Saturday, 07 18 2020, Category: Economy, Country: Saudi Arabia
Saudi Arabia's Cabinet has recently given its approval for the implementation of an insurance product to protect the rights and benefits of non-Saudi workers in the private sector. The decision includes that the state will bear the costs of applying the insurance product.
Minister of Human Resources and Social Development Ahmed Al-Rajhi extended his thanks and appreciation to Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman and Crown Prince Muhammad Bin Salman for their approval.
"The product targets non-Saudi workers in private sector facilities in the Kingdom, which will contribute to preserving workers' rights if they are stalled and reduces the risk of any negative effects if companies collapse," Al-Rajhi said.
Al-Rajhi explained that the product's approval is an embodiment of the high interest the Kingdom pays to the private sector enterprises and to enhance its role as a major partner in developing the Saudi economy and providing more job opportunities.
