The Main Features of Mudad
The Compliance System:
The compliance system is a government platform that aims to protect wages and document contracts to ensure the preservation of the rights of all contracting parties and provide a safe and transparent work environment. The system provides two main services:
1. Wage protection:
The Wage Protection System, which was launched in 2013 and was developed to keep pace with the Kingdom’s Vision 2030, aims to increase establishments’ commitment to raising their employees’ wage files, monitoring compliance levels, and tracking violations.
2. Documentation of contracts:
The system allows establishment owners in the private sector to upload and update employee contract data. This system also enables employees to verify the validity of their contract data and enable them to object to the data included through the Absher system. The goal of this service is to support private sector establishments in documenting employee contracts to protect their rights.
Some of the advantages of the compliance system include reducing wage-related disputes between company owners and employees, enhancing transparency, and ensuring everyone’s rights are protected in the work environment. It also facilitates the creation and documentation of employment contracts and facility compliance.
