Al Markaz assisted an International Oil & Gas Co. in implementing its international employment policies in Kuwait

1-Al Markaz assisted an International Oil & Gas company in implementing its international employment policies for Kuwaiti and foreigners employees for the company’s branch in the Kuwait, in compliance with Kuwaiti laws and regulations. Initially, this entailed providing the company with a clear and complete image regarding the difference in implementing the Private Sector Employment Law (Law no. 6 of 2010) and Oil & Gas Sector Employment Law (Law no. 28 of 1969), and assisting the company with the implementation of its pension scheme for both Kuwaiti and foreigners employees in compliance with the Kuwaiti laws.

Secondly, our team legally assisted the client in administrating the company’s rights by avoiding double payment of End of Service Indemnity by reviewing and redrafting the company’s policy & employee handbook, as well as drafting employment agreements to be executed between the company (local branch) and all employees (Kuwaiti and foreigners)

Finally, at the implementation stage, our team advised and acted on behalf of the company with regards to the submission of the company policy and employee handbook to the Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs for their approval, as required by law.
