End of Service Benefits in KSA

by Expatguru - 04/27/2012

"This article describes the End of Service Benefits which expatriates working in Saudi Arabia are entitled when they complete their contract."

Much has been written about the tax-free salary in Saudi Arabia and Gulf in particular. However, not much information is available about the benefits expats are entitled to receive upon completion of their work contract. This article tries to throw some light on this.

Expatriates planning to work in Saudi Arabia usually pay attention to their contract terms and conditions, but most of them focus only on the salary package and benefits such as housing, etc. I would like to specifically point out that when you sign a contract with your employer, you must also pay close attention to your gratuity or what is officially known as End of Service Benefits (ESB). When you complete your contract and are ready to leave the kingdom for good, you are entitled to certain monetary compensation which is directly related to the amount of time you had spent with your employer.

Saudi Labor Law has specific provisions for End of Service Benefits. Article 84 of the labor law explicitly states these. For the first five years of service which an expatriate puts in with an employer, he/she is entitled to half a month's salary for each completed year. Beyond the fifth year, this becomes one month's salary. The word "salary" in this context has also been clearly defined in the Saudi Labor Law.

The ESB calculation is based on the last pay drawn by the employee before leaving the kingdom. This includes basic salary plus all other allowances. However, these allowances do not include sales commissions, performance incentives, etc., unless explicitly mentioned in your contract.

Now what happens when you change your sponsorship from one employer to another. In that case, the first employer is the one who is responsible for paying your benefits upto your last day of service with him and the onus on the subsequent employer will be only from the date you start your next employment with him. In other words, your work with each sponsor is unique and falls under a different contract, so if you work with 2 employers in 10 years, you cannot demand that the second employer pay your ESB from the day you started employment in the kingdom.

Finally, note that if tangible benefits such as accommodation are provided by your employer, you cannot claim your benefits against this, unless you are actually paid a house rent allowance in lieu of accommodation. Also, if your contract has a provision for overtime, this also is not part of ESB because overtime is not considered as part of a regular salary but compensation paid towards extra amount of work you have put in. Please note that ESB always applies to “completed years of service” which means if you leave after 11 months of a year, you get nothing for that particular year.

This is why it is so important to read and understand your contract thoroughly, otherwise you might end up with a hole in your pocket if you miscalculate your potential savings.

Hi, Thanks for the much needed article. Just a quick question. Is one entitled to ESB even if nothing is mentioned about it in the contract? I have a two year contract, but there is no mention of it in my contract and I wasn't aware of it prior to coming to the kingdom. Thanks

Sir, if we are ending our contract, do we have to be charge for the iqama? Because what's happening in my institution they are charging the employees their iqama upon the final settlement

Adnan, ESB is a benefit made mandatory by Saudi Labor Law. You are entitled to it even if nothing is mentioned in the contract, provided you complete the contract.

Fely Baticaroz, Unless every time you have your vacation of every contract you finished and then you claim for service fee for that particular vacation then nothing to claim for ESB on the past working years. Only what you can claim for ESB is the present year of contract that. The ESB computation is Half of one month salary in every completed year. In case your last contract is 2 years then the computation goes like this: Monthly Salary / 2 = Answer * 2years = Answer I hope you got my points for you.

i am working in saudi arabia since 4th august 2008 with al khodari company and my contract was 1 year renewable. and i was told that renewable means it will renew automatically on 04th august every year. and now on 04 august 2012 i want to leave the company and going for exit. and before that i have given one official letter to my company with subject end of contract in that letter stating that i am not going to renew my contract from 04th august 2012. so my last working day or contract expiration date will be 03rd of august 2012. so i want to confirm from you that how they are going to calculate my end service benefit because as i discussed in my company personal dept. they said that i am entitled for 1/3 of total days it means for 4 years total days is equal to 60 but as per 1/3 it will be become 20 days so please clarify me for the same. because in saudi labor article no 84 it is clearly mentioned that upon expiration of contract the employer have to pay half month rate up to 5 year and full month rate after 5th year and onward. so why they are cheating me by this way. even i am not violating the contract also. same date 04th august 2008 i came to ksa and i want leave same date 04th august 2012 i am leaving. so why they applying 1/3 or 2/3 rule with me, when it is clearly mentioned in Saudi labor law article 85 that if the relationship is terminated because of resignation then 1/3 or 2/3 rule will be applicable. please justify regading my above mentioned querry

