Salary hike: 7% for Emiratis, 5% for expats

UAE Nationals will receive seven per cent, while expatriate employees will receive five per cent salary increase, based on their excellent performance under the recently-reported increment for Dubai government employees, according to media reports.

His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE in his capacity as Ruler of Dubai, on Wednesday ordered the payment of annual performance-based increment for employees of the Government of Dubai for the year 2010.

Amal Bin Adi, Director General of the Human Resources Department of Dubai Government, told Emarat Al Youm that increment will be given on basic salary. She was aforementioned that those UAE nationals whose performances just meet the expectations will get only three per cent salary hike of their basic salary.

The Human Resources Department also pointed up that those members of staff who have accomplished six months in the position and those who are on duty and not resigned from the work will qualify for the increment.

“The increment will be given to employees of 42 departments and institutions of the Dubai government under the provisions of the human resources law of the Government of Dubai No. 27 of 2006, as the amended and applied performance management system to the staff of the Government of Dubai,” she said.
