In an effort to curb delayed salary payments, the Labor Minister, Saqr Ghobash, issued a decree enforcing the recently introduced Wages Protection System (WPS), reports WAM. All companies registered with the Labor Ministry will be required to begin salary payments to its employees through the WPS in September 2009.

“The WPS reflects the UAE’s pioneering position in the region, and will increasingly project the country as a model worth emulating in the area of boosting the rights of workers,” explained Ghobash. “It is our ethical and legal responsibilities to always strive to come up with innovative means of implementing our leadership’s policies which aim at providing secured and stable environment and at protecting the rights of all segments of the society,” he added.

    Do they also consider reviewing each employees contractual agreement to their employer? Wages protection program should make sure not just the employer is paying the employee monthly, but ensuring that the employer must pay his employee in accordance to the contract that is under in the UAE Labour Law. Send your staff out to inspect if you are really have the concern.
