of expatriates; stressing that priority should be given to citizens in employment in the government sector,

because it is wrong to have expatriates working in fields where citizens have the ability to do so and the government must rectify this error, reports Al-Anba daily.

To support his argument, Al-Harbash cited many advertisements on the need for teachers in Kuwait University or the Public Authority for Applied Education and Training (PAAET) and growing demand for contracting with members of the judicial authorities in other Arab countries, whereas many citizens are rejected for flimsy reasons.

He said it is not permissible also to employ expatriates with the intention of benefiting from them in one way or another, which unfortunately, is the norm in some advisory positions in certain government bodies. In some positions, the citizen does not get the salary given to the expatriate despite having similar qualifications and job descriptions, he asserted.

“Having huge number of some nationalities is a security and social threat; however, expatriates should live a good life by having actual jobs, not marginalized. From the day an expatriate enters Kuwait, he should be fully aware of his duties and rights,” the lawmaker explained.
