Authorities warned against misleading job adverts and low wages

UAE authorities have warned private companies against posting misleading job advertisements, offering unskilled positions and offering reduced salaries to citizens under the country’s Emiratisation drive, through its latest amendments.

The Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation on Sunday issued an official resolution that covered compliance by the private sector in advertising, compensation and training.Paying lower wages to Emirati employees in comparison to their colleagues was also against the Emiratisation legislation, the agencies mentioned.

When hiring a UAE citizen, a company must secure a work permit from the ministry, sign a contract, pay salaries as per regulation, register UAE nationals, and pay monthly pensions and social security contributions within a month from the issuing of employment papers.

If an employee quits, he must cancel the work permit and report the changes to authorities.
