Company has not given probation letter – Can I get release from company

I came to Kuwait on Government Project visa and completed 9 months. Until now I didn’t receive my probation confirmation letter and also even I didn’t sign any official contract letters. Now i got another opportunity on the same governmental project with another company and my present company is saying they will not give the release. Can you advise me any option I have???

Answer: The Company is within its rights to refuse to give you a release since under the labour law you are required to work for them for three years before you can ask for a release. So far as you are working and receiving your salary, there is no need to worry about probation confirmation or contract signing. Take note that a contract could also be verbal and not always written.
