Ill considered decisions caused by Govt creates confusion

KUWAIT CITY, June 4: In a new scene of the confusion caused by government’s ill-considered decisions, some banks were unable to open a number of branches allowed to operate, based on Cabinet’s decision to move the sector’s work from the second phase to the first phase of the plan of returning life.

Banking sources affirmed that a large number of the national workforce in banks described the announcement made by the official spokesman of the Council of Ministers to return the institutions that were operating at the time of the previous partial ban, including banks, as “not binding”, given that the national workforce rate in banks is very high.

They explained that a number of banks have resorted to compensate for the deficit in the number of the national workforce with their expatriate colleagues from the second phase, seeing working on rest days is optional.

They pointed out that some employees considered postponing the work of banks for the second stage of the return plan linked to the degree of virus activity and infection, which means that returning in the first phase may involve a higher risk of transmission
