Less Working Hours for Pregnant Women - Civil Service Commission
Category: Kuwait Local News

The Civil Service Commission (CSC) issued a directive concerning law number 21/2015 pertaining with children’s rights, highlighting three major points. The first point stipulates that ‘upon employer approval, a working mother is to be given a two-year unpaid leave to look after her baby a maximum of three times throughout her service’. The directive added that the leave will not be interrupted before it was over and that it will not affect other leaves.

The second point in the directive tackled article 54 of the law that calls for reducing pregnant women’s working hours by at least two hours starting from the sixth month. It also bans having pregnant women work overtime throughout the pregnancy. The third point in the directive tackled entitling working mothers two hours to breastfeed their babies during the first two years of the baby’s age without reducing their wages.
