Saudi Gazette, 13 November 2023: Saudi Arabia’s Human Resources and Social Development Ministry has urged private sector entities to complete the employment contract documentation procedures for their Saudi and non-Saudi employees via the Ministry’s Qiwa platform.
The Ministry has specified the compliance percentages required by establishments in terms of contract documentation, based on the total number of employees the establishment has.
- 20% of contract documentation had to be completed by the end of the first quarter of this year.
- 50% of contract documentation had to be completed by the second quarter of this year.
- 80% of contract documentation had to be completed by the third quarter of this year.
Only those establishments who completed 80% or more of contract documentation by the end of the third quarter will be able to benefit fully from the Ministry’s services.
The contract documentation service enables employers to upload and update employee contract information in an automated and easy way.
It also allows employees to verify the validity of their contract data. If both parties agree, the contract will be considered documented and approved by the Ministry.
