KUWAIT CITY, March 4: The terminated contracts of expatriate employees of the public sector will not be renewed, reports Al-Anba daily quoting governmental sources.
They explained that these employees will not be allowed to work in any other institutions in the public sector. A new batch of Kuwaiti citizens with different educational qualifications will join the labor market to replace these expatriates in accordance with the requests for labor needs sent to Civil Service Commission (CSC) by different state institutions.
There will be no exceptions in terms of appointing expatriates in the public sector. Concerning the specializations that are not covered by Kuwaiti employees, a decision must be made by CSC to ensure these jobs are filled by expatriate employees. However, such positions are limited and their numbers are not big.
The sources highlighted the government’s decision, which obligates all state institutions to reduce the number of their expatriate employees per year until the fixed rates for each specialization are reached in 2022 based on the government’s plan launched in September 2017.
They revealed that a list of expatriate employees who will be dismissed in the coming fiscal year, which starts from April 1, is being prepared along with those whose contracts have been terminated.
