KUWAIT CITY, April 4: While a decree was officially issued to amend the civil service system allowing state employees to cash their annual leave, state employees say the Civil Service Commission (CSC) is expected to lay down rules and regulations in this regard, reports Al-Qabas daily. The decree, a copy of which has been obtained by the daily, stipulated that a third paragraph should be added to Article 41 of the decree issued by the CSC which states that an employee who has served in the state for at least five years may cash his/her balance annual leave while in service.
The text of this article stipulated “that the employee’s balance after cash disbursement shall not be less than thirty days until the end of the Gregorian year, and the Civil Service Council may set other rules and conditions for encashing the leave. The decree is effective from the date of its publication in the Official Gazette, which is expected to be published next Sunday.
Meanwhile, related sources revealed that the application to cash annual leave is subject to controls, such as the number of times an employee is allowed to encash annual leave during service and other controls, which requires a decision from the CSC, pointing out that no date has yet been set for the meeting with the concerned authority.
