The Department of Consumer Protection in Seeb has recently close an office of bringing manpower under a temporary judicial decision, due to repeated complaints against it for its failure to provide services to consumers as agreed between them.


Concerning the facts of the case, The Department received a  lot of complaints against the office, where consumers reported that they had contracted the office to bring manpower within an agreed period of time and with specific specifications and conditions, but it violated the contracts agreed with consumers, which is contrary to Article 23 of the Consumer Protection Law, that states (Provider is obliged to provide the service to the consumer properly and in accordance with its nature, as well as to ensure the provision of the service within a period of time commensurate with its nature, and in the case of the failure, the provider is obliged to pay back the value of the service or to perform it again properly, As defined by the Regulation). Accordingly, the administration has taken all the procedures in place in such cases, and for the failure of the office to response to the administration and for the continuing of the complaints against it because of its lack of transparency and credibility with consumers, the Public Prosecutor was addressed to close the facility, which in turn issued a judicial decision to temporarily close the office and suspend the activity pending the adjudication of the proceedings against it.


The Public Authority for Consumer Protection calls on labor recruitment offices to abide with consumer protection laws and regulations and emphasizes that it will not hesitate to take the necessary steps to safeguard consumer rights and preserve their money.
