The penalties under the amended
scheme will now be imposed 'semi-annually'
The fines are not new. It is the
process of implementing the Emiratisation scheme that has been revised.
What has changed?
The annual goal of increasing emiratisation
rates by 2% has been divided into two parts, with 1% required in the first half
of the year and the remaining 1% required in the second half.
In accordance with the UAE
Government's directives, this measure ensures that the Emiratisation drive
After the implementation of the Emiratisation targets last year, private companies with at least 50 employees must employ at least 3% Emiratis by July 1, 2023, and 4% by the end of the same year. Companies that fail to hire 1% of Emiratis will be fined Dh7,000 for each unhired Emirati on a semi-annual basis rather than annually.
