Saudi labour ministry enforces women-only perfume shop staffing

The Saudi labour ministry has started implementing its decision to ensure all perfume and make-up shops all over the kingdom were women-only, Arab News has reported. The decision to make perfume and accessories shops women-only followed a similar decision that affected lingerie shops. The ministry warned violating shops would be subject to various punitive measures including fines, a ban on recruiting foreign manpower and even closure.
