Comp ordered: The Court of First Instance obliged Ministry of Commerce and Industry to pay KD 200 in compensation to a Kuwaiti lady employee in relation to an assessment report of 2014. Case files indicated the lady employee was rated (very good) although she received (excellent) in previous years. Plaintiff lawyer AbdulMohsin Al-Qattan said his client has always received ‘excellent’ rating since joining the Ministry of Commerce and Industry, so she was surprised when she received ‘very good’ in the assessment report of 2014 report. Lawyer Al-Qattan added his client filed a complaint because she presented the best of efforts as always, without committing any mistake. He implored the court to order modification of report and compensation of his client.
