KUWAIT CITY, April 30: The Kuwait Banking Association has called on the Ministry of Education to deposit the end-of-service dues for about 2,000 male and female resident teachers covered under the replacement (Kuwaitization) decision, in their bank accounts with local banks so that they are able to collect their dues and preserve their rights, reports Al-Qabas daily.
According to informed sources, the association, in its letter sent to the Ministry of Education, explained that there are debts owed by hundreds of expatriate teachers whose services will be terminated by the ministry at the end of the current academic year of 2022/2023. If the relevant sectors pay the end-of-service dues through some other means, it will negatively affect the collection of dues by banks.
The association called on the ministry to provide it with the names of the employees whose services will be terminated at the end of the academic year, in preparation for settling their dues, in accordance with the proper legal frameworks and regulations.
Meanwhile, the Ministry of Health has called on its Ministry of Education counterpart to encourage and facilitate the participation of schools in the “Healthy City” movement.
It stressed that the involvement of more parts of the country in this movement “reflects the community’s willingness to work on improving the conditions that affect its health, one of which is education in its various aspects, from the school environment and activities, and the quality of education, in addition to communication with the community and parents.”
