The Ministry of Human Resources launched an initiative 3 months ago to improve the contractual relationship, to support the ministry’s vision of building an attractive job market, empowering and developing human competencies and developing the work environment. The initiative provides 3 main services, namely the job mobility service, the development of exit and return mechanisms, and the final exit, and the initiative’s services include all expatriate workers in private sector establishments within specific controls that take into account the rights of the parties to the contractual relationship, provided that the initiative enters into force on March 14th. The job mobility service allows a migrant worker to transfer to another job upon the expiry of his work contract without the need for the employer’s approval.
