The UAE passed several decrees to protect workers' rights that cover recruitment, pay, housing and health. New labour reforms that took effect in the UAE on 1 January 2016 place tremendous responsibility on the employers for protecting the workers. The new reforms focus on improving transparency of job terms and employment contracts, spell out how contracts can be terminated and make it easier for workers to switch employers. Under the new policies, prospective workers will be asked to sign a standard employment offer in their home country that will in turn be filed with MoHRE before a work permit is issued.
That agreement will then be registered as a legal contract once the worker arrives in the country and no changes will be allowed unless they extend additional benefits to which the worker agrees. Either side will be able to terminate the contract, after which the worker will be free to switch to a new employer.
Spreading awareness amongst workersMoHRE launches many awareness campaigns to educate labourers about their rights. One of these campaigns was initiated under the slogan 'Know your rights'. The campaign communicated the following messages to workers:
You are entitled to keep possession of all your personal identification documents once your residency permit is issuedIf you are asked to sign a contract with terms and conditions which are different from MoHRE's standard contracts, report immediately to the nearest labour office even if you are advised that the changes are of advantage to you, as contract substitution is illegal
If your employer fails to present you with a contract or provide you with work, MoHRE will assist you in finding alternative employmentIf your employer fails to present you with a work contract within one week of your arrival, report to the nearest labour office
To avoid violating the law, do not accept other employment without first reporting to the Labour Office at MoHREUAE law requires your employer to pay the costs of the issuance of an entry visa and travel to the UAE, and the costs of post arrival processing requirements such as medical tests in the UAE and the issuance of your Residency Permit
Your contract must match your job offer and you should keep a copy of your signed contractYou have the right to leave your job at any time, but be aware of your contractual obligationsThe termination of your contract can be ended by the employer or the employee and it can be by mutual consent
It is important for employees to follow the required legal steps for terminating a contract as the Labour Office can help recover any dues that are owed to the employee and arrange placement in alternative employment if eligible to obtain a new work permitاقرأ أكثر: حكومة الامارات الذكية »
