The Ministry of Labor and Social Development (MLSD) conducted 21,672 rounds on commercial centers and independent stores across various regions of the Kingdom to make sure employers comply with the decision aiming to nationalize the telecommunication sector. Khaled Abalkhail, spokesman for MLSD, said the inspection rounds which started in 2018 till March 24 uncovered compliance of 20,669 establishments compared to 1,003 uncompliant ones. During the crackdown, the inspection campaigns detected 1,060 violations, including 732 nationalization violations and 328 violations related to other labor issues, Abalkhail pointed out. The spokesman urged customers to report labor violations or submit inquires through contacting the Customer Service no. (19911) or using the ‘Ma3an Lil Rasd’ app on smart phones. Meanwhile, the total nationalization of the telecommunication sector aims to generate job opportunities for Saudi men and women who are interested to join the cell-phone industry in the light of the sector’s ability to provide lucrative income and job stability for them. Additionally, it seeks to limit security, social and economic issues and curb cover-up businesses as the sectoral enforcement also gives no exception for any establishment regardless of being mega, large, medium or small-sized.
