The Saudi Minister of Justice Waleed Al Samaani revealed that the ministry’s plan for launching the new seven labor courts in seven cities across Saudi Arabia early next year is expected to highly speed up legal processes and save time for clients as they will be all fully digitized, paperless and follow digital procedures.
Samaani said during his visit on Monday to a number of judges on training in the legal training center, that the ministry works hard to provide judges with personal and professional skills to work in labor courts. “These courts will be open for progress and development and will be role models for other courts to follow once proven successful,” Samaani said.
The operation of labor courts early next year will be based on digital transformation, which other courts are currently implementing. The first phase will focus on the launch and operation of labor courts in seven main cities: Riyadh, Mecca, Jeddah, Abha, Dammam, Buraidah and Madinah. In addition to 27 labor support offices in other cities and nine specialized labor offices inside appeals courts across the kingdom.
