Saudi Arabia gets ready for labor courts early next year


The Kingdom is preparing for labor courts early in 2019


The Ministry of Justice said its plans for the soon-to-be-launched courts are all on track. Judges are being trained, staff are getting proper induction and court buildings are being prepared and connected digitally.
Saudi Arabia has been working hard to push through initiatives that will organize the labor market and help it reach its highest potential, which will eventually boost investment in the Kingdom and drive the economy toward development and achievement of the Vision 2030 objectives.




According to the latest statistics revealed in Q1 2018; there are around 13 million workers in Saudi Arabia (10 million foreign and 3 million locals). These numbers are expected to increase with the ongoing mega projects across the Kingdom and the increasing demand for the labor force


Labor court role will be a major drive toward creating ease and efficiency in conducting projects and ensuring those workers are working within a well-defined system that protects them.


“Labor courts will be connected to all government entities that deal with labor. We have already started studying labor dispute cases from the past few years and building our operational plan,” said the ministry.



”We are looking into achieving four objectives: Boosting investment opportunities, achieving excellence, swiftness of the labor judiciary, and benefiting from the rich databases of the courts.”
