Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Human Resources and Social Development (MHRSD) will shortly implement a new law governing the work method, rights, and responsibilities of domestic employees and others in the Kingdom.

Domestic employees are now entitled to one day of rest each week, 30 days of annual vacation, 30 days of sick leave, and end-of-service compensation under the new rule.

The new bylaw prohibits employers from hiring domestic employees under the age of 21 and putting them to work for anyone other than their sponsors or performing tasks not mentioned in the labor contract or on the iqama.Saudi Arabia has announced the discovery of new natural gas resources.

The new rule covers all aspects of the labor contract, as well as the procedures for terminating it. It also covers the rights of both the employee and the employer, as well as their responsibilities to one another.

The new regulations’ paragraphs defined the relationship between the domestic worker and the employer by requiring a formal work contract and documenting it on the ministry’s internet platform.

The contract should state the terms agreed upon by the two parties in a way that does not conflict with the provisions of the regulations defining the type of work that the domestic worker is required to perform, the wage that the employer is required to pay the worker, and the rights and responsibilities of both parties.
