No indemnity for service below 3 yrs

If I resign from my company by end of this month (30/04/2018) with 3 month notice period. There is one day weekly off (without Friday) or daily 1 hour leave from working hour is applicable or not. Same thing if they are terminating me, there is one day weekly off (without Friday) or daily 1 hour leave from working hour is applicable or not. Please advise my joining data August 2015, how can I get indemnity.

Name withheld

Answer: When you tender in your resignation the understanding is that either you are leaving to take up a new job in another company or leaving Kuwait for good.

The issue of one day off in a week or one hour off daily does not arise. On the other hand, if you are fired you need to be given adequate time to look for another job hence the institution of the one day 1 one hour rule.

Your 3-month notice period will end on July 30, 2018. By that date you will have put in 2 years 11 months of service.

This falls one month short of the 3 years you need to put in the be entitled to an indemnity. In short you have nothing to collect from your company since you are resigning and not being fired.
