Indemnity For Working 3 Yrs And Below
Category: Legal

I am a new reader of the Legal Clinic. Now I am not able to clear my doubts on indemnity, and I need your help in solving my problem. I have been working in a company for 1 year and 9 months and I am about to resign after completing my 2 years contract on January 27, 2017. My salary is KD 85 as a cook, and I need to know how much indemnity I will get in the end … and also I need a hand to help me on a step by step procedure with regards to this matter.

Answer: From your letter it seems that you are on an unlimited time contract otherwise you would not have mentioned resigning and talked only about completion of contract. If this is the case then you will get nothing as indemnity unless you complete three years service.

On the other hand, if you were on a fixed-time 2-year contract then you will get indemnity as per your contract. You have not mentioned the terms of your contract.

But most likely it will be as per the Labor Law.

If this is the case, you will get 15 days salary for each of the two years of contract.

So, 30 days pay but these will be first divided by 26 (working days in a month) = 1.15 months pay = 1.15 x 85 = KD 97.75.

You would get the full above amount if you were on a fixed-time contract as resignation doesn’t figure in where such contracts are concerned.
