No right to fire employees


Many workers have lost their jobs since the country went on a coronavirus lockdown. Kuwait imposed a partial curfew and closed its borders, airports and businesses. Also suspended schools, many people faced unfair actions. Mohammad Al-Jasem is a lawyer and an Interpol-accredited expert in international law enforcement cooperation. Many employers have terminated their workers due to the current situation. Jasem said an employer has no right to fire his employees according to article 41 of the labor law. The law affirms that the employer cannot terminate the services of a worker without notice. Otherwise he must offer compensation in recognition of his loss.

Unless the worker has committed a mistake that resulted in a large loss for the employer. If violated the contract, the employer cannot just fire the worker. If the employer terminated the worker for no obvious reason. The employee shall be entitled to end-of-service benefits and compensation for the material and moral damages suffered.

Regarding some cases where employers forced some employees to sign a paper giving up their financial rights. Jasem said that the employer does not have the right to do so and it is legally void. In many labor cases, this has been considered. The verdict was in favor of the employee despite the existence of such a paper. Likewise, the employer does not have the right to cut or suspend salaries. Employers have to pay wages in full throughout the period of suspension. As long as the employer wishes to continue working with the employee. This is according to article 61 of the labor law.


Hence every employee should be satisfied in these days as Kuwait law supports them and their jobs. The employer has no right to fire them due to coronavirus. They should remain calm and satisfy and in case of any mishappening, they should launch a complaint at a suitable forum. Govt of Kuwait is fair enough for every citizen and resident. The Govt authorities will take strict action against any employer who will fire employees due to the current epidemic. What do you think, please reply with your valuable comments?
