MOHRE fines 50 companies for illegal recruitment

The Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation (MOHRE) has fined 50 companies for illegal recruitment of domestic workers.

According to MOHRE, the companies did not have a permit and have been referred to the Public Prosecution for legal action.

Under the federal law, it is illegal to recruit or hire domestic workers without a permit from MOHRE. Violators face a minimum of one year in jail and fines of between Dh200,000 to Dh1 million.

Khalil Al Khoori, Undersecretary for Human Resources Affairs at MOHRE, said, “Legislation prohibits engaging in recruitment and mediation activities without obtaining the required permits from the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation, in line with the procedures and conditions outlined in the Federal Decree-Law Regarding the Regulation of Employment Relationships, its Executive Regulations, and all relevant Ministerial Decisions.

The Ministry is committed to enforcing legal measures and penalties against any company proven to be involved in such activities without proper licensing.”

Al Khoori said that the ministry continues to carry out inspections of suspected companies to flag unlawful practices and refer cases of violation to the Public Prosecution.

He called on community members to verify that entities advertising employment or mediation services have obtained permits from MOHRE before engaging with them to ensure their rights and avoid attempts at defrauding them.

He also encouraged the community to report violations and illegal recruitment practices to the Ministry’s call centre at 600590000 or via the MoHRE smart application. ICA/Expat Media
