Why Don’t Kuwait Workers Get DBA Benefits?
Honestly, most of the time it is because Kuwait civilian contractors don’t know about DBA benefits. A lot of the time injured workers covered by the DBA don’t get the medical treatment or financial compensation they are entitled to because they didn’t know those benefits existed. So, they don’t end up going after those benefits and fighting the DBA insurance companies for what they deserve.
A Lot of DBA Employers Do Not Make Kuwait Workers Aware Of their DBA Rights
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.
