Saudi labor ministry: No jobs for expats in HR, recruitment
The ministry urged businessmen and employers in the private sector to join in the ministry’s decision making process
Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Labor unveiled plans to restrict to Saudis all jobs related to human resources (HR) as well as positions in the departments dealing with hiring workers in the private sector.
The ministry urged businessmen and employers in the private sector to join in the ministry’s decision making process by putting forward their opinions and suggestions pertaining to implementing its draft decision in this regard.
Naif Naytah, general supervisor of public affairs at the ministry, said the ministry will take the final decision in this regard after taking into consideration the opinions of employers in the private sector.
“The ministry will take punitive measures against any private firms that allow foreigners to work in these jobs directly or indirectly. Fine amounting to SR20,000 will be slapped on firms that hire any foreigner to work in these trades, and the fines will be doubled with the number of foreigners hired for these jobs,” he said.
