Gratuity calculation UAE labour law-Unlimited contract

Gratuity calculation UAE Labour Law

I have previously written about Gratuity calculation under UAE Labour Law. There were few confusions and clarifications sought. I was continuously speaking with HR professionals here in UAE and I have arrived on How to calculate Gratuity or End of Service Benefit under UAE Labour Law?

Below is the paragraph from UAE Labour Law:

Article 137: Where a worker under an indefinite term contract abandons his work at his own initiative after a continuous service of not less than one year and not more than three years, he shall be entitled to one-third of the severance pay provided for in the preceding article. Such a worker shall be entitled to two thirds of the said severance pay if his continuous service exceeds three years up to five years, and to the full severance pay if it exceeds five years.

Gratuity is always calculated on the basis of the last drawn Basic Salary during your time of termination or resignation. An employee shall be entitled to Gratuity at 21 days of Basic Salary for  each year of his/her service.

Gratuity calculation UAE Labour Law 2012 in case of Resignation:

1. Gratuity Calculation UAE Labour LawWithin one year- No Gratuity

2. Gratuity Calculation UAE Labour Law: More than one year but less than 3 years: 1/3rd of 21 days basic salary each year of service.

Below are details with example:

Example:

  1. Basic salary = AED 10,000 per month
  2. Joining date = 01-01-2010
  3. End date = 31-03-2011
  4. Total number of days worked = 455 days
  5. Total number of years worked = 1.25 years
  6. 21 days’ Basic salary = AED 6904.1
  7. Wages per day = AED 10,000*12/365= 328.76
  8. Amount: 21*328.76*1.25 = 8,606.49
  9. Gratuity Amount: 1/3*8606.49 = 2,868.83
 In the above example if the you have worked for 1 .5 years, (updated after error notified by Mr. Ali) your total Gratuity will be around: AED 10,500 (but you receive 2/3rd of the total amount in case of resignation).

3. Gratuity calculation UAE labour law for More than 3 years but less than 5 years: 2/3rd of 21 days basic salary each year of his/her service.

Below are details with example:

  1. Basic salary = AED 10,000 per month
  2. Joining date = 01-01-2008
  3. End date = 31-03-2011
  4. Total number of days worked = 1,186 days
  5. Total number of years worked = 3.25 years
  6. 21 days’ Basic salary = AED 6904.1
  7. Wages per day = AED 10,000*12/365= 328.76
  8. Amount: 21*328.76*3.25 = 22,433
  9. Gratuity Amount: 2/3*22,433 = 14,955.75

4. Gratuity Calculation UAE Labour law: More than 5 years 

  1. Basic salary = AED 10,000 per month
  2. Joining date = 01-01-2005
  3. End date = 31-03-2011
  4. Total number  of days worked (31-03-2011-01-01-2005+1)= 1916 days
  5. Total number of years he worked=1916/365= 5.25
  6. 21 days’ Basic salary = 328.76*21= AED 6,904.1
  7. 30 days basic salary=328.76*30= AED 9,863.01
  8. Wages per day = AED 10,000*12/365= 328.76
  9. Total gratuity=21*328.76*5=34,520.55+(1,916/365-5)*30*328.76=2,459.00=36,979.5

Gratuity calculation UAE labour law in case of Termination:

1. Within a year – No Gratuity
2. More than a year but less than 5 years: 21 days of Basic Salary for every year of service.
3. More than 5 years: 21 days’ basic salary for upto 5 years plus remaining years*30 days’ basic salary *per day wage.

Article 138
Where a worker under a definite term contract abandons his employment at his own initiative before the expiry of his contract period, he shall not be entitled to severance pay unless his continuous period of service exceeds five years.

    I am working for a hotel in Dubai. In my contract its mention that 24 months of service you will be entitled to a home leave benefit which consists of an excursion fare round trip airfare from Dubai. I completed my 3 Years of service with same company. And i used my company ticket in last Sep 2013. But when i resigned from this company they are charging me for that ticket which i used in last Sep 2013
    And can you please explain me that one thing more. i am entitled for return air ticket from my company side. or i have to buy my own return ticket.

      Airfare depends on company policies. However, if they have mentioned that you are entitled for ticket every 2 years and since you have completed 3 years, the company may not deduct the airfare.

    I am working more than 3 years within the company but didn’t get a gratuity. The reason why is base on article 120, is there any exception to take measure and get my gratuity?

      There is no exception(not that I am aware of) if your employment is continuous. The company should pay you your rightful EOSB.

