Saudi labor reports are now ‘enforceable documents’

  • These mediation reports can be filed online via the ministry portal without having to visit any court

JEDDAH: Mediation reports issued by the Amicable Settlement Departments of labor offices are now recognized as “enforceable documents” that can be directly filed to the enforcement judiciary, similar to those issued by other mediation entities, the Justice Ministry has announced.
These mediation reports can be filed online via the ministry portal (www.moj.gov.sa) without having to visit any court.
If the report includes financial claims, the enforcement judge issues — after thorough verification of the documents — an invoice that is sent to the debtor’s mobile phone. If they do not settle the invoice within five days, they shall be subject to the penalties in Article 46 of the Enforcement Law, including a travel ban.
It is noteworthy that enforcement courts received 2,704 authenticated mediation reports last year. They are instantly verified by the courts.
Recently, more types of documents were announced by the ministry as “enforceable documents,” including employment contracts. The goal is to protect the rights of all parties and fast-track the resolution of disputes.

First pilgrims leave under Eyab initiative

  • Al-Amoudi toured the exhibition dedicated to welcome Eyab’s beneficiaries

Saudi Minister of Transport and Chairman of the General Authority of Civil Aviation (GACA), Dr. Nabeel Al-Amoudi, oversaw the departure of the first 

group of pilgrims under the Eyab initiative on Saturday together with GACA President Abdulhadi bin Ahmed Al-Mansouri.

Eyab seeks to improve services provided to pilgrims, with the authority aiming to enrich pilgrims’ experience at the Kingdom’s airports. It is expected to benefit 30,000 pilgrims during this year’s Hajj season.

Al-Amoudi toured the exhibition dedicated to welcome Eyab’s beneficiaries, inspected the services available and received a briefing from the initiative’s officials.

GACA started an experimental implementation of Eyab this year, aimed at pilgrims returning to Indonesia, India and Malaysia through Jeddah’s King Abdul Aziz International Airport and Madinah’s Prince Mohammed bin Abdul Aziz Airport.
