Saudi Arabia eases ‘kafala’ system restrictions on migrant workers

Saudi Arabia has announced it will ease some of the contractual restrictions giving employers control over the lives of some 10 million migrant workers.

The reforms will allow private sector workers to change jobs and leave the country without an employer’s consent.

The Saudi government said it was seeking to “improve and increase the efficiency of the work environment”.
