Workers were fired after expat 'took advantage of his position' in HR
Saudi Arabia's saud branch in the Eastern Province has reinstated 30 workers who were dismissed from their job by an exptriate.
The expat who dismissed the workers has had his own contract terminated.
According to a report in the Saudi Gazette, the expat took advantage of his position in the human resources management – employment regulations in the country forbid non-Saudis occupying such posts.
A team from the Ministry of Labour visited the firm in Al-Khobar where the expat was issued with an exit visa and a Saudi employed in his place.
The report said violations worth SR420,000 ($112,000) were registered against the firm.
