RIYADH — Saudi Arabia's Cabinet last week approved two amendments in the Labor Law related to women’s work in hazardous jobs and at night.

Sources told Okaz/Saudi Gazette that the amendments pertained to abrogation of Articles 149 and 150 of the Labor Law related to the prohibition of employment of women in some dangerous occupations and some period of time during night.

Article 149 states that it is forbidden to employ women in dangerous and harmful occupations and jobs, and the minister would specify the occupations and jobs considered dangerous or harmful and would expose women to specific dangers or harms so as to prohibit their work in such jobs or restrict them under special conditions.”

Article 150 states that women shall not be employed in a period of time during night that is not less than 11 consecutive hours, except in cases in which a decision is issued by the minister.

Sources clarified that the new amendments included the addition of an article, of which the order is 131, which stipulates that the minister determines — by his decision — the professions that are considered dangerous or harmful or that would expose the worker to extraordinary dangers or damages.

The minister determines the categories, which are prohibited permanently or temporarily from employing in them or allow to employ therein, under special conditions.
