UAE ministry reminds private companies on timely salary payments for workers


DUBAI – The Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation reminded private sector companies to pay their employees on time through the Wage Protection System (WPS).

“The establishments’ commitment to pay wages on time would enhance the stability of the contractual relationship between its parties and greatly contribute to increasing the worker productivity as a result of paying the wages on time and in the specified amount,” said Maher Al Obed, Assistant Under-Secretary for Inspection Affairs at MoHRE, on Monday (January 10).

“The ministry also seeks to ensure the worker’s right to receive his wage in return for his commitment to perform his job duties, so as to enhance legal practices in the country’s labour market,” he added.

Al Oben said the WPS enables employers to fulfill their obligations towards their workers in the easiest way through the strategic partnership with the UAE Central Bank.

He called on employers to register and document any agreement with their workers regarding the change of wages through the approved systems and procedures.

He also recommended that employers take advantage of the Statement of Account service, a report providing comprehensive description on payment of wages through the WPS.

The Statement of Account is provided monthly to employers via email to ensure they have regular access to data and information on the salary of their workers. ICA/Expat Media
