DUBAI — The Ministry of Education has approved a standard employment contract for the teaching and administrative staff of private schools in the UAE, a senior education official has revealed.

As per the standard contract, the minimum salary for the teaching and administrative staff has been fixed at Dh2,000.

The unified contract guarantees legal rights to both the two contracting parties. The contract, copies of which will be handed over to the schools and education zones soon, also earmarks the working hours for school staff, the official added.

Ibrahim Ali, in-charge of Legal Affairs of Private Education at the Ajman Education Zone, confirmed that any contract with less than Dh2,000 salary for the administrative and teaching staff of schools would not be attested. Also, the contracts, which were not approved by the Private Education Department, would not be accepted, Ali added.

As for the working hours, Ali said no school would be allowed to make teachers work for more than the agreed hours in the contract. “Three months’ salaries will have to be paid by any party flouting the working hours provision,” he added.
