Companies that fail to join or activate the national address service with Saudi Post will be banned from recruitment, beginning from Dul Qaada 1 (Sept. 7), the Labor Ministry warned on Saturday.
It urged all companies to speed up their efforts to receive the service before the deadline to benefit from its various advantages.
Access to all other services of the ministry would also be linked with postal service activation, beginning Jan. 2, it said. “This measure will also be linked with the Nitaqat system,” it added.
“The acceptance of applications for recruitment will depend on whether the firm has registered or activated the national postal service,” said Labor Minister Adel Fakeih.
The ministry had signed an agreement with Saudi Post to renew and upgrade the addresses of private firms. The postal address will help labor inspectors locate a firm quickly and give it summons in case of a labor dispute. “It will also support the ongoing labor correction process,” the minister said.
Meanwhile, the World Bank said knowledge economy projects in the Kingdom would create 700,000 new jobs.
The bank called for greater investments in knowledge economy to fight unemployment in the Arab region.
