Purpose

To declare PMU guidelines with regards to Employees’ Death and ensure uniform interpretation and application of this policy.


Statement

In the event of the death of an employee, the employee’s employment contract will be terminated as of the date of death. If the employee is an expatriate, his/her Embassy will be contacted immediately and all further actions will be coordinated with the appropriate Embassy staff.

Transportation of Body

In the event of death of an employee (while outside of the employee’s home Country) during the employee’s contract period, PMU will bear the cost of transporting the employee’s body to the designated airport, or to a closer point where appropriate.

Entitlements

When the termination is due to death of an employee, PMU will pay the entitlements due to the official and legal representative of the deceased employee as explained below:

Death of a Saudi National Employee

In such an instance, the entitlements are paid to the individual appropriately certified in writing by the   Shariah Court as the legal representative of the deceased employee.

Death of an Expatriate Employee

In such an instance, the entitlements are paid to the individual appropriately certified in writing by the court in the employee’s home Country as the legal representative of the deceased employee. Such certification also needs to be attested to by the deceased employee’s Embassy. Under such conditions, the deceased’s legal representative is entitled to the following:

  • PMU provided transportation of the body back to designated airport. Refer to Paragraph 6.1 above.
  • To be paid any annual leave which have accrued at the date of termination and not yet taken.
  • To be paid the end of service award.
