UAE Residents Warned Against Hiring Maids Through Illegal Sites

The Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratization (MoHRE) issued a warning to residents of the UAE on March 14th against contacting unauthorized recruiters advertising housekeeping services on social media.

Unauthorized organizations are allegedly taking advantage of the rising need for domestic employees ahead of Ramadan. When dealing with workers provided by unlicensed organizations, the ministry also cautioned about the potential for legal repercussions as well as social and health hazards.

The ministry said, “This is in addition to the possibility of the employers and their family members getting exposed to infectious diseases since there is no proof these domestic workers are free from any health conditions or disease. The domestic worker could be a law violator, too, which would add to the risks.” 

The MoHRE has urged clients to get in touch with the call center at (600) 590-0000 to confirm the legitimacy of organizations that promote domestic services on social media. The government has authorized 80 domestic worker recruiting agencies nationwide.
