Bahrain: Calls to End the System of Flexible Work Permits

Bahraini MPs have called on the Government to end the system of flexible work permits used by freelancers immediately and compensate merchants for damage caused by the system. The Labour Minister has said flexible workers do not have the right to establish a private company and added the practice does not hurt Bahraini employment. Workers will not be allowed to move to another sponsor until two years of service and will pay 500 Dinars in insurance when entering the country to cover any claims against them.
