  1. How about us household workers, especially the nannies, 12-15hours of work a day even just a 15minutes nap we cannot do it, is there any chances all kuwaitis will abide this law? I don't think so 🙁

  2. How to complaint to the ministry

  3. A lot of employer not following the labor law especially altajera tower 11 hours duty every day without over time

  4. I hope all the companies can understand this law. Cuz there is some companies if we work only 6hrs the day off will be only 2wice a month. And about holidays they give only half day so hopefully the ministries they can send some people to check about this especially in cosmetics and Fasion it's really bad and we afraid to lose our work.

This is really good for all the workers here in kuwait but some of the employer there not following the rules and regulations, beside the are not interested to follow because they are kuwaiti and they have lot of wasta, even you cant complain in the ministry of labor the employees not untitled to win,
