ABU DHABI – The stress of unemployment may soon be alleviated after a UAE council proposed a draft law on unemployment insurance for worker.
The recent proposal by the Education and Human Resources Council (EHRC) covers Emiratis and highly skilled expatriate employees in the private sector.
Employees in the private sector may also be allowed to work from home if the EHRC’s recommendation for the implementation of a remote-work system is approved.
The council also proposed setting up a fund for national human resources development that will provide private sector jobs to unemployed Emiratis and support nationals who want to set up their own business. DAJ/Expat Media
