Saudi labour authorities have exposed 35 violations of the country’s work system as Saudi Arabia has unveiled drastic reforms set to benefit millions of migrant workers.

The 35 infringements were detected this week in Riyadh by inspection teams affiliated to the Ministry of Human Sources and Social Development.

They conducted 104 inspection visits of commercial enterprises in the region, according to the Saudi news agency SPA.

The tours, which focused on activities targeted with Saudisation of jobs, also resulted in issuing 21 warning notices to other businesses, it added without giving further details.

On Wednesday, Saudi Arabia launched major labour reforms, allowing job mobility and regulating the exit and re-entry visa issuance for expatriate workers without employers’ approval.

The reforms are due to come into effect on March 14, 2021 and will apply to all expatriate workers in the private sector.

Employee mobility will allow expatriate workers to transfer between employers upon the expiry of the binding work contract without the employer’s consent. The exit and re-entry visa reforms will allow expatriate workers to travel outside Saudi Arabia without the employers’ approval after submitting a request.
