They have to pass certain conditions.

Domestic helps aged over 60 can now get their labour contracts renewed under certain conditions, the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation (MoHRE) has announced. Spelling out the three conditions for this, Khalil Al Khouri, assistant undersecretary, MoHRE, said: "They should be medically fit, all charges need to be paid by the employer and all the entities concerned must approve the application."

The move is in response to the needs of employers and families who wish to keep their domestic helps after they turn 60, especially in cases where their ages do not affect performance.

Domestic helps include servants, sailors, shepherds, horse keepers, falconers, workers, housekeepers, cooks, nannies, farmers, gardeners; and private trainers, nurses, private, teachers and drivers.

More details to follow.
