Saudi labour law amended to lure citizens to private sector
- Saudi Arabia: Tuesday, March 12 - 2013 at 06:03
The Saudi Shoura Council is set to issue soon an amended Labour Law that would allow private sector employees to enjoy five-day week like their counterparts in the public sector, Saudi Gazette has reported, citing an informed source. "The Shoura is currently finalizing amendments to 20 articles of the Labour Law to fix weekly working hours of employees in the private sector," the source said. The labour ministry had previously reached an agreement with businesses to reduce the weekly working hours from 48 to 45, in a bid to encourage Saudi youths to work in the private sector.
