UAE: How is gratuity calculated if salary changes during course of service?

A KT visitor intends to approximate the gained quantity for a duration of ten years

Concern: I have actually been operating in a Dubai-based business for the last ten years. I attracted a (standard) month-to-month wage of Dh6,000 for 9 years. I was provided a promo, as well as have actually been attracting a standard wage of Dh9,000 over the last one year. Exactly how will my gratuity be computed?

Action: According to your questions, it is thought that you are utilized by an exclusive landmass business based in Dubai. For that reason, the stipulations of Federal Mandate Legislation No. 33 of 2021 on the Policy of Work Relations (the ‘Em ployment Legislation’) apply to you.

In the UAE, a worker is qualified for gratuity if she or he has actually finished one year of constant solution with the exact same personal landmass business. For the initial 5 years of constant solution, a worker is qualified to obtain 21 days’ standard wage for every year of solution as gratuity. For every succeeding year of solution with the exact same company, a worker is qualified to thirty days’ standard wage as his/her gratuity. These remain in conformity with Short article 51( 2) of the Work Legislation, which specifies: “An international full time worker that finishes several years in the constant solution is qualified to a discontinuance wage, which is relied on the basis of the standard wage as complies with:

a. (21) twenty-one functioning days’ of wage for every of the initial years of solution.

b. (30) thirty functioning days’ of wage for every succeeding year of solution.”

Better, the gratuity of a worker is relied on the last standard wage attracted by the worker. This remains in conformity with Short article 51 (5) of the Work Legislation, which specifies: “Without bias to the regulation for pension plans or retired life advantages to staff members in specific facilities, the discontinuance wage will be relied on the basis of the last standard wage obtained by the international worker, for month-to-month, regular, everyday paid staff members as well as on the basis of the typical everyday wage for bit-by-bit paid staff members.”

Based upon the previously mentioned stipulations of regulation, as your existing standard wage is Dh9,000, your gratuity will certainly be relied on the exact same. Better, you are qualified for 21 days of standard wage as gratuity settlement for the initial 5 years of solution with your company, as well as after that, thirty days for one more 5 years of solution.
