I was terminated and I will get the termination benefit as per Kuwaiti law. I requested my manager not to terminate me. Instead of terminating I will submit my resignation. So, I have given my resignation letter and my manager released me on the same day. Now I will get all termination benefits. Can you please let me know if he will give me a relieving and experience letter?
Answer: If what you meant by “relieving and experience letter” is a letter of explanatory recommendation, then in accordance to the labor law, an employer is not obligated to issue a non-financial beneficial letter to a terminated employee.
This matter is entirely up to your employer and your standing relationship with him/her. If what you meant was a letter of termination, then yes you should receive one, although a lot of people don’t bother with it.
On the other hand, if these are not what you were referring to, you could always request that letter or a copy of it whether it is mandatory for them to issue it or not from your employers. If it is mandatory, but they refuse to give it to you, you can easily file a complaint at the Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs.
