Saudi Arabia set for launch of labor courts

  • Labor courts will be connected to all government entities that deal with labor
  • There are around 10 million foreign and 3 million locals in Saudi Arabia

JEDDAH: The Ministry of Justice and the Ministry of Labor and Social Development are completing final arrangements to launch labor courts and departments.
A joint team has been formed to complete arrangements to transfer jurisdiction of labor cases to the general judiciary.
Through this partnership, the Ministry of Justice said it aims to achieve judicial excellence in labor courts and departments.
This, it added, will positively affect the labor market, reduce the length of litigation and achieve digital integration in labor courts.
The team will complete the technical, organizational, judicial and administrative requirements for the launch. It will also identify and innovate performance indicators to ensure the smooth functioning of the partnership.
The forthcoming labor courts and departments will be one of the most important pillars in helping to raise the Kingdom’s classification in international indices, the Ministry of Justice said.
These courts aim to enhance investment opportunities in the Kingdom through the establishment of justice in the business sector.
