Verbal termination of employee is a violation to the labor law
Termination should be done through official letter with 90 days termination period
Kuwait: An employer or company has no right to verbally terminate any employee for any reason, Acting Director of the Public Authority for Manpower Abdullah Al-Mutawtah said.
The labor law in the private sector stipulates that termination should be done through an official letter signed by the employer and has a specified date, while an employee is given the legal 90 days’ termination period, he explained.
“Verbal termination is a violation to the labor law, and such practice is subject to punishment according the law,” he explained. — Al-Anbaa
