Wage Protection System

The UAE government has put in place a system called the Wage Protection System (WPS) to make sure workers get paid on time and protect their rights. The WPS expects bosses to move pay rates electronically to their employees financial balances through an endorsed bank. All private sector employees, including domestic workers and those earning daily wages, are covered by the system.

The WPS was created to protect workers from wage delaying or non-payment and to ensure transparency in salary payments. Failure to adhere to the WPS can result in fines, penalties, and even the suspension of an employer's business license.

The WPS has been successful in promoting employee welfare and reducing wage-related disputes. Employees are encouraged to work harder and have more faith in their employer because of the system's transparent and secure means of paying them.
