Bahrain has recorded a compliance rate of 98% with its midday work break. 

The kingdom's Minister of Labour, Jameel bin Mohammed Ali Humaidan, announced the figure upon the end of the break's implementation for 2017. 

Humaidan added that more than 150,000 workers have benefited from the ban, which was implemented between noon and 4pm. 

Up to 7,890 surprise and regular inspection visits were implemented by specialised labour ministry teams to review the ban's implementation. 

Labour teams recorded 92 violations with 173 workers impacted by the rules being flouted. 

Legal action will be taken against the violators, Humaidan said, according to BNA.

A jail term not exceeding three months, and/or a fine worth between $1,326 and $2,652 (BHD500 and BHD1,000), may be inflicted upon the violators.
