2,731 teachers, administrators resigned this year
Acting Head of the Services Termination Department at the Education Ministry Mohammad Matar said the number of employees who resigned and retirees whose transactions have been completed this year reached 2,731 teachers and administrators, including 1,062 citizens and 1,669 non-Kuwaitis. He said the general education sector terminated them for implementation of its replacement policy, adding that 103 Kuwaitis were sent into forced retirement because they completed 34 years of service. He asked expats to submit their resignations three months before the end of the school year so that the Civil Service Commission would not deduct 25 percent from their indemnities.
Social Affairs Ministry assistant undersecretary for legal affairs Abdelaziz Shuaib said there is a rise in the number of cases won by the ministry. He said that this was the result of official adherence to procedures and what the law stipulates to safeguard citizens’ rights.
