Tamkeen intensifies inspection visits during H1 of 2024


Manama, The Labour Fund (Tamkeen) affirmed its ongoing efforts to ensure the optimal use of support programmes in line with the Labour fund’s mandate. This includes intensifying inspection visits to enterprises and individuals benefiting from programmes aimed at supporting employment and career development, at a rate six times higher than before.

Additionally, a mechanism has been introduced with the Ministry of Labour to notify Tamkeen in cases of arbitrary dismissal, and necessary actions will be taken according to the violating regulations, which may include recovering support funds or barring employers from applying for programmes upon proof of non-compliance with programme terms and conditions, in addition to proactive surveys to individual beneficiaries of the wage support programmes to inquire about their employment status.

During the first half of this year, 2341 inspection visits were conducted, resulting in the detection of various violations, including 13 related to ghost employment, fraud, and d
ocument forgery. Necessary actions have been taken regarding the identified violations, and cases are referred to relevant authorities.

Maha Abdulhameed Mofeez, Chief Executive of Tamkeen, emphasised the commitment to intensify monitoring and inspection efforts, aiming to provide optimal support and guidance to eligible beneficiaries.

“The success of these efforts undoubtedly relies on close collaboration with our government partners based on shared responsibility and working within the Team Bahrain framework,” Mofeez said.

Tamkeen encourages the public and beneficiaries to report illegal practices and violations confidentially and securely through the dedicated violations hotline at 17383383 or through email report@tamkeen.bh.
