As the Order is effective since March 18, 2018; anyone violating this law will be penalized with a fine of 20000 Saudi Riyals as per the Mnistry of Labor & Socail Development.
All Car Rental Shop Jobs are almost occupied by Saudi Nationals now and the expats who are working should stop working after today.
MOL will start inspecting all the Car Rentals and will fine Car Rentals where Expats are employed after March 18th.
Most of the Car Rentals Offices have been closed after this news was out as the Expat worker Salaries were less and if the Offices hir Saudi Nationals they will have to pay more Salaries to them.
