The course will also provide delegates with an overview of, and insight into, the KSA immigration and labour law regimes.
Additionally, upon attending this course, delegates will learn the key immigration and labour law framework and an employer’s overarching duties, responsibilities and obligations towards its employees, including potential liabilities and risk for non-compliance.
