Kuwait: Staff allowed periodic leave by MOH
The Ministry of Health has now allowed its employees to apply for their periodic leave, between 19th July untill 1st October, provided that they haven’t taken a periodic leave during the past six months in accordance with the terms and conditions.
Earlier, when the corona virus pandemic began, the Ministry had stopped its employees from taking their periodic leaves in order to fight the pandemic.
According to the new circular, the leave period does not exceed 14 days. If the leave is spent outside the country, the requirements of public health and the technical management of home quarantine related to health sector workers apply.
The circular also says that the percentage of employees enjoying leave does not exceed 15% of the workforce in any period.
