All private firms in Saudi Arabia have been instructed to adopt a dress code policy for both male and female workers.
In a directive to private sector employers, the Minister of Human Resources and Social Development Eng. Ahmed bin Sulaiman Al-Rajhi called on them to ensure compliance with the dress code by employees at their workplaces.
The minister referred to an amendment to that effect made in the first paragraph of Article 38 of the Labor Law concerning work ethics regulations.
The amendment mandates that all private businesses and institutions must have a dress code, with written guidelines, to ensure that workers adhere to it that guarantees a proper professional appearance and is in line with their workplace duties.
