The Rouhani administration has issued a new directive that would ease the retirement law for Iranians working in “difficult and hazardous occupations,” Ali Rabiee, the labor minister, announced on Wednesday. The directive has been issued based on a proposal by of the ministry of cooperatives, labor, and social welfare, according to IRNA, citing the minister. The new law permits the workers with difficult and hazardous jobs to retire after 20 years of employment “even if they have been employed as ordinary workers for less than a year” during their 20-year service. Ordinary workers need to work for 30 years before they can retire.
