The government is currently working on new policies to curb the growing number of resignations and arbitrary dismissals in the private sector.
The Labour Court reviewed 67 cases filed by employees who had been arbitrarily dismissed from their jobs last week. The court provided monetary compensation to citizens, noting that their dismissal had been arbitrary.
The number of arbitrary dismissals is on the rise in the Sultanate as a result of instability in the labour market due to the absence of incentives that encourage employees to continue working with a company, especially at low-level jobs.
The government is currently working on new policies to curb the growing number of resignations and arbitrary dismissals in the private sector, which employs some 210,000 citizens.
Experts stress upon the need to motivate people who wish to set up personal projects as well
as the need to create an independent body to encourage setting up of Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs).
These experts also urged the relevant government departments to facilitate all procedures through modern methods and to allow the completion of transactions under a single umbrella.
Such procedures will contribute to reducing the number of cases in labour courts, according to experts.
