Kuwait: Govt. warns 281 cos. for violating summer ban on working outdoor that entered into force this month

"Kuwait: 281 businesses warned over outdoor work ban," 23 June 2021

Kuwaiti labour authorities have warned 281 companies in the past 17 days for failure to observe a summer ban on working outdoors that went into effect earlier this month, an official said.

On June 1, Kuwait started enforcing the ban on working in direct sun daily from 11am till 4pm for three months.

“Inspection teams toured 377 sites in different areas of the country until June 17,” said Asil Al Muzaid, a spokeswoman for the Public Authority of Manpower. “Some 439 workers were spotted at the sites and 281 violating companies were exposed during that period. They were warned to redress infringements,” she told Kuwaiti newspaper Al Anba.
