Now it pays to report on UAE illegals


This was stated by Minister of Labour Dr Ali bin Abdullah Al Kaabi, on Monday at a Press conference here. “The system being currently prepared will enable the individuals and firms to inform the ministry about the illegals found working. People who inform the MoL about the illegals will be awarded Dh500,” said Dr Al Kaabi.

The Assistant Under-Secretary in the MoL, Obaid Rashid Al Zahmi, said the ministry will investigate the information it will receive from the public and the firms’ owners. The informants risk punishment in case of false reporting.

The ministry has still not decided about the penalties, he said.

Earlier, Dr Al Kaabi met the newly appointed 71 inspectors who took the oath after joining the MoL inspection team.

He said the number of inspectors will go up to 700 from the present 400 by the end of 2008.