Wednesday 15 August 2012, 10:15 am
I have a job offer my khodari, as accountant and they offering me 3000 SAR as basic, 500 HRA, and 300 Transportation, will there be any other benefits ? OR is this good salary for a MBA finance, with 2 years of experience. Please help

Monday 10 February 2014, 1:37 pm
Payroll guy@ HRA should be 25% housing of your basic. Is it mentioned in Saudi labour law? If yes please send the link/document.

Friday 22 March 2013, 6:36 am
Article (85): If the work relation ends due to the worker’s resignation, he shall, in this case, be entitled to one third of the award after a service of not less than two consecutive years and not more than five years, to two thirds if his service is in excess of five successive years but less than ten years and to the full award if his service amounts to ten or more years.

Respected sir, I worked in al suwaidi company 5,years 6 month but at the end of my service they gave me only 10 days my basic salary per year as a benefit. Now i am working in another company in saudi arabia. i need justice as per saudi law, I have all the related document. Mob:0507234789

Wednesday 1 August 2012, 6:27 am
Dear Naushaad, First i would like to know that whether you have availed that ESB or a part of that in your service. If the answer is NO, then it is totally unfair and illegal to pay you 10 days, 5 years means that you should get 15 days salary as your ESB. TC

Dear HR Guy, I am trying to find out about typical terms and conditions of employment and benefits that are offered to expats working in Saudi and came across your response on the teachsaudi website. . For now looking at length of contact, trips to home country per year, amount of leave, local allowances, provision of accomodation and medical cover etc.. On the employment law side - what do expats have to comply with? A sample expat contract to look at would be very useful. Can you point me towards any resources? All help will be gratefully received. Kind regards, John

With respect Sir, I am currently working in Riyadh, KSA with Wallan Trading Company newly joined, my concern is my contract is written in one year not specific renewable or not, but mention in the vacation, 30 days leave every year with free economy ticket Riyadh to Manila Riyadh. another concern is, its possible to can claim a separation benefits just in-case they renew my contract every year and I will end my contract more than 5 years? can the article 84 will apply just in-case? because if that so, since the contract is written 1 year and I'm worry if this will be back to zero contract situation and no benefit to be claim in the future. Now as much earlier I wrote a comment for your further clarification as per Saudi Labour Law if it is right to renew or not.

Wednesday 1 August 2012, 6:29 am
Dear Ronnie, ESB will be applied under same sponsor, same Visa, the contract if renewed will not be zero again. Cheers!!

sir, i would like to know whether my employer is correct in giving me the calculation or nor.i am 8 years now in this company and going back home next month for final exit....they calculated my ESB as 1 1/2 months only..1-5 years they will not give anything because we already took it every 2 years which is 2 months salary (paid vacation).only on the 6th year they will give 1/2 for very is so unfair when i learned that my colleagues of 3 years got 1.5 months when they decided to go home....please help me with this one.....

Wednesday 1 August 2012, 6:22 am
Dear Jennifer, As per Saudi labor law the ESB is not part of your annual vacation, as 21 days paid/year is entitled to all incumbents. ESB is definitely be paid at the end of your service by calculating your number of years in the service. It has nothing to do with the annual vacation. TC

Good day Sir, I'm currently working in Saudi Arabia as Admin clerk. My company only give the 42days under ESB and 2 months vacation pay. Under my understanding in the Saudi Labor Law that the company must pay according our "Salary" plus all other allowances, but my company did not give us the food allowances, which is included in our salary and it must give to the employee who will go for vacation/exit. May I know if we have the right to complain this issue to Saudi authorities?

