The Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation (MoHRE) has called upon licensed domestic worker recruitment agencies to adhere to their legal obligations, ensuring the rights of employers, domestic workers, and agencies are safeguarded.
A meeting held at MoHRE’s Dubai headquarters brought together 90 participants, including owners, managers, and representatives of licensed domestic worker recruitment agencies. This gathering is part of MoHRE’s regular meetings aimed at reviewing and discussing developments related to domestic workers.
During the meeting, His Excellency Abdulla Al Nuaimi, Assistant Undersecretary for Domestic Worker Affairs at MoHRE, reiterated the ministry’s commitment to conducting regular meetings with agency owners and representatives to address sector developments and improve services for employers of domestic workers.
Al Nuaimi stressed that agencies must comply with relevant laws and regulations, including housing standards for domestic workers, training, and recruitment fees, in accordance with the law.
He added, “The Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation is committed to listening to suggestions and feedback from owners and managers of agencies, in an effort to ensure stability of employment relations and develop services.”
Al Nuaimi also highlighted the ministry’s readiness to take action and implement penalties against non-compliant recruitment agencies proven to have committed violations, emphasizing the protection of all parties’ rights.
Furthermore, he urged customers to refrain from dealing with illegal recruitment agencies and unreliable social media pages promoting domestic worker services. Instead, Al Nuaimi encouraged individuals to engage with MoHRE-licensed recruitment agencies, the names and contact details of which are listed on the ministry’s website and social media pages.
