Default Gratuity and Multi Nationals

hope Meow is all over this like a rash

Multi national sends people to UAE on 2-3 contracts and their salary is split 50/50 host and home country with pension benefits etc intact at home

can they ask staff to sign a waiver to UAE gratuity ?

Hello!

In short, possibly. It depends on the contracts and how they are worded. If appropriate alternate benefits are provided and staff agree to sign the waiver then it will be legally binding.

Show them a column from the paper if it helps. Or let me know if you want an email from me.

Just out of interest, what is a standard UAE gratuity at the end of a 2 year contract?

21 days pay for each year of service is the standard calculation, but there can be differences in fixed terms contracts.

Thanks for that. I assume if the contract is renewed after the 2 years, the gratuity continues to build up?
