No plans to implement UAE minimum wage, government says


The UAE has no plans to implement a minimum wage policy, according to the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation.



“The UAE’s wage policies enable a flexible labour market that creates thousands of new jobs annually,” the ministry said in a statement.

The statement added that the government believes a free labour market based on supply and demand “creates the optimal conditions, under which we are able to continue to welcome thousands of guest workers to the UAE every year, while simultaneously fostering sustainable economic growth.”

The ministry added that it has not made any statements regarding minimum wages for domestic workers.



In September 2017, His Highness President Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan issued Federal Law No. 10 of 2017, which is designed to regulate the contractual relationship between employers and domestic workers and ensures legal protections to all those involved.
