(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) The crackdown on Labour Law violations is getting a technological boost with a special mobile phone application being developed for Ministry of Manpower (MoM) inspectors.


Once ready, this app will allow labour inspectors quick access to MoM's database to obtain information on workers anywhere and at any time. ''The task of checking if establishments and workers are complying with Labour Law will become easier and faster with this application,'' Asila Mohammed al Kalbany, director of MoM's Information Systems and Internet Application Department, told Muscat Daily.

Currently, the work of labour inspectors is broadly divided into two steps. ''The first,'' Asila said, ''is to check a worker's residence card and enquire about his or her employer and work details. Calls are then made to the concerned MoM office for the worker's information. If it matches, the worker is let off.''


If not, the next step involves filing a case report. ''The inspector files the case report after returning to office. He further investigates the case by finding out more details about the worker, the employer and prepares the case sheet to be submitted to the authorities.''


Once the new application is activated, all this will happen at the tap of a button. ''The civil number will help the inspector access details about the worker from ministry's database. He can even file the case report through this application. In case workers are not carrying their residence cards, the inspector just has to feed in his name to get all details. This application will be ready for download later this month.''


This app is another development by MoM after Na'mal launched in mid-March under the eGovernment initiative, to help expatriates, Omani and employes access information and receive updates. The android version of this app has been downloaded over 25,000 times. There have been over 2,000 downloads since the iOS version was launched in the second week of
