The Shoura Council on Monday urged the Ministry of Civil Service to appoint women to top positions in the ministry in line with the ministry’s 2020 Vision.

The council also asked the ministry to work on the execution of a royal order to standardize the salary structures in all ministries and government departments.

The council also discussed the amendments to some articles of the labor laws to boost the efficiency of the locals in the private sector and ensure adequate compensation in case of termination of the contract without any reason.

Many Shoura members supported raising compensations for employees at the time of dismissal from work. They also called for increasing the notice period to 90 days. The council also approved two memorandums of understanding between Riyadh and Seoul pertaining to money laundering, terror financing and intellectual property.
