Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Human Resources and Social Development emphasized that it will ensure that there is no gender discrimination in terms of pay scales of male and female employees working in the private sector.

This is among a series of decisions announced by the ministry on Monday with regard to unifying the work environment in the private sector to keep pace with developments in the Saudi job market.

“The employer is prohibited from exercising any sort of pressure on the freedom of the worker, including instructions for wearing an appropriate dress and also forcing him or her to perform tasks not agreed upon in the contract,” the ministry said in a statement.
