Women can work until midnight in banks, restaurants, cooperative societies, educational institutions, saloons, touristic offices, commercial markets and complexes.

Al-Mousa banned employment of men in service sectors related to women clothing, ladies saloons, cosmetics stores, and women health institutes, instructing labor departments not to issue or renew any work permits for men working in these fields.

A decision was also issued to grant female employees two hours during working hours to breastfeed their children, provided they submit the required official documents in this regard.

The employees will lose this right after the breastfeeding children turns two. In addition, female Muslim employees can take fully-paid leave for four months and ten days from the date of their husbands’ demise.
