Human Resources: There are no fees or “commissions” on employing workers within the country

The Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation has warned temporary employment and outsourcing agencies licensed to work within the country against collecting any sums or gains under the name of “commissions or fees”

The Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation has warned temporary employment and outsourcing agencies licensed to work within the country against collecting any sums or gains under the name of “commissions or fees” from the worker himself or through mediation, in return for his recruitment or employment, stressing the right to obligate the agency to provide a pledge to do so. The ministry has identified eight major obligations for employment agencies to ensure that they are controlled in carrying out their tasks, and that they are not subject to penalties or penal measures up to the temporary suspension of the agency’s license, or the cancellation of its licence.

The Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation confirmed that the activity of recruitment agencies licensed to work in the country includes “mediating”, and it is to bring the views between the two parties to the work and their representatives, and to negotiate the terms of the contract and employment with the aim of establishing a working relationship, without the agency becoming a party to it. As well as “temporary employment and outsourcing” using the worker with the intention of making him available to a third party, and the worker’s relationship becomes a direct relationship with the agency that outsourced his services to a third party (the beneficiary).
