Contract signed for 2 yrs – Can I get release after 2 yrs

I’m currently working for an exchange company in Kuwait. I have signed a 2 year contract with them I’m at point of almost completing my contract. Can I ask for release from my company after completion of my contract? Please let me know about the laws if I am denied release from my current company and steps to be taken after completion of my contract.

Name withheld

Answer: If the contract signed is for two years, then it means that both sides must respect its stipulations including the time frame. If after completing the contract period and the company tries to renege on its side of the bargain by refusing to give you a release you will have no option than to file a case against it with the ministry of Social Affairs and Labour thought the Labour department in your area which will compel the company to release you.
