KUWAIT CITY, Sept 17: Minister of Oil, Elec­tric­ity and Wa­ter Dr Khalid AlFad­hel is ex­pected to ap­prove the pro­mo­tion of 940 em­ploy­ees in the Min­istry of Elec­tric­ity and Wa­ter on Sun­day, re­ports Al-Qabas daily quot­ing sources from the min­istry.

Sources dis­closed the de­ci­sion will be im­ple­mented retroac­tively start­ing from March 31, clar­i­fy­ing the pro­mo­tion was de­layed due to the corona pan­demic.

Sources added the Fi­nan­cial Af­fairs Sec­tor in the min­istry ap­proved the list of 1,200 em­ploy­ees who got ex­cel­lent per­for­mance rat­ing for the year 2019. Sources ex­plained the per­for­mance eval­u­a­tion of these em­ploy­ees was de­layed due to prob­lems re­lated to the fin­ger­print and un­cer­tain­ties sur­round­ing their com­ple­tion of 180 work­ing hours as per the con­di­tions stip­u­lated by the Civil Ser­vice

Com­mis­sion (CSC).

Sources said the to­tal amount due to these em­ploy­ees is about KD900,000; af­firm­ing the min­istry will send the list to the Cen­tral Bank of Kuwait (CBK) on Wed­nes­day to pave way for the pay­ment of their ex­cel­lent per­for­mance bonus.

Sources re­vealed 34 em­ploy­ees, who sub­mit­ted their griev­ances re­gard­ing their eval­u­a­tion in 2018, will be in­cluded. Sources af­firmed a spe­cial com­mit­tee tasked to look into these griev­ances re­viewed the files of the 34 em­ploy­ees, stress­ing that the de­ci­sion to grant them the bonus is based on the rel­e­vant rules.

Sources went on to con­firm that the sec­tor is also work­ing on the list of night shift em­ploy­ees to pave the way for the pay­ment of their night dif­fer­en­tial. Sources added the list of night shift em­ploy­ees in South Zour Sta­tion was sub­mit­ted two days ago.
