Saudi Ministry of Manpower and Social Welfare has said that employers cannot change workers’ salaries without their consent and written approval. They can also file a complaint in case they have any Labor issues.
Employers cannot cut your pay without your consent
The ministry has stated in response to an employee’s complaint about a pay cut by an agency.
According to the emergency website, an employee posted a complaint on the official account of the Ministry of Manpower. “His salary has reduced without asking. What is Saudi law?”
The Ministry of Manpower responded by saying, “The salary of any worker cannot differ from contract or agreement. Also, an employer cannot deduct the salary of a worker without his written approval and consent.”
Suppose someone’s employment contract is terminated on an illegal basis, or the company’s employer starts giving less pay or deducting some percentage of income without the worker’s consent. In that case, the affected person can file a claim against it.
