JEDDAH: At least 30 recruitment offices will begin offering services to recruit domestic workers in the coming weeks as part of the initial phase of the project, according to the spokesman of the Ministry of Labor, Khalid Aba Al-Khail.
The salaries, the spokesman said, will be considered as per one’s nationality, as also an agreement signed by the ministry to regulate the salary structure.
He said this system contributes to the verification of services and increases competitiveness between the offices in order to improve the services offered to clients.
