Complaint at Ministry of Labour.

Has anyone ever filed a complaint at M/O labour? I would like to know the procedure involved in the kingdom? Please share your part of the story if you have experienced to be Martin Luther king..

The reason you did not get any answer is probably because everyone believes its of no use and the decision will go in favor of local employer, the only remedy you will get is a exit.

my cousins's sponsor labeleld him as ran away, he filed a complaint in (Imaara, Ameer's office) they treated him like local, he faced the Ameer, but the secretary told him not to open your mouth, Ameer saw the documents and write to name of Maktab Amal (as per system) after several months end of story with his exit, what he benefited from it he was able to receive his final rights.

somehow yes it will go in favor of local employer. why ? because the ministry/court will say to the employee and emploer that sit and settle the case, and definitely employer will say to employee that you drag me here, now you have to go.

All the registration in the company expired and he did not renew..there is no. Health insurance ,,baladiya permit expired..

Long story short, you only go to MOL to register a complaint when you have decided that this is it for you in KSA. 99.9% cases I have come across have been disasters for the people who filed a complaint. End of the day you are an expatriate in KSA where locals have higher rights and will be given 10 times more preference than you.

Even if the outcome is in your favor, you will be leaving the country sooner or later becuase of it. So it is advised in general cases to sort out the disputes outside MOL. Because once you file the complaint, you do not know how long you will have to wait. You will neither be allowed to work nor leave the country unless there is an outcome. A very simple trend followed by the locals is to skip the hearing dates in MOL and keep you waiting and force you to take your complaint back. You will waste your money, time and efforts for nothing.

as per Nitagat law, you have the right to apply for work in other companies that are in the highest Nitaqat category. your employer can not say no to that. Good luck.

hi, good afternoon to everyone..i'm working on my employer in a CLINIC here in RIYADH as a RECEPTIONIST.. my salary is only 1,700SR w/out a regular off.. my OFF once a month only and i'm a muslim.. he's cutting my iqama and insurance from my salary which i know that all employer must provide iqama and insurance for free..now it's raining time our room is full of water, we're living at the top of our clinic.. our moder is sooo baaad. our location is between exit 8 and 9 king bin alwaleed street. dhurrat ghornata medical complex. the name of our employer is ABU-HESHAM ALMUTAIRE, small salary,delayed salary,cut for iqama,insurance.. i tot working here in kingdom will change mylife.. being far away from ur family is too difficult but as an OFW we need to sacrifice for the sake of our Family, they should treat there workers in a nice way for it would be the only remembrance that we can kept at the end of our contract/services to them. SUBHANALLAH! the end of the world is coming very soon.. i expect a lot specially knowing that i will work in arabs country, a muslims country.. but it's totally opposite of what i've expect from my employer.. he's so BAD...

A friend of mine had some issues with his employer. One day on a fine morning all of a sudden employer gave passport and ticket to his country. He was shocked and not prepared obviously... so he went to Ministry office and filed a complaint, after li'l more than 6 months he got his final rights and compensation of 100k Riyals..
Note: he was Egyptian and all I know is he regularly visited the place where he was called on given date by ministry.

It is ok if your employer force you to another job that is not stated in your contract,for example you are a nurse in a clinic and that clinic sent you as company nurse in 1 compnay as rental,and without increase...it is legal???

Regardless of all comments, I will start from the last sentence you said "if you have experienced to be Martin Luther king"

Unfortunately, all comments are based on SAYING, STEREOTYPING, wrong information, etc.

From my experience as a Saudi Licensed  attorney I believe that employees always give up their rights based on saying!!! (like the comments above) which is 100% wrong info.

Filing a complaint/case at MOL is like filing any case in any court where you need to submit  a memo including the topic of your case, evidence and lastly your claims. Meanwhile, when filing a complaint, do not expect the judgment will be released within days or weeks, it will take months going through three stages. However, many people do not know if you file a proper case and your company stopped paying you for any reason, you legally still find another employer and work with him until the end of your case.

Moreover, Some people believe the judgments always on the company or local favor which is totally not correct because the judgment's favor will be for the one who submit proper claims with the supporting evidence regardless of the parties.

If you have claims with no evidence such as paper, mails, contracts, etc, how do you think you will win the case. ( no claims' evidence no favoring judgment)


I hope my answer helped you all for your future reference.

this is extremely false information and people do not follow the proper procedure to get their rights, thats why they never do, or follow they  false statements as such

Define 'force''. Did your manager physically dragged you out of the clinic to another place? Were you threatened physical or verbally? If yes, leave.

If not, It is legal.

Your company as a business will have their own hospitals and clinics. Other than having their own business they also enter into contracting the medical and health requirements of another company. This means, that Company Y (your company) was hired by Company X  to provide medical and health services in their location. This is called customer centric/customer care, the patients will no longer go to your clinic/hospital because your company will have a clinic in their office (CompanyX). It's called one stop shop.

But you should request for allowance if you think you are entitled.

Broaden up your mind. Inside the biggest telecom complex in Riyadh, you will find travel agencies, banks, clinics, restaurants, Donuts, cafe shops, insurance companies etc. The employees of this biggest telecom don't have to go out of the complex, they only go the building where there are restaurants, travel agencies, clinics, banks to do business. Also government branches example MOI office is inside the complex.