Dear Sirs I am a bit surprised why nothing is said about Article 85 of Saudi Labor law which clearly states if an employee resign his job on his own he is entitled for 5 days salary / annum as an End of Service Benifits. Please clear me if i am wrong after reading below portions of Saudi Labor law. I would like to know the same is applicable if an employee is decided to leave his job after expiration of his work permit / Iqama or he is entitled to full service award as stated in Article 84. Article 84: Upon expiration of the work relationship, the employer shall be required to pay the workman aseverance award for the duration of this service to be calculated at the rate of half a monthly rate for each of the five first years and one month pay for each of the following years. The severanceaward shall be calculated on the basis of the last basic pay and the workman shall be entitled to aseverance award for the portions of the year in proportion to the time spent on the work. Article 85: If the relationship is terminated because of the resignation of the workman, the workman shall inthis case be entitled to one third of the award after a service period of not less than twoconsecutive years and not more than five years, to two thirds if his period of service is in excessof five successive years but less than ten years and to the full award if the period of serviceamounts to ten or more years.

Dear Sir: I am Pilipino working in my present company in Jubail Saudi Arabia for more than 4 years now (Dec 2008 to present) and already tendered my resignation effective this March 2013. I check with our HR department regarding my ESB and informed me that I am entitled to 5 days only for every year of service which is contradictory to Article 85 of the Saudi labor law. Is this true or should I get 10 days for every year of service? Is there anywhere or way I can complain about this issue?

Dear sir, Please help me to understand for Saudi labor law that I have worked with one company for 9 years 11 months and 22 days.And my contract terminated. And the company calculated my ESB as the following; 1st 5 years half of my basic salary and housing and transportation allowance, and for next 4 years and 11 months and 22 days for full basic salary + transportation and housing. Is it correct calculation as per Saudi labor law or they have to calculate for whole period of my service which is 9 years 11 month and 22 days with full basic salary and transportation and housing? Your support in this regards will b e appreciated. Regards,

Sir, I would highly appreciate your clarification for the following :- As per our company policy , all employee have a 2 years contract , which is renweable on mutual agreement on its expiry for the same paeriod ( 2 years ) . If a person completes 2 tenure each of 2 years contract and for the third 2 years contract he only complete 6 months ( do not complete the remaining 1 1/2 year ) and resignes . What will be his End of service benifts . Will he get 15 days + 15 days for the first 2 completed contracts and 1/3rd of the 3rd icomplete contract period which is 7.5 days x 1/3rd = 2.5 days , total as 32.5 days or will he get 1/3rd for the whole service period ie for 4 and 1/2 year which is 15+15+7.5 = 37.5 days x 1/3rd = 12.5 days .

Hi, would like to seek assistance.

If in case he will consult this to labour, do you have any idea as to how many days/weeks, or months it will go in case he will file a case for it. Or does it cost a lot? They ask him to wait but no definite time/date as to when company will settle said. Thanks in advance for your assistance....

Sunday 12 January 2014, 2:37 pm
had worked for 32 years of my life in only one hospital in riyadh; few months before i left, i received a letter from personnel that because i was nearing 60 yrs. old my contract, which had to end oct. 15 2011 will not be renewed, so i was obliged to submit my resignation letter stating the reason that i was approaching my 60 yrs of age. but what i had done was to finish my contract in april 2011 instead of october 2011 because of some personal and familly matters of which they accepted as valid so i had cleared and received my employment certificate, and or letter of no objection; but before that head of human resources thru the personnel manager made me signed that i will not ask for my ESB for the reason that our yearly bonus was already our ESB though it's not on our contract and even told me that all employees were aware of that rule. cut it short i went home for good without any single riyal of esb. ....but few months after i was home i learned that my hospital started giving ESB to all employees who had cleared, finished worked and had letter of no objection. i was told to ask for it by some of my friends; and i wanted to ask that hospital's manpower or personnel BUT i decided to get some opinions and advises from you first....( why only now, working and living in ksa for more than 3 decades, i pray all would believe that it was only when i went home for good that i had just known that to live again for good on ones country home is not an easy game, but at least, i still would try to ask for my right, honestly, i pray that my hospital would realize that it is not just for the money this ESB is but for me this ESB means "rewards and gratitude". thank you so much for listening. God bless!

