- Earlier, the Ministry said that every company should do an evaluation of itself in January of each year. The ministry talked about how important self-evaluation is because it helps companies figure out if they are following the rules and regulations and how to fix their own mistakes.
- Self-evaluation is also a requirement for using electronic services from the Ministry of Human Resources.
- The MHRSD asked all giant, large, and medium-sized companies to sign up for the self-evaluation programme and do the evaluation online through the Ministry website. To change a work contract in Qiwa, both the employer and the worker must agree to the change.
- The Ministry also made it clear that if a company’s self-evaluation results weren’t good, they wouldn’t have to pay any money because of it.
