I had worked for a reputed private company in Kuwait for 14 years and resigned 2 years ago while the company got renamed and was filing for bankruptcy. Though I waited for 5 months after my last working day, my service benefits were not paid. Then I filed a labor case through a reputed lawyer’s firm in Kuwait City and left Kuwait. Recently I came back to Kuwait in another company. As confirmed by my lawyer, I got final court verdict and my case is in execution stage for the past 6 months. But my previous company is not paying my service benefits. In this regard, kindly advice the way forward to get my legitimate money.
NB: I could not find similar case in the archives of ‘Arab Times’, hence kindly provide your valuable legal advice through ‘Arab Times’ which is reader friendly and especially beneficial for expatriates as a whole.
Answer: You won the case and as you said it is at the execution stage and by this we understand it to mean that the issue has now been taken up by the Sentences Enforcement Department. If our assumption is right, our advice to you is that you put pressure on your lawyer to follow up the case to make sure that the court verdict is carried out with the ultimate aim of you getting what is due to you.
