New process of the transfer of an employee from one employer to another from 2016

imagesAs per Arabtimes, The Manpower Public Authority issued an administrational Decree No. 842/2015 which contains many regulations aimed to organize the process of the transfer of an employee from one employer to another from the beginning of 2016.

He explained that the decisions include one that permits an employee to transfer his sponsorship from one employer to another if he has worked for three consecutive years and has given the employer a three-month notice in accordance to Article 44 of Law No. 6/2010 concerning the private sector. However, if the contract is bound by time, the employee has to complete the time duration of the contract even if it is for more than three years.

Dr Al-Jafour indicated about some cases where the three-year condition does not apply, such as if the employees entered the country on government contracts. “In such a case, their sponsorship cannot be transferred until the expiry of their contracts. In the case of laborers who enter the country on contracts for certain activities such as agriculture, fishing, industrial and rearing of livestock, they cannot transfer their sponsorship outside their field and unless they worked for at least one year”, he explained.

If the contract has a time limit, it should not be less than one year and more than five years. In addition, the contract signed by both parties automatically renews itself when the period of contract ends, provided both parties agree on the same terms and conditions of that contract, which is in accordance with Article 31 of the unified work contract law.
