In line with the Year of Tolerance, the UAE's Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation on Sunday announced that it has cancelled the violations and fines of more than 27,000 establishments and 12,000 employees committed before August 1, 2019.
Thanks to Minister of Human Resources Nasser bin Thani Al Hamli's 2 approved decisions, two categories of employees now have the chance to have their work permits reissued. Workers of the third to fifth skill levels who ended their contractual relationship with their employers during the probation period are eligible.
The second category includes employees failed to visit the ministry within 60 days of issuing a judicial ruling in their labour disputes, Al Marzouqi added.
Al Hamli said that both decisions are initiatives that reflect the care UAE's leadership shows to noble human values in the country. "The ministry's continuing attempts to enhance values of tolerance create more stability in the work relations between employers and employees", he added.
Noura Al Marzouqi, Assistant Undersecretary for Policy and Strategy at the ministry said that removing the suspension of the concerned establishments came after the ministry made sure they weren't suspended by any other authorities, as they provided all rights to all of their employees.
"The new decision doesn't affect any financial rights to the country," she added.
