3rd stage to include 180 expatriates
KUWAIT CITY, Oct 12: In continuation of the replacement policy initiated by the Public Authority for Housing Welfare (PAHW) in June, the administrative sectors have updated lists of their expatriate employees in preparation for the termination of the services of these employees within the second phase of the implementation of the decision of Public Works Minister and State Minister for Housing Affairs Dr Rana Al-Faris on the total Kuwaitization of jobs in the authority, reports Al-Jarida daily quoting sources from the authority.
Sources revealed the administrative sectors submitted the names of about 90 expatriates who will be terminated in January 2021, after the official notice period which will be served to them early next month. Sources pointed out that the second stage of the decision will include at least 33 percent of the total number of expatriates working at PAHW – similar to the first phase.
Sources said the third and last phase will include about 180 expatriate workers and the notice period will be served to them in the beginning of April, indicating these workers will be terminated in July 2021 to achieve 100 percent Kuwaitization of jobs in the authority. It is worth mentioning that Al-Faris ended the services of 135 expatriates in June – out of about 400 foreign workers; excluding the children of Kuwaiti women married to non-Kuwaitis, Bedouns and service employees including drivers and messengers.
