As the Law has changed and all Domestic Workers who are sponsored by individuals as opposed to Companies are now to be applied and approved by the Labour Dept, there are some new rules and regulations governing their employment.
Please find attached the UAE Labour Law Annex which is in relation to the Housemaid/Driver/Nanny rights and work policies
The attached Annex clarifies some points that have raised questions on Annual leave - Rest days - Working Hours and the responsibilities of the Maid and Employer.
This Annex is in alignment with the 2 page Contract the Maid and Employer normally sign, so in signing the 2 page Contract you are agreeing to this Annex and its contents also.
We strongly advise you read the Annex so you are clear on what the Law is providing for Domestic workers now that this employment process falls under the Ministry of Labour and subsequent laws.
