legal action, illegal hiring,

Since the beginning of 2022, the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation (MoHRE) has taken action against 45 establishments for conducting hiring and recruitment activities without the required licenses.

Four of the non-compliant establishments were discovered during this time period, according the ministry, during an inspection effort in Al Ain.  These negligent businesses were then reported to the Public Prosecution for follow-up action.

These four establishments have been the subject of legal action by the Ministry, including referrals to the Public Prosecution. Additionally, administrative penalties totalling Dh50,000 have been levied against the proprietors of these facilities. These facilities have been shut down in accordance with the punitive measures, and the Department of Economic Development has "closure stickers" on their doors to prevent access.

Domestic employees who were present in these violating offices were promised protection by MoHRE. For these workers, temporary housing has been arranged, and measures have been taken to relocate individuals who wish to work to centres that have been officially approved by the ministry.

MoHRE has stressed the value of staying away from unlicensed organizations that are active in recruitment efforts. They advise people to use the official paths authorized by the Ministry or to visit the MoHRE website at mohre.gov.ae to confirm the accreditation of these institutes. The members of the community have also been urged by the ministry to report any instances of improper hiring procedures via its official channels or by calling the designated call centre at 600590000.
