KUWAIT CITY, June 21: The Ministry of Electricity, Water and Renewable Energy announced the ministry’s sectors have compiled the lists of names of the ministry’s employees who were exempted from hours so that their names will not be included in the lists of employees who are entitled for ‘excellent work’ rewards, reports Al-Rai daily. The sources said “after listing the names, it was found that there are about 2,100 employees in the ministry who are exempted from work and are not be eligible for rewards,” noting that the ministry has decided to grant these employees the ‘excellence’ so as not to deprive them of their benefit.
The ministry sources explained those who are listed for excellence reward for 2020 include names of those who were exempted from work. The lists contains names of 17,000 employees out of 23,000 total employees working for the ministry, which put the ministry in an unenviable position, especially since the financial item allocated to these rewards does not cover the existing number. The sources pointed out the ministry had earlier written to the Ministry of Finance to increase the fund so that the reward for those who are entitled will not be reduced, and is awaiting a response, while necessary action is being taken.
On the other hand, the Ministry has extended the time frame for those who want to apply for supervisory jobs and for the position of Department Director and supervisor until June 24 instead of June 17. The Insurance Regulatory Unit, in cooperation with the General Traffic Department (GTD) at the Ministry of Interior, has updated the list of companies authorized to issue insurance policy for civil liability to others arising from traffic accidents (compulsory insurance for vehicles), reports Al-Anba daily quoting sources.
