Release for new restaurant staff

I am working in a restaurant. I am new to Kuwait only 4 months over. I signed contract for two years. Can I get release after one year? Since company is only providing two days off per month and 12 hours duty and salary also very less.

Answer: Unfortunately you cannot get a release after one year since you signed a two-year contract with the company. The only option you have is that if you feel the company is not going by the dictates of the contract with regard to the number of hours you work per day or the number of times you get an off in a month or any other issue not in consonance with the contract, then you can file a case with the Ministry of Social Affairs and Labour through the Labour Office in your area to seek redress.
