I’m a non-Muslim working woman, working for the same company for 28 years. My husband passed away while I was on my annual leave. In the Labor Law, article 77 it is mentioned the “The non-Muslim working woman, whose husband has died shall be entitled to a paid leave of 21 days”. Can you please advise me if I’m entitled for such leave.
Answer: You quoted the labor law correctly and as a non- Muslim working woman you are entitled to 21 days paid leave which should be distinct from your annual leave just as maternity leave is distinct from the annual leave. You can therefore apply for the 21 days after exhausting your annual leave and returning to Kuwait
