UAE Companies & 2021 National Agenda

New Rules 2017, Ministry of Labour 2017, Labor Law 2017, UAE law 2017, new law 2017

Welcome to UAE Labours free Platform, we are here with new Rules for Companies and employers beginning January 2017.

Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation announced that Companies registered with Tas’heel's online services and which employ over 1,000 or more than 1000 workers, will be required to hire 2 Emirati citizens for data entry positions starting January 2017.

Another new rule is for those companies who hired 500 or more workers are demanded to employ 1 Emirati National as a Health and Safety officer.
Constructional and Industrial sector Employers need to follow this new rule from 2017.

According to Ministry’s database, there are 375 major companies that employ over 1000 workers in United Arab Emirates.
As per Reports, there are more than 44 Tas’heel service centers supervised by Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation all over UAE where citizens can fill their positions for Data Entry Jobs or as a Health and Safety Officer.

Minister of Human Resources and Emiratisation, Mr. SAQR GHOBASH said: “The new Decree aims to provide job opportunities for nationals in the private sector under Emiratisation, hence the ministry’s recent name change”.

Mr. Ghobash added, "Emiratis' successes in that particular field have been noticed over the past years, therefore, we decided to localise data entry positions across major companies, a step we believe will bring many positive outcomes."

Ministry officials the said lists of qualified Emirati citizens who can fill up data entry jobs had been sent to targeted employers for selection.

Farida Al Ali, Assistant Under-Secretary for Emiratisation at the ministry, said the resolutions would be enforced as part of the ministry's strategy to support Emiratisation in the private sector by providing more job opportunities for national human resources in line with the UAE Vision 2021 National Agenda.

She more added ''Companies (firms) who provide work for 1,000 or more employees are demanded to register on the ministry's electronic system, Tas’heel, and to employ at least 2 Emirati employees to access that system,''

What incase of violation?
Mr. Saqr Ghobash, The Minister of Human Resources and Emiratisation, said that any violations shall cost the company additional work permits.

The Assistant Under- Secretary for Emiratisation at the Ministry, Farida Al Ali said: ''Failure to comply with this new requirement will mean that no new work permits will be granted until an Emirati is employed in the occupational health and safety role and the ministry can also impose penalties under existing regulations”.

The Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation allows companies registered in ‘eNetwasal’ online services, which is available at ministry's website, to use Tas’heel related services online without the need to visit the centre.

So, please be careful to avoid future issues, as the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation has already completed preparations required to implement 2 key resolutions on Emiratisation of positions of data entry workers and occupational health and safety officers starting within next week that is January 2017.
