KUWAIT CITY, Sept 18: Secretary-General of the Manpower and Government Restructuring Program (MGRP) and State Executive System Fawzi Al-Majdali issued an administrative circular to all employees on the need to register their attendance through the fingerprint system irrespective of their positions or period of service, reports Al-Anba daily.
The cancellation of fingerprint attendance system exemption for any employee is based on Civil Service Commission (CSC) Decision No. 8/2017 which stipulates it is not allowed to cancel the fingerprint attendance system in any governmental entity.
The circular pointed out that exemption from the fingerprint attendance system is only for employees with severe or medium mental disability, but these employees should submit a certificate from the Public Authority for Handicapped Affairs stating their inability to register attendance through fingerprint.
The circular also stressed the need for employees exempted from the fingerprint attendance system to be committed to the official working hours, indicating the fingerprint attendance system will be applied on all employees starting from October.
