Employee not allowed to choose his work schedule

Kuwait Civil Service Commission

KUWAIT CITY, Nov 12, (Agencies): A source stated in statements to a press that government agencies that have not issued a decision until now to implement the flexible working hours system are not obligated to do so. This is because the decision of the Civil Service Commission Resolution No. 3 for the year 2023, regarding the determination of official working hours in government agencies, has specified in Article 2 the flexible working hours system. In the same decision, Article 5 states that ‘government agencies may require employees to adhere to work schedules that do not exceed the four-hour periods.’

This article obliges the employee, in this case, to adhere to the schedule determined by the agency (both arrival and departure), and the employee is not allowed to choose his schedule according to the flexible working hours system.

The source added that Article 3 of the same decision stipulates that the application of the flexible working hours system requires the internal systems of the government agency to allow multiple proofs of attendance and departure times, calculate the official working hours, and individually determine the grace period for each employee.

The source further explained: This is in addition to the presence of government service agencies that start receiving citizens at 8:30am, and the flexible working hours system does not apply to them, as the auditor should not wait for the employee’s shift.
