The Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation (MoHRE) has announced that June 30 is the final deadline for achieving Emiratisation targets for the first half of 2024.

These targets require a 1% increase in the number of UAE citizens in skilled positions at companies with 50 or more employees, as per the Council of Ministers' decisions.

In a press release, the ministry stated that from July 1st onwards, it will begin assessing companies' compliance with these targets and will impose financial penalties on those that fail to meet the requirements.

The ministry praised companies that have met the growth targets, highlighting the importance of registering Emirati employees in a pension fund and the Wage Protection System (WPS). It urged these companies to maintain the achieved growth rates by June 30.

Expressing confidence in companies' ability to meet their commitments amid the UAE's rapid economic development, the ministry noted the significant contributions of Emirati citizens in the private sector.

Additionally, the ministry encouraged companies that have not yet met their targets to use the Nafis Programme’s digital platform. This platform provides access to a large pool of qualified Emirati job seekers across various fields.
