Emiratisation Hiring Guidelines Specified in a New Resolution

The Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation (MoHRE) has announced a resolution clarifying the wages, fake jobs, hiring procedures, and employer obligations with only two weeks left before the Emiratisation target in the private sector comes into effect. 

Private corporations must "hire Emiratis in professional employees," the ministry emphasized. Companies must seek approval from the ministry before outlining the advantages of Emiratization provided by the UAE government in job postings.

Deceptive Advertisements published by Companies that are forged to mislead the authorities and profit from government incentives will be subjected to harsh penalties.  Deducting any payments from Employee paychecks under the pretense of "government programs" by companies is restricted. 

All Emirati employees hired by the employer must have valid work permits and be registered with the government's social security and pension programs. In addition to the bare minimum of on-the-job training, organizations are required to give newly hired UAE nationals the required resources to do their tasks.

MoHRE said in a statement on Sunday, "Expanding Emiratisation in the country requires regulating all aspects and obligations of all parties, set laws to regulate recently observed violations through intensifying inspection visits, define necessary measures and ensure that all parties follow them."

A minimum of two percent of employees must be Emirati, according the law, for private companies with at least 50 workers. Every UAE national that non-compliant businesses fail to hire will result in a monthly fine of AED 6,000 starting in January 2023.
