Law & You - 2010 No. 26
I have been working for my present company for 17 years. As I understand it, the expiration date of my iqama marks the end of my contract period. If my iqama is due for renewal in January and I plan to leave the company, I should submit my resignation in writing at least 30 days prior to that expiration date.

I would like to ask you about the system for workers who work in a company without sponsorship.  I heard there is punishment announced by the Ministry of Interior for the company which hires such people and the workers who work without sponsorship. If that is the case, to whom can we complain for what happened to us as expatriate workers, against those who sponsored us illegally?  —  AMSH

I am a foreign investor. While applying to form a company to export goods from my country, my request was turned down. I was astonished because I thought investment was open to all professions. Is this final? Can I appeal this decision with the Saudi Arabian General Investment Authority? — S.T.B.

Law & You - 2010 No. 12
I am working as an office manager. I had a question regarding my ESB. I joined my present company in January 2006 with a two-year contract. After completion of the two years I did not sign a new contract and so I am under the impression that my contract became open-ended. Now I have received a good offer from another company and I am planning to resign.

Law & You - 2010 No. 9
I am an Indian expatriate who has lived in Saudi Arabia for almost 10 years. Recently, when my iqama was sent for renewal, the relevant department in my company said it could not be renewed due to a criminal case stemming from 2002 that has since been resolved. The religious police had arrested me for being in the isolated company of a woman (khulwa).
Law & You - 2010 No. 8
Q. My eldest son was studying at a reputed school in Riyadh. Now the Boys Section is closed because the school does not have a license. The school authorities said they would open it again after a few days. The owner never bothers herself about our problems or about the future of our children.

I am an Indian working at mid-management level with a Saudi company for the past three and a half years. I have two questions. Firstly, how would my end of service benefits (ESB) be calculated if I resign (i) now or (ii) after completing 5 years? Secondly, what is the rule for coming back to work in Saudi Arabia with another company (i) in the same profession and also (ii) in a relatively different profession?

Law & You - 2010 No. 6
I work in Makkah as a secretary and network administrator. I want to bring my wife and child here. I heard a few days ago that the Saudi government has lifted a ban on certain professions that prevented some categories of workers from bringing their families to live with them. I am a network administrator, but the profession on my iqama says “Steel Fixer.”
