The Labour and Social Development Ministry has announced the launch of electronic employment procedures as of Monday. Job-seekers are now provided with full opportunities to enter the system on its website easily, register their attendance and apply for vacant jobs that suit them.
In a statement, the Labour and Social Development Ministry said entitlement to the unemployment allowance requires job seekers’ electronic attendance registration on the system.
The statement stated that the e-system spares job-seekers the effort of personally reporting to the Ministry or employment and training centres, as part of the precautionary measures it has taken to implement the decisions of the Executive Committee, led by His Royal Highness Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, the Crown Prince, Deputy Supreme Commander and First Deputy Prime Minister, to combat novel coronavirus (COVID-19).
The statement further stated that the ministry is keen on harnessing electronic systems to serve the citizens and achieve more fairness and transparency in its employment systems.
The Labour and Social Development Ministry called on job seekers who find difficulties in dealing with its e-services to call the hotline and get the necessary advice. They may also visit employment and training centres across various governorates.
