The consequences for a worker’s absence from work are subject to the agreement of the two parties (Employer and Worker) or to what is specified in the company’s internal regulations, according to the Saudi Arabian Ministry of Human Resources and Social Development.
The Ministry emphasized that one of the legal rights granted to workers is medical insurance.

  • Article 144 of the Saudi Labor Law states that employers are required to provide their employees with preventive and curative healthcare, while also taking into account the provisions of the Cooperative Health Insurance Law.
  • the Ministry of Human Resources received a question about a company’s or institution’s right to penalize an employee financially for being absent from work for an extended period of time.

The Work Law excludes salary stabilization:

Salary fixation is not covered by the Work Law or Labor Law, according to the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Development, because it is governed by the internal policies of the employer.

The Ministry stated that the salaries and benefits are contingent upon the agreement between the Employer and Employee in the employment contract or what is outlined in the facility’s internal regulations.

The Ministry responded to a question posed by a user on its Twitter account by asking, “I work for a private company, and I requested that they fix my pay, but they refused. Do I have the right to complain about them?”
