E-Labour Cards implemented in UAE – Hefty Fines for Delays

(Dubai, 14/07/2014) The UAE Ministry of Labour (MOL) has announced that it will stop the usage of the old plastic labour cards & paper contracts starting from July 13, 2014.
The Ministry will bring in new electronic work permits & contracts in lieu of the old ones.

Who ever wondered about the deeper purpose of the so called Tas'heel Service Centres accross the UAE, should find now latest the proper answer. The move to e-labour cards with e-contracts came as a step towards e-transformation in the UAE, which is part of commitment towards the directives of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum to provide high-quality services to customers.

20140714LabourCardThe MOL stated that employers can apply for electronic labour cards and contracts through the Tas’heel Service Centres or within their companies only if they were registered under Tas’heel. Moreover they should apply for these electronic services within 60 days from the workers entry to the UAE, where the ministry will grant the applicant a preliminary approval after meeting the conditions and then issue their permits electronically. Their data will also be sent to the General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs to complete their residency procedures. The MOL has urged all companies to apply for electronic employment contracts during the prescribed period of 60 days, in order to avoid a fine of AED 1,000 for each month of delay.

The MOL also said that it will stop issuing any new work permits to uncommitted companies until they apply for the new Electronic Labour Cards & Employment Contracts if they’re required to, or provide rational justifications for not issuing them on time.

Emirates Identity Cards will be recognised as the official identification documents - especially by the inspectors of the MOL, as the ID card will not be issued to workers who do not have proper MOL work permits. Employers must handout ID cards to their owners to be ready when questioned by MOL ministry inspectors, it concluded.

Employment Contracts in UAE's Free Zones are still not concerned by this initiative of MOL.
