    • The worker deserves 15 days indemnity during the first five years, and increases to one month after the first five years.
    • An employee who resigns, but does not complete three years with the employer, does not deserve an indemnity.
    • But if the employee completes three to five years and resigns, the employee then deserves half of the indemnity, if he completes five to 10 years, then he deserves two-thirds of the indemnity.
    • If the worker completes 10 years of work then resigns, he deserves full indemnity which is one month salary for each year spent at work, according to Article 51 of Labor Law in the private sector, and should not exceed 18 months.

What is Remuneration ?

“Remuneration means the basic payment the worker receives or should receive in consideration of his work in addition to all the elements stipulated in the contract or the employer by-laws. “Without prejudice to the social allowance and the children’s allowance granted by the virtue of Law 19 of the year 2000, the remuneration shall include the payments made to the worker on periodic basis such as bonuses, benefits, allowances, grants, endowments or cash benefits”. According to the Kuwait Labor Law, must be calculated according to your remuneration and not on your basic pay.

  9. Krig79 says:

    If one is terminated by employer that last should pay 3 months grace period with indemnities when cancelling or transferring residency or on a monthly basis?

  10. Calculator is wrong here or may be i misinterpret it. Last line in rules explains that “If the worker completes 10 years of work then resigns, he deserves full indemnity which is one month salary for each year spent at work, according to Article 51 of Labor Law in the private sector, and should not exceed 18 months.” but if you calculate it both weather you resign or no calculation shows first 5 years 15 days salary per year and remaining years 1 month salary per year

    example : your salary if 800 and worked for 18 years. Amount should be 800 x 18 = 14400 K.D.
    but your calculator shows Indemnity amount 12707.692
    Please check and update your calculator or change the rules.

    • Mohammed says:

      I am not 100% sure about the article but below is what i know;

      First 5 years : 1/2 Salary (800KWD/2 = 400 KWD, 5 years x 400 KWD = 2000 KWD)
      Rest of the years : Full Salary (800 KWD x 13 years = 10400 KWD)
      Total Indemnity For 18 Years = 12400KWD (The calculator is showing almost the near value)

    I started with 150 till 3 years.
    Then 200 for next 2 years and finally reached 500 for 1 year..
    How can i calculate indemnity total??

    • Mohammed says:

      If you resign : 1293.577 KWD

    how much my indemnity on completed 5 years on my previous company. my salary is 185 k.d. for 12 hours duty until completing my 5 years contract.

  14. Mirza says:

    staff salary 615 worked 20.5 years.

    1st five years comes 1774.038

    2nd Step (18-5) = 13 * 615 = 7995

    balance 2.5 * 615 = 1537.5

    Total = 11306.538 is it correct calculation for 18 years Indemnity or not.

  29. Calculation is wrong. Example a person earns 80 kwd , worked for 18 years.

    80 * 2.5 = 200 ( 1 – 5 years )
    80 * 13 = 1040 ( 5 – 18 years )

    Total —– 1240 .

    The app calculates 1270.769 . Which is totally wrong. Its my believe that they have taken 26 days as a whole month which is wrong.
