Manpower and Government Restructuring Program's (MGRP) Secretary General underlined the necessity of avoiding bad effects could happen to Kuwaiti employees in case of restructuring companies.
"This move requires control rules to consequences of the restructuring process inside companies not to harm its Kuwaiti employees," MGRP's Secretary General Fawzy Al-Majdaly said in a statement Saturday.
He stressed that the companies have the right to conduct restructuring but they at the same time should take into consideration the interests of Kuwaitis.
"Employees have the right to continue working in a company as long as they make progress and are not fired by disciplinary offense leads," he added, pointing out recruiting Kuwaitis in private sector is controlled by rules regulating quotas specified to each company.
The restructuring is based on keeping the same quota as a minimum of employees before restructuring and presenting a report on bad effects happened to employees due to that move, he explained.
Al-Majdaly rejected justifications of some companies that they arbitrarily fired about 60 Kuwaiti employees, deeming them as unjustified.
He added that the normal restructuring could create, develop jobs or cancel some. In this case, the company could take advantage of its employees, including the fired ones, by training and recruiting those who lost their jobs and provide them with expertise to find new jobs, he concluded.
