Oman: 50% Pay Cut Clarification Issued
Oman’s Manpower Ministry has issued a clarification on reports of pay being cut by 50%. The Ministry was responding to reports in other media saying employers were cutting pay by 50% instead of 30%. The Ministry said the Supreme Anti-Coronavirus Committee has not approved a percentage cut to employee pay once an employee has used up all their paid annual leave. Once the paid annual leave has been used up employers can negotiate reductions in their pay for three months. Any reductions must be accompanied by a reduction in working time.
