The Flexible Work Regulation has been Modified to Increase a Firm’s Monthly Working Hours to 160.

RIYADH Eng. Ahmed Al-Rajhi, Minister of Human Resources and Social Development, decided to amend the Flexible Work Regulation, raising the maximum number of hours a flexible Saudi worker can work in a single facility each month to 160. According to the ministry, the new amendments included modifications to Clause 2 of Article 27 of the Executive Regulations of the Labour Law.

Under the amendments, a complete point for the facility in the Nitaqat Saudization Programme would also be awarded if an individual or group of individuals completed 160 hours of flexible work. Since its introduction, more than 35,000 Saudi men and women have benefited from the flexible work arrangement.

The ministry demonstrated its desire to provide job seekers opportunities and give Saudi workers who want to work more hours a chance to do so by enacting flexible contractual regulations with hourly wages. It also aimed to protect the rights of both sides and increase trust and safety by introducing an electronic employment contract documenting platform for flexible work arrangements.

Flexible Work Regulation has many appealing benefits for businesses and individuals. For example, it prepares job seekers to enter the workforce, gives them the opportunity to practise the professional skills they need, and lowers recruitment expenses.
