Kuwait: 50% of expats working for subcontracting companies to be laid off

Pink slips are already out for many expatriates working on contracts in Kuwaiti ministries, especially those employed in non-technical fields, as the country gradually returns to normal life after coronavirus lockdowns, Arab Times reported.

However, expatriates working as experts in the ministries will be terminated gradually in a way not affecting the workflow, according to the report.

It is expected that more than 50 percent of expatriates working for subcontractors will be laid off in the next three months as Kuwaitization gathers momentum, the report stressed.

Meanwhile, all expatriates working directly in ministries will be terminated and many of them have already been shifted to companies which are subcontractors for government ministries, the report claimed.
