Kuwait: Indemnity Changes Under Consideration

Senior Kuwaiti Government officials have confirmed there is a Parliamentary consensus on amending Kuwait Law No. 17/2018 which includes amendments to Kuwait Law No. 6/2010 (the Private Sector Labour Law). The proposed amendment states Kuwaiti nationals are entitled to full indemnities at the end of their service without employers deducting sums from their salaries to pay for the Public Authority for Social Security subscription. Indemnities will be paid in full by the current employer at the end of their service retrospectively actively from the date of Kuwait Law No. 6/2010 being implemented.
