The UAE’s Labor Ministry has set up a new team to observe labor accommodation in the country, said Humaid Bin Deemas, acting director general at the ministry, reports Gulf News. “The main task of the new section will be to supervise the implementation of the new criteria for the labor accommodation in cooperation with other concerned bodies and private companies,” he said.
Earlier this year, the country approved a manual of the general criteria for workers accommodations, which came into effect at the beginning of September. Companies have been given up to five years to either build new accommodations or upgrade the current ones to meet the new standards.
“The section is to create a complete database on all labor accommodations to facilitate the implementation of the decision,” said Bin Deemas.
