Spotlight on efforts to monitor labour market

EFFORTS to monitor the labour market and clampdown on violations came under the spotlight yesterday.

Labour Minister Jameel Humaidan stressed continued inspection campaigns targeting enterprises, shopping outlets, suqs and places where labourers gather.

He highlighted the drive while chairing a board meeting of the Labour Market Regulatory Authority (LMRA), in the presence of members and chief executive Nouf Jamsheer.

The minister stressed the importance of coping with the fast changing labour market to meet its needs under the 2023-2026 National Labour Market Plan.

The roadmap aims to develop the labour market, maintain its growth momentum and stability, support economic competitiveness and attract foreign direct investments to create sustainable jobs for citizens, he said.

Ms Jamsheer submitted a report outlining efforts to enhance the quality of services delivered to citizens, employers and workers, highlighting LMRA achievements during the first half of 2023, as well as planned priority projects.

She pledged to continue efforts to further streamline LMRA procedures to facilitate the delivery of transactions.

In this regard, she noted the signing of a memorandum of understanding with the Social Insurance Organisation (SIO) regarding private sector wages.

The deal aims to ensure the accuracy of data related to the actual wages of workers in the private sector, review and match all paid wages with the insured wage, and notify employers about salary differences.
