“Your correct legal status is your peace of mind,” the ministry stated, underscoring the importance of respecting the country’s laws and regulations.
The ministry also shared a video highlighting the experience of an Egyptian expatriate named Alaa’, who faced challenges over late salary payments.
Alaa’ explained his situation in the video, detailing how his company initially agreed to transfer his salary through an exchange company. However, the company later failed to ensure timely payments, placing Alaa’ in a precarious financial situation. Having to cover rent, school fees and daily expenses, Alaa’ had to resort to loans.
Repeated attempts to contact his employer met with little success and promised payments were continually delayed. In desperation, Alaa’ decided to file a complaint with the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratization.
A colleague informed Alaa’ that his salary and outstanding dues would be transferred thanks to the ministry’s intervention. The company had been notified of its failure to meet its responsibility to regularly pay Alaa’s wages through the Wage Protection System (WPS).
Alaa’ concluded his story on a positive note, expressing his gratitude for the ministry’s help. With his salary finally received on time, he was able to pay off his debts and cover his expenses.
