JEDDAH – The Labor Office received a number of complaints last week including two cases of mass terminations, one of which involved female workers at a factory, Qussay Filali, Director of the Labor Office in Jeddah, said.
In the termination cases, the parties will be summoned for questioning, an investigation will be conducted and measures will be taken against the companies if their actions violated regulations, Filali said.
He added that the Labor Office also received three complaints about delays in payment of salaries, which is a clear violation of the law and punishable by a fine.
Al-Filali said the Labor Office has also received enquiries from non-Muslim employees asking about daily working hours during Ramadan. He said he answered that workers are required to work six hours per day during the holy month. – Okaz/SG
