Minister says decision soon on unpaid private sector wages



Minister of Social Affairs Mariam Al-Aqeel said yesterday she is currently considering how to deal with private sector employers who have not paid their staff. “We will not take long to issue a decision on how to deal with this wrong situation, because how can employees meet their financial commitments if they don’t get paid,” the minister said on Kuwait TV. The issue concerns thousands of expatriate workers who make up the overwhelming majority of the private sector workforce.

The ministry has the power to force employers to pay wages and can use the guarantee money deposited with the ministry to pay unpaid wages. Businesses in Kuwait as well as all over the world have been hit hard by the shutdowns and curfews due to the coronavirus, rendering many small businesses helpless in coping with the difficult financial situation.
