LMRA Conducts Four Joint Inspection Campaigns in the Capital, Muharraq, and Southern Governorates

The Labour Market Regulatory Authority (LMRA) conducted four joint inspection campaigns in coordination with the Ministry of Interior in the Capital, Muharraq, and the Southern Governorates.

The inspection campaigns included visits to a number of shops and work sites, to determine the extent of compliance with laws and regulations in order to preserve the competitiveness, stability, and productivity of the labour Market. The campaigns resulted in reporting violations related to the Labour Market and Residency laws. The cases were referred for legal action.

The Authority announced that two joint inspection campaigns were carried out in Muharraq Governorate, the first campaign was attended by the Nationality, Passports and Residence Affairs and the Governorate’s respective Police Directorate, while the second campaign was in coordination with the General Directorate of Criminal Investigation and Forensic Evidence.

The third was in the Capital, Governorate in coordination with the Sentences Enforcement Directorate and the fourth campaign was in the Southern Governorate with the participation of the General Directorate of Criminal Investigation and Forensic Evidence.
