No fairness in the implementation of Medical Council Law; influence used
Female teachers said abuse exemptions
KUWAIT CITY, Nov 10: The implementation of Medical Council Law that reduces the rate of work for caregivers of handicapped people and children and employees who are still in the period of maternity has been disrupting the activities of schools due to the fact that many staff have been using influence, and there is no fairness in the implementation of law to the extent that all female teachers in a certain department have been unduly enjoying the privilege, reports Al-Rai daily.
The daily quoting a source affirmed the importance of clarifying from Civil Service Commission (CSC) needs about legal calculation of the hours of exemption allowed by the Ministry of Education (two hours for the Medical Council, handicap welfare, maternity and child care). He explained the technical nature of female teachers’ job in their schools is different from those of other employees. He stressed that law must spell out the number of lessons that should be taught in 45 minutes to reduce the rate of shortage of teachers.
