The director of a private company in the UAE has been charged with falsehood of more than 40 citizens, and the public prosecution has demanded his imprisonment. This is after the Ministry of Human Resource and Emiratization (Mohre) warned the UAE Attorney General about the fake appointment.
An investigation has confirmed that the director had hired more than 40 Emirates “in an imaginary” in an attempt to capitalize on the benefits and financial support offered by the UAE government as part of the Emiratization Program.
With the help of some of his employees, he found that he had forged electronic documents and given imaginary employment contracts, and falsely stated that his company had hired citizens. A few weeks ago, Mohre revealed a similar fake job as he intensified its tests.
Administrative action has been initiated against the Emirati employer who hired 43 family members to increase emiratization rates and benefit from the NAFIS scheme. Some companies have also been warned to reduce the salaries of Emirati job seekers, who said that these citizens are eligible for cash support.
If fake emiratization is proven, administrative fines and fines against companies trying to exploit the NAFIS scheme will reach up to 100,000 dirhams per citizen. The Attorney General asked officials in private sector companies to ensure that they comply with the UAE’s Emiratization Laws.
