As per Article 71 of the Labour Law, the worker is under obligation to compensate the employer for damage, loss or destruction to machinery, products or equipment of the establishment as a result of his fault provided that the obligation of the worker for the compensation shall be preceded by an enquiry. The employer may deduct the value of the compensation from the wages provided that the value of the compensation does not exceed the wages due to the worker for seven days in one month. by gulf times.
