Training course in settlement of labour disputes opens in Oman



Director-General of Labour Welfare at the ministry Saleh bin A’ail Al Amri said the course, which will last until November 6, was aimed at familiarising the trainees with mechanisms used in labour disputes and ILO agreements and settlement of disputes.

Amri said the Sultanate’s economic and social progress reflected positively on the private sector, resulting in the issue of a new Labour Law in 2003. He added the government, employers and employees had contributed in the drafting of the law that met Arab and international labour standards.

He also said the ministry had finalised a plan to promote worksite inspections to protect the rights of both employers and employees.

The inaugural ceremony was presided over by Khalil bin Abdullah Al Khunji, Chairman of the Oman Chamber of Commerce and Industry (OCCI) and attended by Sayyid Hamad bin Hilal Al Busaidi, Labour Affairs Under-Secretary, and Hamad bin Khamis Al A’mri, Under-Secretary for Technical Training at the ministry. Officials from the government and representatives of employers and employees are taking part in the course.
