1). What is legal way to work as a part-timer in any company?

2). An employee of a company wants to work as a part timer in another company … so what documents he/she should keep with him/ her, to show the authorities, that he/ she is doing the part-time job legally.

Answer: There has been a lot of news on this issue over the years, up to the point that the Manpower Authority announced in December 2014 that from 2015 expatriates in the private sector would be allowed to take up part-time jobs and all they would need is permission from their sponsors.

This issue had earlier surfaced in 2012 without any result and the decision of the Minister of Social Affairs and Labor on the issue is still being awaited … one and a half years after the proposal on the issue was announced.

So far, only expatriates in the government sector are allowed to take up part-time in the private sector and all they need is permission from their department heads at the ministry.

On the other hand, Kuwaitis in both the public and private sector are allowed to take up part-time employment provided they have permission from their department heads at the ministries or their sponsors if they are working in the private sector.
