Kuwait City – The Kuwaiti National Assembly is expected to pass the amended law on the private sector the sessions of March 19 and 20.

Sources described the law as the first legislation to be issued by the National Assembly in favor of expats in nine years.

The new legislation is expected to raise annual leave for 1.7 million expats working in the private sector to 40 days and increase the monthly salary and indemnity by 15 percent, according to specialised economic sources.

This law is among the conciliatory legislations by the government and parliament to strengthen legislative gains despite fears expressed by financial parties that this law will raise the cost of labor in Kuwait and constitutes a burden for some companies.