Monday 13 January 2014, 4:35 am
I would like to enquire about an employee in Saudi who is leaving after 15 years. Although the calculation part is clear, I have a query on the allowances. His interpretation of allowances is that it should include the yearly educational allowance, for this employee's grade it is around SAR 50,000 per annum-. However the company only reimburses on actual school bills and not the whole allowance, in this case the actual bills are much lower than the set allowance. Which amount should be included in the EOS calculation? The actual spent or the original amount of the allowance? Also the Company gives a vehicle loan to employee for a period of 5 years and then pays the employee a fixed amount monthly so that after 5 years, 60% of the amount is reimbursed by the Company for the car and the balance 40% is on the employees account for personal use of the car. Are such allowances to in included in the EOS calculation. Finally what about sales incentives, commissions, vacation tickets? Are these included in the EOS calculation? Appreciate if you could resolve this issue.

Dear Expatguru, i am work in saudi arabia in company since 9 year and every base contract. my contract will be end and i dont want to renew my contract. can you please tell me what is the EOS calculation method.

Sunday 1 June 2014, 5:28 am
I have got two doubts after reading this article. 1) Fixed overtime is like an allowance paid whether you put in that extra effort or not and must form part of ESB calculation like other cash allowances, However sales commission may not be in the nature of an allowance and is not fixed but depends on the sales achieved and therefore does not form part of the ESB calculation. 2) ESB is even calculated for a part of the year. It is 15 days every year or part thereof and 30 days every year or part thereof. An employee with 4 years and six months service is allowed service benefit for four years and six month and so on. Likewise an employee having put in 11 years and 9 months will be paid for the full period of service including 9 months. Would you please clarify, sir.

Sir, gud pm. my case is like this my end of contract is Sept 4, 2013 (two years contract) but with that date I would extended my service to the company until April 30, 2014 granted by the HR Dept and approved which is also the last day of my work since I gave a letter for final exit notice on August 20, 2013. so its clear I submit already my final notice in advance 8 months from August to April I will do these earlier to prepare for the company awareness to find the replacement or taking my place if I am going to leave this company. but the problem is on May 1, 2014 up to now since this is the first day of my stop work and management doesn't do anything or process my papers for my settlement, exit visa and ticket for almost 6 weeks now so please guide me to solve my problem co'z the management they did not prioritize my papers and as far as I know in Saudi Labor Law Article 88 stated for a maximum of two weeks should be finish my entitlements etc. kindly please I need answer with these problem.

My first 4 years with my US employer was in Saudi over 10 years ago. No mention of ESB in my contract or by the company until after I was reassigned back to the US for 3 years and we won another contract in Saudi, which I managed from the US. In reading Saudi labor law, it states the ESB is paid "at the end of the work relations". Since I've continued working for this same company in the US until recently, I requested my ESB for the 4 years I worked in Saudi upon my resignation. First they told me it was not included in my contract, but I provided them info that it does not need to be in the contract as it is the law. Then they stated that I was supposed to ask for the ESB within a year of leaving Saudi. Is then true? I've read thru the Saudi Labor Law several times and cannot find where I have to ask for my ESB within a year of leaving Saudi - all I can find is the statements that it is paid at the "end of the work relations" - which ended with this company when I resigned last month. BTW - even though I was in the US the past 10+ years, the primary contracts I managed were in Saudi Arabia and I continued going back & forth to Saudi for work for over 10 years. Want to know if I should be getting the ESB for the 4 years I worked in Saudi for this US company before they reassigned me back to the US 10+years ago?

Dear Sir, I worked under Ministry of Health from Feb 2003 (Dhul Hijja 1423) up to October 2014 (Dhul Hijja 1435) they gave my end of service benefits after I left K.S.A. they just gave me half of what i am expecting under the Saudi Labor Law. Can I still file a complaint and recover half of what the ministry owes me even though i'm already outside the kingdom? Hope you can help me with this matter. Thank you.

Dear Sir, Please guide me in case of my resignation with the job where I am going to complete 10 years on 31 May 2015, do I need to complete 10 years including or excluding the notice period of one month in order not to loose one third of the benefits. In other words, can I tender my resignation on 1st May 2015 to finish my work on 31st May 2015, which date actually is exactly the completion of 10 years with the company, and still be eligible to full payment of my ESB. Thanks & Best Regards Shakir
