Jakarta (Indonesia Window) – The domestic worker dispute resolution committee under the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Development (MHRSD) has recently issued a document prohibiting the use of the services of domestic workers for commercial activities.

The committee would penalize anyone who is found to allow domestic workers recruited by them to work in private establishments, as doing so is prohibited under the Saudi labor law.


In order to protect the public interest and to avoid legal penalties, the MHRSD has warned citizens and residents of the danger of dealing or cooperating in any way with foreign workers who violate the labor regulations.

The ministry called on members of the public to report if they come across any violations of the labor law by calling the unified number (19911) or through its official app.
