UAE to lend insurance shield if you lose your job



Earlier this week the UAE announced an ‘Unemployment Insurance’ which will be effective from 2023. Abdulrahman Al Awar, Minister of Human Resources and Emiratisation on Thursday, confirmed that employees who lose their jobs under unforeseen circumstances will receive cash support. The scheme will provide up to 60% of their basic salaries every month for a limited period until they find an alternative.
The scheme applies to employees of all nationalities in the public and private sectors.
But the following categories are exempted: investors, domestic workers, employees working under temporary contracts, juveniles under the age of 18, and retirees with pensions or new job opportunities.

How to Apply and What Are the Conditions
The mandatory insurance package will cost workers an amount that ranges from Dh40 to Dh100 annually.
Employees will be able to apply for different annual packages through insurance companies to secure themselves against a potential job loss.
The redundancy payment will enable insured workers who suddenly lose their jobs to retrieve 60 per cent of their basic salaries with a maximum amount of Dh20,000 per month.
However, the support will be for a limited period of time that is not yet specified by the government.

Emirates Airline and Flydubai are hiring




The airline industry is on the bounce and in recovery mode, and a sign of it is that the two leading airlines of Dubai are recruiting. That is how Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, chairman of Dubai Civil Aviation Authority, has preferred to put it.

With the Russia-Ukraine crisis leading to rising aviation fuel costs, any recovery post the influx due to Expo 2020 has taken a beating. But Sheikh Ahmed, who is also chairman of the Emirates Airline Group, said on the sidelines of the Arabian Travel Market in Dubai that the two airlines are buoyant about their prospects and hiring towards that target.

By its own admission last year, Emirates Group had slashed its total workforce by more than a third in a series of job cuts due to lack of demand in the peak Covid-19 phase.

The state-owned Dubai-based aviation holding company posted its first loss in over 30 years, reporting a 22.1 billion dirhams ($6 billion) deficit for the financial year ended March 31, 2021, as it grappled with a huge revenue fall caused by the outbreak.

With the fall in demand, the aviation company has had to cut more than 33,000 jobs, reducing its total payroll by 31 percent to 75,145 employees that represent more than 160 different nationalities. Between 2019 and 2020, the Group employed more than 100,000 employees.
Here are some of the jobs and the requirements listed by Emirates and flydubai on their website:
