This country-specific Q&A provides an overview of Employment & Labour Law laws and regulations applicable in Saudi Arabia.

Our Middle East employment partner, Ben Brown, has authored the Legal 500: Employment & Labour Law Country Comparative Guide for Saudi Arabia.

Local and international organisations with employees in the Kingdom should be aware that the Saudi Ministry of Human Resources and Social Development has consulted on proposed changes to the Saudi Labour Law. The guide will be updated when the amendments to the Saudi Labour Law are confirmed.
