After the spread of the Corona virus crisis in Kuwait, all sectors of all kinds were affected and the government was forced to take all preventive measures and precautionary measures, as it suspended the work of the public and private sector and suspended public and private schools and universities.

In the same context, the labor sector in Kuwait was affected after the spread of the Corona virus pandemic, and many employment contracts, especially expatriates, were affected. Some companies laid off workers for their inability to pay wages, and the other reduced salaries.

Kuwait decided to impose a complete and comprehensive ban across the country until the end of the month of Ramadan to limit the spread of the Corona virus.

According to sources, the state has approved a government amendment to the labor law in the private sector that allows companies owners to reduce labor wages in light of the Corona pandemic so that they can pay salaries due to the impact of the economic sectors and different areas in the country.
