We are asked regularly and would like to clarify the legal requirements of the UAE law with regards to the employment of "domestic servants":
to sponsor the employee on your visa
to pay the employee a monthly salary in a timely manner, of no less than the legal minimum per nationality
to give the employee a weekly full day off
to give the employee one month of paid holidays per year with a plane ticket home
Failure to comply can lead to legal prosecution, fines and even a prison sentence. Please email us for further information and please respect the law.
