Oman’s Labour Law is back in the spotlight after reports surfaced this week that the Royal Oman Police (ROP) and the Ministry of Manpower would soon make an announcement on the existing laws.
In an interview with national broadcaster Oman TV, the Minister of Manpower, Sheikh Abdullah bin Nasser al Bakri, said: “The Labour Law is in the process of being implemented and will be issued soon.”
He added that discussions over whether Oman’s Labour Law should be updated were now “complete” and that the findings would be revealed “as soon as procedures are completed”.
The much discussed Labour Law formed a part of the Tanfeedh labs discussions, which were held late last year.
Since then, the ROP and the Ministry of Manpower have reportedly been discussing whether to implement a change in the law. The Minister added that “a national committee has been set up to run the large number of job seekers”.
Details on what the changes will be or when the announcement will be made have not yet been revealed. But stay tuned for more information.
