How to Send Workers to the UAE ?

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has flourished since its founding in 1971, attracting businesses and tourists from all over the world. The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is a great place to do business thanks to its thriving economy and multicultural population of more than 200 different origins.

Cross-border employment in the UAE requires attention to the following factors:

  1. A well-drafted employment contract outlining the legal relationship between the employee, the foreign entity, and the UAE-based local entity is crucial. Dual employment rights, conflicts of laws, and jurisdictional challenges might arise if these concerns aren’t dealt with effectively.
  2. The second issue is that of job continuity, which emerges when an employee is transferred from the international to the domestic company. During the relocation phase, the foreign company has the option to either continue the employment connection or end it and begin a new one with the domestic company. Both UAE law and the legislation of the foreign jurisdiction in question should be taken into account.
  3. Compensation: In international work situations, the question of who is liable for paying the worker’s salary arises. However, in order to comply with UAE legislation, certain businesses may be required to pay salaries through the UAE Wages Protection System into a local bank account, while others may choose to continue making salary payments from the overseas entity.
  4. Employees in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) are required to be paid an end-of-service gratuity (EOSG) by their local employer. However, if the foreign company provides a pension plan, the domestic company may be exempt from EOSG contributions. Such a change requires explicit contractual language.
  5. When the employment relationship ends, most problems that result from working abroad in the UAE occur. Employees have the option of filing claims for EOSG and arbitrary termination against both the foreign company and the domestic company. Claims in this regard may be heard in UAE courts, and the employee’s relationship with the foreign company may be subject to UAE labor legislation.
  6. UAE Resident Visa and Recent Developments The local firm is obligated to follow UAE employment laws, such as ensuring that all relocating employees have appropriate UAE resident visas and work permits. Penalties and legal repercussions may ensue from noncompliance. With the establishment of a remote work visa, foreign employees of non-UAE enterprises now have the option of relocating to the country and working remotely.

Employment across national borders in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) necessitates careful consideration of legal and practical considerations to maintain compliance and avoid potential difficulties.
