I worked in a company from June 2005 to July 2016, but even after 10 months after my resignation, I have not received the settlement for the 11 years of my service with the company and my 1-1/2 months salary is also pending with them.
Please advise as it is very painful that I did not receive my hard earned money even after working sincerely in KOC/KNPC projects with the company. Some of the employees, who resigned after me, got their settlement through somebody’s recommendations according to the information received through some source. Kindly advise me how I can get my settlement without any further delay. Awaiting your valuable advise please.
Answer: You are entitled to the end of service settlement in addition to the unpaid one and half month’s salary by virtue of Kuwait Labour Law. The company is violating the law by withholding what is due you in terms of indemnity and unpaid salary. In this situation, you have no alternative than to file a complaint with the Ministry of Social Affairs and Labour through the Labour Department in your area to seek redress. If this action fails, you have another chance to take your case to a court of competent jurisdiction to seek justice. You may need the services of a lawyer to help you prosecute your case even though it will come at a monetary loss.