      Hi Johan,

      commission is irrelevant to gratuity computation..since you are nearing 5 years in service why don’t you finish it? so you would get 100%

      If your contract says you have Basic of 5,500 then it will be 5,500. Please note that salary in labour contract sometimes are broken into Basic+housing+others or Basic only..like for example..you are receiving 5,500 but in your contract it says Basic (2,000)+transpo or housing (1,000) + others (2,500)..the computation of gratuity will be your basic of 2,000.

    Hi Deepak

    I would request to calculate my gratuity based on the following details:

    Starting Date: 1st May 2008
    Resignation Date: August 2014
    Basic Salary :2700

    In the mentioned period i got AED.1000 in increment in my overall salary. But it remains unclear to almost all employees about the nature of increment ie whether its on basic salary or not .. as HR is not much frank about such matters. So from which other source/authority we can ascertain our real basic salary?

    Thank you

    Hi Deepak,

    Was wondering if you could help me with the following question please. I am just wondering how the daily rate is calculated for gratuity. There is say 22 working days a month. Lets say I get paid 22,000 AED per month and I dont work weekends and the law says I should get paid 30 days after 5 years. Shouldnt it be calculated as 22,000/22 working days per month = 1,000 AED per day as I get paid 1,000 AED for every day i work. Then I get 30 days for every year, so it should be 30,000 AED for every year. Is this not correct? Thanks and appreciate your time.

    Will I get an employment ban?

      You will be entitled for gratuity till your last working day. If your last working day is 31 July then for sure you are entitled. If company provides you release then there won’t be any ban

    Hi Mr. Deepak,
    I have unlimited contract , working for 2 1/5 years.
    My company terminated me and I ask them what is the reason as I did not violate any of the grounds listed in the UAE Labor Law to terminate an employee so what they did they put a reason is redundancy which not true as the company is still hiring same position with mine.
    1.I want to ask if this a ground for Unfair dismissal?
    2. They have given me one month notice to hand over the job on hand but I am working as an estimator so there no much work to hand over, I want to ask if do I still need to work during notice period knowing I have nothing to hand over and they mentioned in their letter of termination that I will report to office during notice period for handing over.
    3. What will be my gratuity computation.
    4. They mentioned also in the termination agreement that they will release me anytime I can find new employment during notice period, does this mean that I can leave anytime during my notice period if I find new job?
    Thanks,
    Leslie

    I need clarification of what a an “unlimited contract ” is and how is it specified in a contract.
    My facts:
    I signed a 2 year contract with a specific start and finish date, and my work visa is only for 2 years.
    I made it clear to my employer that I will complete the two years and I would not be interested in reapplying for another contract with them.
    As the contract is coming to a close they have provided me with a “certificate of dues” for me to sign off. They claim that I am only entitled to 14 days of salary as an end of service benefit. Essentially I am getting 1/3 of 21 days per year instead of 21 days for each full year completed. They are claiming that I “resigned” from an unlimited contract and I say that I completed my 2 year contract in good faith and I am entitled to 21 days pay for each year. There is no where on my contract that says unlimited and it clearly states a 2 year time period. This is a contract with a private school in Al Ain so I am wondering if ADEC has any play in this matter? Please advise.

    Hi Deepak,

    We want to terminate the contract of one of our Sales employee (working with us for 7 years), since he’s frustrating colleagues and a couple of our clients don’t want to deal with him anymore because they can’t trust him anymore.
    If we terminate his contract based on above, is he besides his gratuity, entitled to any other compensation?

    Thanks

    Thanks for your unwanted support from all Expat here in UAE

    I am in Sharjah Airport Freezone Visa, my contract signs is only 5000 Basic all in but my actual salary is amounting 6000 dhs total. I don’t know what are the reasons of keeping the always the Contracts below the actual Salary.

    I Started worked Oct.16,2011 and Planning to End and leave my JOb by July 16, 2014. Kindly calculate the amount of Gratuity I can get? What they will consider legally the 5000dhs or the actual amount 6000dhs? If so please calculate for the same.

    Thank you and more power to you. God Bless

    for the 4th example : >>4. Gratuity Calculation UAE Labour law: More than 5 years

    you calculated the total number of days as 1916 but actually it is 2281

    Total number of days worked (31-03-2011-01-01-2005+1)= 2281.

    Better you update the site to avoid confusion.

      your total gratuity would be 3300 which she is eligible for 2/3rd of it.
      if she has not completed her contract i dont think she is entitled for any gratuity better to check with the embassy.
      Since she is resigning she has to bear the ticket cost

    In my contract the basic salary AED8500 and AED8500 mentioned as other allowances. ( Total Salary AED17000)

    When a termination or resignation happens the end of service will be calculated on the basis of AED8500 or on my total salary AED17000?

