The Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation called on the establishments to comply with the timely payment of wages through the wage protection system, in order to guarantee the rights of both parties to the work relationship.
The Ministry has set, on its official account on “Twitter,” three procedures that establishments are obligated to ensure the continuation of their work, which are paying workers wages on time through the wages protection system, agreeing with the worker on any temporary or permanent change in wages, and documenting the change or early leave granted to the worker in Corona Virus Virus Period (Covid-19), through the temporary add-on template available on the Facilitation System and the Ministry's smart application.
For their part, workers demanded that the establishments they work in must pay their wages, especially before Eid al-Fitr, so that they can meet the needs of their families.
In its response to a worker’s complaint about the facility’s laxity in which he pays the wages of its employees, the Ministry called him to submit a complaint through the Ministry’s mobile application, or through the ministry’s website, or call 80060, to consider and decide on his complaint .
While another employee stated that his employer had given his employees notifications of a 30% deduction from the salary without discussing the employees, obtaining their approval or signing an agreement about this deduction.
In its response to a question about calculating bonus benefits for unpaid months, the Ministry stated that unpaid leave is not counted during the end of service settlement as part of the total service period.
