Explained: The rules of working part-time in the UAE

Spread the love

I am a senior citizen expat having a valid residence visa and work permit in Dubai. I have an approval from the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation (MOHRE) to work part time in another company in Dubai. Is there any maximum limit in my hourly remuneration package I get from the part-time employer? What happens if the remuneration I get from the part time employer exceeds what is stated in the contract approved by the MOHRE? If my main employer wants to stop paying me salary just because I am getting remuneration from the part-time employer, can I accept his decision?


“The original employer shall be liable for the employee’s annual leave and end-of-service gratuity as well as any other financial obligations in proportion with the actual work hours and the wage received by the employee.”
