KUWAIT CITY, Jan 30: The Civil Service Commission, headed by Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance Anas Al-Saleh, has decided to double the time limit for expatriates who were officially informed that their services would be terminated in January to six months with full payment, reports Al-Anba daily.
Informed sources said in spite of the fact that the legal deadline for expatriates whose services were terminated in ministries and government institutions, including the Civil Service Commission, is only 3 months, the CSC has decided to give them six months until July 1, 2018.
The sources close to the issue explained the decision includes all expatriates who have been informed of the termination of their services in accordance with CSC Resolution No. 11 of 2017. They will continue to work and will be paid full salaries until the end of the school year to ensure the stability of their children in their schools.
The sources confirmed the decision was issued in coordination between the Civil Service Commission and the Ministry of Finance on the implementation of the replacement policy, adding that the number of expatriates is more than 3,000 in all government institutions. In accordance with the CSC Law, expatriates whose services have been terminated in governmental institutions are not permitted to work in any other government institution.
