Corona Virus Has Caused My Business To Stop Or Fall Completely

I have a company that many labors and employees working therein. Corona Virus causes and production ceased entirely.My question is that: is it possible for me to reduce the labors’ salary legally and to lay off some labors temporarily to enable the company to continue until the end of current crisis?

As an employer who has affected work due to the application of precautionary procedures for controlling novel corona virus outbreak, you have right to reduce your labors salary or to lay off some labors temporarily.   This is applied in accordance with the ministerial resolution issued concerning employment stability in the private sector while the precautionary measures over the Covid-19 coronavirus are in place.

Companies, that are implementing the precautionary measures, and which have a surplus in the numbers of expat workers (who hold work permits) should register their details in the virtual labor market system to make them available for working- on a cycling basis- at other enterprises when needed. The enterprises that are implementing the precautionary measures- and which want to restructure their work mechanism -should proceed gradually with the foreign worker’s consent as follows:

1-Implementing the remote work system.
2-Giving the worker paid leave.
3-Giving him unpaid leave.
4-Reducing his salary temporarily during the said period.
5-Reducing his salary permanently.
