Our experts are often asked the following questions
Clients of the firm rely on our expertise on running the HR department of startups, SMEs, and corporations.
Employment contracts have to specify the start date, the kind of contract (unlimited or limited), amount of remunerations, designation, probation period, holiday entitlement, and notice period.
Unlimited contracts in UAE are valid indefinitely and can be terminated anytime by either the employer or the employee for various reasons as specified in UAE labor legislation. As for limited employment contracts, they are set to a limited time, and are usually linked to a residency visa’s duration. A limited contract is given to an employee when it is needed for a certain period.
Employees are entitled to gratuity pay following one year of service with an employer or organization; however, employees won’t receive gratuity when contracts are terminated. Gratuity pay accrues after service of five (5) years with an organization.
For an employee with more than five (5) years of service, he or she is entitled to gratuity pay similar to an employee with an unlimited contract. The calculation for gratuity pay for an unlimited contract is as follows:
- First five years of service – 21 days basic pay
- For every additional year – 30 days basic pay
The total gratuity pay shouldn’t exceed the employee’s salary for two years.
A notice period of thirty to ninety days is mandatory under UAE Labour Law. As mentioned earlier, notice period is agreed upon contract signing and has to be adhered to. The notice period can be waived if all concerned parties (employer and employee) agree.
