Oman: Minimum Wage and Omanisation

Categories: Middle East & North Africa, Oman, Economics & Business, Governance, Labor

Omani blogger Suburban questions [1] the effectiveness of setting an Omanization quota for corporations in order to reduce the reliance on expatriate labour and provide greater work opportunities for Omani national citizens. Suburban argues that the stringent rules for laying off non-performing Omani employees along with the proposed increase in the minimum wage for Omani employees would only negatively influence the employers’ decision when choosing between a national and an expatriate employee.
