Ramadan work timings in Kuwait for Muslims & Non Muslims

This is for clarification only: are expatriate non-Muslims included in the 6-hour working day during Ramadan?

Name withheld

Answer: The Kuwaiti law doesn’t differentiate between Muslims and non-Muslims on any such issue.
Secondly, Article 64 of the Kuwait Labor Law talks of 36 working hours a week during Ramadan. This means those private firms which have a 6-day week have a shift of 6 hours per day while those which have a 5-day week can have just over 7 hours a day. This law is applicable to all expats regardless of religion.

The Arab Times invites questions on all aspects of Kuwaiti law. If you face a problem, or need specific advice on any legal matter, from commercial and investment law to divorce and labour, send questions to the Managing Editor, Arab Times, P.O. Box 2270, 13023 Safat, Kuwait, or Fax to 24818267.
