  • Ramadan, Eid al-Fitr & Saudi Arabian Labor Law

    We trust that the business community in the Gulf region is refreshed following Eid al-Fitr and is busily back at work.

    Historically, business slows down during the Holy Month of Ramadan.  At JHI, however, Ramadan in recent years has been as busy as any other month. Naturally, this is because our clients doing business in the Middle East have been busy.

    With the current flurry of reforms and tremendous economic growth, there is no longer room for a "slow" month for those doing business in Arabia.

    With so much work being done by so many, now would seem an opportune time to share with you a recent article on Saudi Arabian Labor Law authored by attorney Firoz Mohammed, Senior Legal Consultant at JHI's Jeddah office (KKLF).

    For both economic and moral reasons, local Labor Law is important to those who do business internationally.  If you are already doing business in the Kingdom, or are weighing an expansion into the Saudi market, you may be interested in reading about the latest Labor Law reforms concerning greater transparancy (rights, obligations, expectations, compensation, process, review and outcomes) and faster, more reliable dispute resolution.

    Mr. Mohammed is licensed to practice in his home country of India, and has been working and living in Jeddah for over 25 years.  While witnessing the fascinating, historically rapid development of a very traditional nation, Firoz has - since the days of King Fahad - made it his business to analyze the laws of one of the Arab world's most important economies.  You can read his article HERE   

    Ramadan, Eid al-Fitr & Saudi Arabian Labor Law   "Let's get back to work!"
                                                                                                     "Um, did we ever actually stop working this year... ?"


    You will see more articles from Firoz in subsequent blog entries, and we will showcase the profiles of Firoz and other seasoned professionals resident in Jeddah very soon - watch this space !
  • EB-5 (Investor) Visas

    With possible changes to US immigration law on the horizon, aspiring immigrants to the Land of Liberty may have a feeling of uncertainty at present. A tightening of legal immigration may be part of a deal in Washington, DC designed to address illegal immigration.

    JHI, Law Firm, NYC, USA, EB-5 Investor Visa, Legal

    It is impossible at the time of this writing to know exactly how immigration law will change, or if it will actually change at all. But, we do know of one immigration law that already meets the requirements of the US President, as publicly expressed during negotiations thus far, with a program that uses merit-based criteria and which provides economic growth:  the law authorizing the issuance of EB-5 Visas to Foreign Investors.

    Under the law, Foreign Investors who invest a minimum amount of capital in such a way as to create and/ or maintain ten or more US jobs have the opportunity to apply for a Green Card through the facility of the EB-5 Visa program.  The minimum level of capital the Foreign Investor has to commit is determined by the classification of the targeted region of the investment itself.

    Participating in the resurgence of the greatest economy on earth while pursuing a credible opportunity to secure permanent residency status for you and your immediate family seems a double-win.  The economic growth it generates while providing entry to entrepreneurial immigrants with substantial resources of their own would certainly seem to be good for America as well.

    If you are interested in investing in the US economy (either directly or through a reputable Approved Regional Processing Center) and seeking a Green Card, contact JHI today for more information on the EB-5 (Investor) Visa program -- info@huflaw.com

    With offices in New York, NY & Jeddah, Saudi Arabia; and, additional on-the-ground resources available in the UAE, India and Singapore, JHI is in an ideal position to be of assistance and we will be happy to help.
