The Lower House on Tuesday decided to exempt Gazan labourers and non-Jordanians whose mothers are from Jordan, from having to apply for a work permit.

During the session, which was chaired by Lower House Speaker Atef Tarawneh and attended by the Cabinet, to discuss the 2018 amended Labour Law, deputies also redefined “flexible work”, “wage discrimination” and “part-time job” definitions in the law, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.