            Hi Mr. Deepak,

            My company has made settlement but regarding Gratuity they are giving only 8085/- because they are saying I have not completed 5 years and it is short by 10 days, contract is unlimited and I resign these are the excuse given by them. But as per your information it may be around 11,000/- ( considering 3500/- as basic salary). They are considering 14 days instead of 21 days salary only. Please suggest me urgent as they still not cancelled my visa.

      According to Art. 137 and Art. 138, it could be divided by “Unlimited Period” and “Limited Period”.

      The answe would be much appreciated.

      If he resigns then i dont think he is eligible for air ticket. However it depends on company policy.
      Employee has to give notice as per the contract terms. If he does not give then company has the right to deduct notice period salary from his EOSB

      1. Yes. Employee is eligible for gratuity 21 days basic salary per year if he was terminated by the employer on limited contract
      2. As per your employment agreement
      3. No gratuity if employee is terminated within one year. In the limited contract employee should complete the contract period to get the gratuity entitlement.

    My basic salary is AED 11500.
    I was trying to calculate it on my own…but I don’t understand the difference between 1/3 and 2/3.
    Also I do I know, what else I am entitled to for this last settlement?
    What’s about the flight ticket?

    It’s very important for me to know it at the earliest possible pls pls

    Hi Sir I would like to ask about my gratuity computation. I started working February 15 2011, and I resigned just this previous month. March 20 2014 will be my last day
    . So my gratuity will be included in how many days computation? Because my company counted as to 14 days computation only.

    Mr. Deepak, I find your Calculation is helpful. But I have some doubt regarding getting the basic salary. In my contract it says I have basic 4,400 for 7,500 monthly salaries. But now I am 5 years and 6 months in my company and my salary increased to 11,000. Thus my basic will still be the same? Or you know how much I am getting if I resign now?

    Thanks & regards!

    Can you advise on the following….

    I have been working for a school for the past 5 years, it will be 6 years in June. If i give my resignation in now, which will be after the schools resignation period, can they penalize me?

    They are threatening to;

    - not give me full gratuity (5 years gratuity and not 6 years)
    - pay back visa costs for the remainder of the visa
    - ask to payback a flight cost

    Thanks

        Your unpaid leaves will not be taken into consideration while computing gratuity. Since it is a resignation i dont think company will give you a air ticket to your home country. You will receive your gratuity once all the cancellation formalities done .

    Hello Mr. Deepak:

    while in calculation of Gratuity, one question pops in mind.,
    i.e number of years of service for instance i worked from 01-01-2000 to 31-12-2004, in between i went for 4 Annual vacations.

    Should i be ommitting the Vacation period while calculating number of days working? Since, i have not served the company.
    (365×4)+1 day leap less days i dint serve 120 day= 1461-120=1341 days. total No of years worked = 3.67 Years. Based my basic @ 4000
    (4000 Basic x12 Months) / 365 days = 131.51 per day
    21 Days Basic wage = 131.51 x 21 = 2761 Multiplied x 2/3rd 1841 per yr
    Payable years = 3.67 Years x 1841= 6,757/-

    do you feel, okay with the above.

    Hopefully i believe the companies would be calculating that way.

      While computing gratuity only leave without pay are excluded but if you have taken annual leave and if it is paid then for sure company will consider to compute your gratuity.

      If you dont want to renew your contract you need to inform your company by giving necessary notice as per your contract agreement. You cannot say at the end of the contract.
      It will be depend on company to provide you air fare or not
      You will be entitled for 2 yrs gratuity

      if you had a plan to not to renew your visa you should have informed the company by giving proper notice as per your contract agreement.
      In this case you have given notice just before a week. You may have to pay the compensation to the company as per company policy.

But when i tried to follow the formula the answer was 2281days (6.25yrs)? there is 365days difference from your answer. i hope you can help me understand better. Thank you in advance.

    Hi,

    Are left over vacation days added to the gratuity? Say I have 30 days vacation days – so should I just multiply 30*basic salary and add that on top of the calculation?

