Riyadh — MHRSD, the Saudi Ministry of Human Resources and Social Development, has asked all establishments to issue their Labor Policies through the Qiwa app.
According to MHRSD. The Labor Policies service aims to organize workplace conditions and reduce conflicts.
The service also helps to lessen any labor conflicts between the employee and his employer. The service will aid each person’s understanding of their rights, obligations, and duties.
The Customized Labor Policy and the Standard Labor Policy are two different Saudi labor laws.
The Standard Policy is per the Labor Policy’s unified form. It does not require approvals. That is how they differ from one another.
Through the Qiwa platform, this policy can get promptly issued and authorized. There cannot be more than 50 employees in the establishment.
The Saudi Standard Labor Policy permits small changes to the process by establishments. Such as the Gregorian-Hijri annual calendar, the leave system, the regular and seasonal business hours.
The workdays, the weekly rest days, the completion of the necessary steps up until approval, and exporting an electronic certificate to that.
Customized labor policies are only applicable to businesses with 50 or more employees.
These establishments are permitted to add additional terms, conditions, and clauses to the procedure. That includes bonuses, yearly increments, infractions, and other clauses.
The Saudi Labor Law’s provisions, administrative rules, and the decisions made following it must not conflict with any terms and conditions added by the establishments to the Customized labor policy.
The Ministry stated that law firms or offices accredited to it review the Customized Saudi labor policy. That guarantees it does not clash with any sections of the Labor Law.
Or conflict with its Executive Regulations or the decisions made to put such provisions into effect. The policy will then be approved and sent to the Ministry per the established processes.
