Kuwaiti Lady Doctor To Receive KD 500 Monthly Housing Allowance Right Upheld
Category: Kuwait Local News

In a unique judgment, the Administrative Court of Appeals dismissed a lower court’s verdict and upheld the right of a Kuwaiti lady doctor to receive KD 500 monthly housing allowance for the ‘married’ category retroactively from 4/2/2010, and the sum in arrears is valued at KD 38,000. On behalf of the lady doctor, Attorney Misfar Al-Ajmi said his client, who’s employed by the Ministry of Health, joined Ministry of Finance and Civil Service Commission to sue the employer.

He noted his client was appointed in year 2000 by the ministry as PhD holder in Gynecology and Obstetrics, and she married a Kuwaiti employee of an unspecified oil company. He explained that his client and the husband did not enjoy any official housing allocation from the government.

Therefore, she is entitled to housing loan for married people in line with Decision No. 5/2010 concerning employment and salaries of Kuwaiti physicians and dentists applicable from the date of appointment. He argued that his client is entitled to rent allowance even if her husband receives housing allowance from the oil company.
