  • The UAE implements new penalties for companies that fail to pay staff salaries on time -

    The Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation (MoHRE) have announced that employers who do not pay their staff on time will be required to pay additional penalties. These penalties will be more than double the amount of the workers’ insurance policy value that they pay for each employee.

    Businesses in the UAE are required to submit all salary payments through the central clearing Wage Protection System (WPS). The system will check if the correct salaries are being paid, and at the correct time. Failing to pay through the WPS system or failing to pay the right amount at the right time will lead to penalties being imposed on the company. If the company persistently fails to pay correct salaries and on time, then MoHRE can block the company as well.
