JEDDAH: The Saudi Minister of Justice Waleed Al-Samaani has revealed that the ministry plans to launch seven new labor courts in seven cities across Saudi Arabia early next year.
This is expected to highly speed up the legal process and save time for clients as they will all be fully digitized, paperless and follow digital procedures.
Al-Samaani said during his visit yesterday to the legal training center that the ministry works hard to provide judges with personal and professional skills to work in labor courts.
“Those courts will be open for progress and development and will be role models for other courts to follow once proven successful,” said Al-Samaani.
The operation of labor courts early next year will be based on digital transformation, which other courts are currently implementing. The first phase will focus on the launch and operation of labor courts in seven main cities: Riyadh, Makkah, Jeddah, Abha, Dammam, Buraidah and Madinah.
