Kuwait DBA Workers Do Not Receive DBA Benefits Because They Do Not Know About the Defense Base Act.
Many times, injured DBA workers and their families don't get medical treatment and compensation because they were never informed of their rights to receive DBA benefits. Widows and children have also not received DBA death benefits because they didn't know they were entitled to Defense Base Act benefits.
Most DBA Employers Do Not Meet Their Obligation To Make Kuwait DBA Workers Aware Of Their Rights Under the DBA
The Defense Base Act system relies on DBA companies to make employees aware of insurance coverage and to report deaths and injuries to insurers and the federal government. But most DBA employers have not met those obligations.
Who is covered under DBA?
The Defense Base Act covers the following employment activities:
Work for private employers on U.S. military bases or on any lands used by the U.S. for military purposes outside of the United States, including those in U.S. Territories and possessions;
Work on public work contracts with any U.S. government agency, including construction and service contracts in connection with national defense or with war activities outside the United States;
Work on contracts approved and funded by the U.S. under the Foreign Assistance Act, which among other things provides for cash sale of military equipment, materials, and services to its allies, if the contract is performed outside of the United States;
Work for American employers providing welfare or similar services outside the United States for the benefit of the Armed Services, e.g. the United Service Organizations (USO).
If any one of the above criteria is met, all employees engaged in such employment, regardless of nationality (including U.S. citizens and residents, host country nationals (local hires), and third country nationals (individuals hired from another country to work in the host country), are covered under the Act.
