KUWAIT CITY, Nov 28: The Ministry of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs obligated those working under the “acting capacity” clause to take a full month’s leave without pay during the current fiscal year of 2023/2024. If not, it will consider them administratively furloughed “based on what the interest of the work requires” according to a decision issued by the ministry’s Undersecretary Bader Al-Mutairi, reports Al-Seyassah daily. According to the decision, each concerned employee must choose the time during which he wishes to obtain leave and submit the application to his administrative authority.

The leave can either be continuous or in two periods of no less than 15 days in each period. In the event that the application is not submitted, the employee’s leave will be automatically recorded, and all departments must take into account the size of the workforce during those periods in a way that ensures its regularity and good conduct therein.

The decision stipulated that all groups enjoying the summer and spring holidays in the relevant centers and registrars would be excluded from the above decision and that this circular would be implemented and communicated to all sectors. The Assistant Undersecretary for Administrative and Financial Affairs and Chairman of the Central Committee for Assignment System Management Ibrahim Al-Khaza circulated to the directors of the ministry’s sectors and departments regarding the leave of workers under the “acting capacity” item. It was noted that there were a number of assignees who did not submit leave on the SAP system.
