A construction company has started releasing the salary arrears of workers who have not been paid for a long time after the successful intervention of the Labour and Social Development Ministry.
The move follows orders from His Royal Highness Prime Minister Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa to the Labour and Social Development Ministry to intensify efforts with all the relevant parties, including the construction firm, to undertake necessary legal and financial procedures to ensure the payment of the workers’ salary arrears. The company shall complete the payment of the salaries within a week to all the workers.
Workers who choose to leave the country shall also receive all their salary arrears, and the Ministry of Workers will facilitate their departure at the Bahrain International Airport. The Ministry stressed the government’s keenness on ensuring the rights of workers, who are the cornerstone of the country’s development and progress
