KUWAIT CITY, Dec 17: The Civil Service Commission (CSC) issued a decision to end the services of expatriate employees in government departments and agencies who are more than 50 years old, reports Al-Anba daily.
A source disclosed the commission will start implementing the decision on March 1 and it will cover all nationalities. He said the decision also applies to all professions where Kuwaitis can fill vacancies and are on the waiting list.
He explained the government has a plan on how to deal with the technical oriented jobs, but the affected expatriates will continue in such jobs until the manpower needs are met. He stressed the government decided to embark on the policy to appoint Kuwaitis who are on the waiting list for employment. He hinted the number of affected expatriates outweighs Kuwaitis on the waiting list — not more than 20,000 with intermediate and lower qualifications.
