The House of Representatives is expected to discuss, in its next session, a draft Shura law that aims to obligate the worker or employee to notify the company in which he works at least 120 days in advance if he wants to leave work.

The law includes extending the notice period to more than (30) days and not to exceed (120) days for work in which it is difficult to obtain a qualified replacement worker within a short period of time.

The legal memorandum to the law submitted by the Shura Council stated that it aims to contribute to the continuous provision of services to citizens regularly, and to prevent obstruction of some business sectors in which it is difficult to provide a qualified alternative worker once the work contract is terminated at the request of the worker, which negatively affects the quality and level of services provided. It is also impossible to complete administrative procedures related to employment within a short period of time.
