UAE Unemployment Insurance scheme: How it works
The insurance scheme is divided into two categories – the first covering those with a basic salary of Dhs16,000 and less.
The cost for the insured employee in this category is set at Dhs5 per month, or Dhs60 annually.
The second category includes those with a basic salary exceeding Dhs16,000, and the insurance cost is Dhs10 per month, or Dhs120 annually.
The payment can be made by the employee monthly, quarterly, half-yearly, or on an annual basis.
The value of the insurance policy is subject to value-added tax (VAT).
And commission-based workers can also subscribe.
