2012 – A year of Compensation links for the UAE

UAE-41-National-Day-LogoHere is a gift for my readers: one year ago I wrote a piece describing the challenges facing HR and Compensation professionals in the UAE.

I have compiled the most relevant articles published since, in order to update you on the latest trends affecting the work environment in the UAE. The information is compiled by topic so you can go directly to the information most relevant to you.

Here are the topics :

  1. UAE general and economic environment
  2. Challenges for the mixed sociatey of the UAE
  3. … And reasons to boast (after all, it is National Day !)
  4. UAE labour law and cases
  5. Healthcare
  6. Pensions for UAE Nationals
  7. Other debates and requests from the FNC for UAE citizens
  8. Pensions and retirement for expats in the UAE

And don’t miss the links to the posts I wrote on these topics at the very end…

I hope you enjoy this compilation and will use it and share it with your colleagues 🙂

Happy National Day !

UAE general and economic environment

Challenges for the mixed society of the UAE

… and reasons to boast

UAE labour law and cases

OK, first the legal bla bla : I am not a lawyer so the sources in this document are for information only and you need to check with your own lawyer before making any decision affecting your company. Common sense, really !

Healthcare in the UAE

Pensions for UAE Nationals

  • An overview of the law on pensions for UAE Nationals… with more details about contributions levels and the private sector
  • And on the left column here, you can calculate the estimated pension salary – in case your Emirati employees are wondering, you can direct them here
  • FNC recommends pension changes with payment for Nationals who resign from government once they reach 20 years of service, with no minimum age restriction set at 50 years. Current laws sets a minimum age of 50 years old to receive the pension. The article contains other details regarding the financial balance required for sustainability of the pension fund.
  • This article describes discussions between the government, concerned about the financial aspects of the FNC requests to allow pensions after 20 years of service without minimum age to receive a pension, and the FNC, who wants to highlight “the humane side of things”.
