KUWAIT CITY: Minister of Commerce and Industry, Abdullah Al-Salman, revealed the suspension of disbursement of labor support to 2,607 citizens during 4 months from January 1 to April 30, 2021.

Al-Salman said this in response to the query submitted by MP Marzouq Al-Khalifa.

He said support for 1,779 was suspended citing resignation of the employee, and 11 because of their registration as students according to government data.

He added, the reason for stopping support for 601 was due to the expiration of the work permit.

Regarding stopping employment support, the minister explained that the fifth article of Cabinet Resolution No. 391 of 2001 about granting social allowance and children’s allowance to professionals and craftsmen and workers in non-governmental institutions include conditions for disbursing financial support, and Article 9 of the resolution speaks of suspension of the disbursement of that support.

The disbursement is suspended immediately in implementation of the provisions of the aforementioned Council of Ministers decision in the event one of the conditions for disbursement set forth in Article V are violated, or one of the suspensions mentioned in Article IX of the aforementioned decision becomes available.
