A new one-year work contract for domestic workers based on a tripartite contract will be implemented soon, according to informed sources.
“There will also be other modifications with regard to work contracts for domestic workers, which will be revealed soon,” reported Al Ayam newspaper. The plan pioneered by Labour Market and Regulatory Authority (LMRA) plans to reduce the sufferings of domestic workers amid rising allegations of torture and harassment. The tripartite contract will be signed between the domestic worker, sponsor and the agency responsible for recruiting the worker.
The source said the primary purpose of the tripartite contract is to safeguard the rights of all three parties: the employers, the domestic servants, and the agencies.
