The Ministry of Labor has set up grievance committees where domestic workers can file their complaints.

Grievances and complaints can be submitted to the committees in various regions of the Kingdom through a form which can be obtained through the ministry’s Domestic Labor Program website www.musaned.gov.sa.

The Ministry of Labor’s Musaned (Support) website lists rights and duties of domestic helpers and employers, gives the names and contact numbers of recruitment offices in different regions of the Kingdom, provides details about the recruitment stages and documents required. The website contains a comprehensive brochure in various languages.

The Kingdom signed domestic labor agreements with the Philippines, India, Indonesia, Sri Lanka in recent months. The ministry also announced the resumption of domestic labor recruitment from Nepal.

Philippine Labor Attaché Rustico Dela Fuente reminded embassy and labor personnel about the website at a seminar.

“The seminars are part of our efforts to ensure our Embassy personnel are fully equipped to help our nationals within the framework of the local laws,” Philippine Ambassador to Saudi Arabia Ezzedin Tago said.

“We must constantly and regularly update our personnel on changes in laws and regulations that affect our nationals especially on the international level, and within the Kingdom and the Philippines,” he added.

“We are doing this first at the level of our personnel before our officials embark on some outreach missions to update our nationals on laws that affect them.”
