KUWAIT CITY, March 14: Kuwait’s cabinet is allowing employees across state bodies to exchange unused vacation days for cash, government spokesman Tareq Al-Merzem said on Monday, citing a draft law on the matter. The cabinet has given the thumbs up to the draft law, as “per the directives” of His Highness the Prime Minister Sheikh Khaled Al-Hamad Al-Sabah, the spokesman told KUNA.
The draft law comes with certain provisos, whereby only those who have had at least five years of service under their belt, in addition to a month’s worth of unused vacation days, are entitled to the payout, he clarified. (KUNA)
