Household Service Workers or Domestic Workers in Saudi Arabia are no longer need to suffer non-payment of wages.

This is after the Ministry of Labor and Social Development (MoL) confirmed that domestic workers can transfer to other employers if the current employer is late in paying wages or salaries for three consecutive months.

This is based on 13 ministerial decision of Labor Minister Ali bin Nasser Al-Ghafis that endorsing the transfer of services of domestic workers from their current employer to a new one.




MoL spokesman Khalid Abalkhail gives three instances where domestic workers have the right to transfer his/her service;

1. Failure of employer to pay DH salary for three consecutive months without giving reason to his/her employee

2. When the employer is not present to receive the worker at the port of entry into the country

3. Failure of employer to take a worker from the shelter house within 15 days from the date of arrival

4. Failure of employer to obtain residency permit for his/her employee

5. Failure of employer to renew the expired residency permit within 30 days of the expiry date





6. Workers can transfer from one employer to another in cases where the employer leased the services of the worker to others without the knowledge of the worker or assigning him/her to work for non-relatives of the second degree

7. If a worker was commissioned to perform hazardous tasks that threaten his/her health and safety.

8. If the worker is abused

9. If the worker has a formal complaint against her/her employer

10. Other cases for services transfer include situations where employers file invalid complaints against absent workers; when the employer fails to attend two sessions addressing a complaint filed by the worker; and in cases where the employer is absent either for travel or imprisonment, death or any other reason that resulted in failure to pay wages for three consecutive months.






With this, under the directives, the new employer will pay the transfer fees and costs of sheltering the worker during his/her stay in the shelter house, which amounts to SR150 ($40) per day.
