(MENAFN - Arab News) The Ministry of Labor is implementing several recommendations to improve working conditions for women, including enforcing special concessions for mothers with newborn babies.

Adel Fakeih, the labor minister, who opened a forum here on social dialogue, said these recommendations had come from several stakeholders during previous discussions. Workers, business owners and government officials attended the forum.

Fakeih said it was important to continue this dialogue to ensure the upgrading of public services and ease problems for workers in the Kingdom, especially women.

Fakeih said the recommendations of the two previous forums had been adopted including working hours and salaries in the private sector.

Ahmed Al-Hemaidan, general secretary of the forum and undersecretary at the ministry, said the ministry's strategic partnership with the King Abdul Aziz Center for National Dialogue would help resolve problems women face at work. They would also be able to share their opinions and propose solutions to their problems.

"Building a unique dialogue among the three stakeholders will help to improve workers' conditions in their places of work and implement legislation without negatively affecting the market or the economy," he said.
