Saudi Arabia’s labour ministry has approved new rules allowing domestic workers to transfer and their dependents to transfer to a new employer.

Under the new measures, reported by Saudi Press Agency, housemaids, drivers and other workers can transfer under a number of circumstances.

These include verification that the sponsor has failed to pay the worker for three consecutive or separate months, if the sponsor failed to receive the worker upon their arrival in the kingdom or did not receive them in temporary accommodation 15 days after their arrival.
