The Importance of Arbitration in Contemporary Labour Disputes in The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia

Khayyat, Khalid Rshad (2015) The Importance of Arbitration in Contemporary Labour Disputes in The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. PhD thesis, Victoria University.

Abstract

The arbitration method as an optional method for resolving labour disputes in the KSA was stipulated in past and current Saudi Labour Laws. However, there has been no prior academic research or study that addresses the importance of the arbitration method in resolving labour disputes. The aim of this thesis is to study the use of arbitration (that is, arbitration as quasi-judicial) in resolving labour disputes in the KSA and then to assess whether there are benefits for the parties to labour disputes. Therefore, a hypothesis is established stating that the use of the arbitration method in labour disputes in Saudi Arabia is not beneficial for both parties in a dispute. The hypothesis is then tested. Thus, it is important to investigate labour disputes and the methods used for resolution, and then evaluate these methods.
