Saudi Arabia: Ministry of Labour and Social Development Decision No. 88478 dated 1439H regarding Labour Law violations and penalties

The revised table sets out the penalties employers can expect to be subject to in the event they violate specific provisions of the Labour Law. By way of example, employers who allow non-Saudi employees to work in a role other than the one specified in their work permit will be subject to a fine of SAR 10,000. The fines imposed by the Ministry of Labour and Social Development must be settled by employers within one month of the issuance date, failing which the amount due to the Ministry will be doubled. Furthermore, the table is subject to change, and may be amended as and when required in line with the labour market requirements. The Decision came into force on 9 February 2018.
