Dubai: A fine of 100,000 dirhams will be imposed on the establishment owner who violates the labor law

Abdallah Shahin - | Business

The Dubai Court of First Instance issued a second ruling against the establishment owner for violating the Emiratisation policy in the "Nafes" program. The owner was fined 100,000 dirhams for engaging in fraudulent Emiratisation practices. The Public Prosecution in Dubai charged him with offenses, including misusing two work permits for unauthorized purposes.

Dr. Ali Humaid bin Khatam, the First Public Prosecutor and Head of the Naturalization and Residency Prosecution in Dubai, stated that the fine increases based on the number of workers involved in the violation. In this case, the violation involved two female employees who were employed deceptively without being allowed to work.

He emphasized that the Public Prosecution in Dubai will not show leniency towards corporations that collude or demonstrate negligence in following the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation's recommendations regarding Emiratisation rates in the private sector.

He emphasized that individuals enrolled in the "Nafis" program should actively participate in their workplace and fulfill their job responsibilities. If these requirements are not met by their employers, they should report the issue to the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation. To report practices that breach legislation and policies.

The owner of a facility in Dubai was referred to court by the Public Prosecution for engaging in fictitious nationalization. The company issued work permits to two female employees but did not allow them to work, in an attempt to evade the nationalization requirements of the Nafis program. The Dubai Prosecution accused him of misusing two work permits to bypass the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation's decisions on Emiratisation rates in the private sector.

The Public Prosecution's investigations revealed that the facility utilized a fake contract to present a misleading legal facade to the Ministry. This misrepresentation allowed the facility to meet Emiratisation requirements and qualify for government support and incentives under the "Nafis" program, despite actually employing two female national employees.

The two employees were notified by the Emirates Competitiveness Council for Competitiveness (NAFES) to return the monthly support amount of 5,000 dirhams that they received for four months. This was because they were not working in the facility and their goal was solely to obtain this financial benefit.

Dr. Ali Humaid bin Khatam, a counselor, emphasized the Dubai Prosecution's commitment to enforcing Emiratisation laws to enhance citizens' efficiency and integration into the labor market. He warned that fictitious Emiratisation is a violation of the law and will be punished accordingly.

Counselor Bin Khatam urged individuals benefiting from the "Nafes" program to maintain a contractual agreement with the organization to receive a monthly salary for their services. If they encounter any issues such as inability to work or employment rejection, they should report it to the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation.
