Indemnity Calculation as per New Labor Law

 How can we calculate indemnity as per the new Kuwait Labour Law?

Name withheld

Answer: According to Article 51 of the new Kuwait Labour Law an employee has right to receive end of service pay as follows:

Hour/daily wage: The worker gets indemnity equal to 10 days salary every year during the first five years, and 15 days the following years. Total payment should not be more than one-year salary for employees who get paid on daily, weekly, hourly or per job basis.

Monthly-wage employees: Indemnity of 15 days for the first five years, and one month salary for the following years. Total payment should not be more than the one-year and half salary for employees paid on monthly basis.
