Officials of Nepal, Oman agree on settling Nepali workers’ issues


KATHMANDU: High ranking officials of Nepal and Oman have reached an agreement to settle various labour issues of Nepali workers in Oman and those aspiring for jobs there including zero investment jobs. A technical committee comprising the officials held in Kathmandu on Thursday and Friday gave a final touch to the draft of the memorandum of understanding in this regard.
The MoU will be signed after a Cabinet meeting of both the countries approved the draft, said Dr Ram Prasad Ghimire, joint secretary of the Ministry of Labour, Employment and Social Security, who led the Nepali officials to the meeting.
“Once the MoU is enforced, Nepalis aspiring to go to Oman for jobs will be exempted from bearing any cost in this regard. Employers themselves will bear all expenses, it has been agreed upon. Nepali workers in destination countries can seek a free legal remedy as well,” said Dr Ghimire. Employers will also bear the amount for health and work place accident insurance for employees according to the agreement, he said.
Oman’s side was led by Salim bin Said al-Badi, director-general of labour welfare at the Ministry of Manpower, Oman.
