Abu Dhabi: The United Arab Emirates is taking steps to implement the law on the Indigenization of the United Arab Emirates. Officials have warned that companies that hire the United Arab Emirates and those who have not completed the level of naturalization required by the country will face severe penalties from the beginning of next year. The United Arab Emirates Human Resources Ministry has warned companies about this. Officials have instructed the Indigenous people to be repatriated by the end of this year.
There are only 50 days to implement the law
Accordingly, there are only 50 days to implement the law, the ministry said yesterday. The United Arab Emirates Ministry of Human Resources and Indigenousization has recommended that companies with more than 50 employees implement two percent indigenous people in the field of skilled labor this year.
The ministry issued an order in May this year. The ministry has proposed to reach the target by the end of this year. Accordingly, by January 1 next year, companies that do not comply with this order must pay a fine. Companies are fined $ 72,000 each year for non-recruited natives. Accordingly, from January 2023, you will have to pay a fine of 6000 dirham every month for not hiring a native. Depending on the level of indigenousization in the country, there are 50 skilled employees, at least one native should work in the company.
Accordingly, companies with more than 50 employees must use at least two Natives. The Ministry has also announced the benefits of targeting companies, not only penalties but also dismissal. If adequate natives are hired, the company will be considered the first type of company. By adding to the Dawdeen Partner Club, the targeting companies will get a discount of up to 80 per cent of the ministry’s service charge. By the end of this year, it has been decided to increase the proprietary rate to two percent. The ministry aims to increase it to 10 percent by 2026.
Officials said private companies are receiving all necessary assistance from the ministry to achieve this goal of indigenousization. Offer and support packages are offered under the Emirathi Skill Competitive Council.
The ministry on Friday insisted that the companies were ready to help them achieve their goals. The ministry said that indigenousization efforts are part of efforts to promote the UAE labor market in collaboration with the private sector to help companies, investors, entrepreneurs and talent around the world to work in the United Arab Emirates to achieve a better business and investment environment.
The private sector of the country will be strengthened
In private companies, the UAE’s employment-related activities are carried out in two ways. The first of these is to expand the site of jobs available to citizens in the private sector. The other was to prepare the necessary organizations to support the lives of citizens – the ministry made it clear.
The ministry said theb program would help the United Arab Emirates enter the private sector in all ways with the strong support and encouragement of the government.
