Within (90) days as of the arrival date of the worker in the Kingdom, the employer must obtain a work permit and resident permit for the recruited worker. Failure to do so, the employer shall be deemed responsible to pay penalties accordingly. And the work conducted by the worker, in this case, is in violation of the Law and the decisions regulating the recruitment of non-Saudi Workers in such circumstances may report this case to the concerned Labor Office in order to make the necessary procedures towards the employer.
Work permit is issued for one or two years renewable for the same period of validity with the approval of the employer and the worker for renewal. In this case, the work permit should immediately be renewed upon expiry – if the employer fails to renew the work permit and the resident permit, the applicable penalties to those who violate the laws of residence and labor shall be imposed on that employer.
Whereas the worker is the one aggrieved for not renewing such permit, he/she shall ask the employer to renew the work permit and the resident permit as long as the work relation remained on going. If the employer did not respond to that, the worker should report this to the concerned labor office to make the proper procedures towards the employer.
