According to the details Kuwait’s Public Authority for Manpower announced the automatic suspension of registration of companies that do not pay salaries on time.
Companies that fail to remit their workers’ salaries on time will have their files automatically suspended.
According to the statement of the department, if the salaries are not transferred within seven days after the due date, the companies will face suspension, the employees of the suspended companies may be renewed or transferred to another employer.
