Salary increase for these Dubai employees


DUBAI – A new salary scheme approved by Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum ensures that government employees in Dubai will get a salary increase.

Under the new salary scheme—retroactive from January 1—employees will get an average of 10 percent increase, with professionals getting up to 16 percent increase.

Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, on Monday (January 20) said that the salary increase will “further enhance government excellence by investing in human capital and retention of talent”.

The scheme sets a minimum wage for fresh Emirati graduates, and allows employees to work flexible hours and take on part-time work.

“We are significantly focused on developing people and are committed to the principles of fairness and equal opportunities,” Sheikh Hamdan said.
