Thanks for all the replies and guidance provided to the readers through your Legal Clinic column. My wife is working as a nurse for the Ministry of Health (MOH) and I just want to know why the maternity holidays policy for ministry staff (30 days) and private companies staff (45) is different. Is there different maternity policy/ article for ministry and nonministry staff.

Name withheld 
Answer: First of all we would like to make clear that there is a lot of difference between the Kuwait Labor Law for the Private Sector and the rules that govern the working conditions of all those working for the government ministries.

There is a further difference in the policy for the ministry staff and the staff of the private companies working in the government sector. The maternity leave for those working in the private sector is 70 days but for those in the government sector this leave depends on the individual contracts and in most cases this is 30 days.

For the private companies staff, if they are working in a ministry, it again depends on the terms and conditions agreed between the ministry and the company. You have, however, to remember that if the residence of the employee remains with the private company and not transferred to the ministry for the duration of the contract, the employee’s leave will be 70 days. So, as you see there is a difference in the maternity leave in different cases.