    Dear Deepak,
    I have been terminated from service after having served for 2years and 19 days my basic salary is 7500/- + house rent 1500/- per month. In my termination letter the employer has given me 1 months notice period, will this notice period be paid as per my gross salary ie: 9000/-
    Secondly I have a balance of 4days leave frm the previous year (2011 – 2012) and a full 30 gdays leave for the current year (2012 – 2013). My employer is paying me only basic salary and not gross salary.is this OK

    Your advise will be greatly appreciated

      You are entitled to receive your notice period salary i.e gross salary. As per UAE Labour Law The employee is entitled to payment of his wages for his leave if his employment is terminated, or he left his work after the period of notice determined by law. The employee will be entitled to receive wages for the annual leave that he has not taken. Payment will be calculated on the basis of the wages he received at the time when the leave was due.(http://emiratesdiary.com/jobs-in-uae-2/gratuity-calculation-uae-labour-law-unlimited-contract)

      if your gratuity is increase by 1500 and your current basic salary is 4500 then your gratuity would be calculated on the basis of your current drawn basic salary. since you are resigning and you have worked in the company less than 3 years you are entitled for 1/3rd of your total gratuity amount.

        Dear Mr. Deepak,

        I am working as Project Manager under the visa of engineer. I have joined the private company in Dubai on 11 November 2012 under “unlimited contract”. But on 7 October 2013, company has issued termination letter with 30 days notice for an unjustifiable reason. Hence, my notice period is expiring on 6 November 2013 and i am not completing one year of employment in the company.

        - will i get labour ban ? if so, can it be lifted?
        - am i eligible to get compensation from company due to unjustifiable termination even after completion of 6 months probation.
        - is transfer of visa to another company possible?
        - what all EOSB’s are eligible for?
        - am i eligible for gratuity?
        - am i eligible for leave pay? if so for how many days?

        Could you please throw some light on the above.
        Thank you so much….

As per my company they have forfeited my previous years leave salary and only agree for the current year. Kindly advise me on this too.

      The computation of leave salary depends on company policy.
      Some company will carry forward your leave to the next year but some company advise the employees to take leave and finish in current year. In this case if employee doesnt want to take leave then company has the right to forfeit the leave. So my advice is to employee to utilise the leave fully instead of keeping it unutilised.

      Yes if company is delaying for your cancellation process you can complain to labour office.

          This is applicable only when employee resigns from his or her job
          If you work for more than 1 year and less than 3 years your gratuity would be 1/3rd of your total gratuity amount
          If you work more than 2 years and less than 5 years your gratuity would be 2/3rd of your total gratuity amount

    Hi Deepak!!

    i was under limited contract from an agency and am working in a bank. my department is changing agencies so they asked me to resign 1 month before the expiry of my labour card and serve one month as notice period. my agency delayed 6 months in making my labour card my joining date was 20th Feb 2011 and last working date was 22nd Aug 2013.

    when it came to pay me the gratuity they are excluding unpaid leave days and also on the other hand are paying gratuity as 14days per year.

    could you highlight as to what is my graduity actually. and what is stated by the ministry of labour. because as per there calculation my graduity is adding upto AED 2667

    Basic salary : 2500
    service duration 2.5 years

      Yes unpaid leaves will be deducted while calculating gratuity.
      If you have limited contract and you have completed the contract period then you are entitled for full amount.
      If you are not comfortable with agency decision you can take this matter to labour.

    Hi Deepak,

    Here’s a case I can’t crack:
    1- Freezone employee.
    2- start date September 1 2013.
    3- resignation effective August 25 2013.
    4- 5 working days annual leave remaining (PTO).

    Will a full year considered as a completed employment period?

    Thanks.

      Is your Starting date September 1, 2012? To compute gratuity you need to complete full one year in the company. If you last working day is 25th August, then No you will not entitled for gratuity.
      If you have submitted your resignation on 25th August with one month notice period means your last working day 25th September then yes you are entitled for gratuity.

    Hi Deepak, thanks for this site, very helpful.
    I have a question that I can’t seem to find the answer to anywhere. I understand the calculation varies whether I have an unlimited or limited contract.

    I had a limited contract (2 years) but continued working without explicit renewal, nothing was signed, nothing was mentioned.
    now, after 3.5 years, I resigned. My company tells me because I continued working, I now have an unlimited contract automatically and my end of service will be calculated as per that (2/3 of gratuity pay is I worked over 3 years but under 5 years)

    Is this right? It feels like I’m being punished for staying longer because I’m not getting the 21 days I feel I’m owed on a limited contract.

    Thanks again

      As per unlimited contract yes your gratuity would be 2/3rd i.e 14 days per year not 21 days.
      Anyway if you need more clarification about your contract you may go to labour department and discuss this issue.

    Do those years count also? The U.A.E. contract states specifically its a continuation and relocation. If not, what other benefit would it bring related to the gratuity?

    Furthermore, in the last 1 year (from 11/Nov/2012 until 10/Nov/2013), I have not taken my 30 days vacation. This as I understand will be paid to me along with the gratuity. My question is, does this payment be based on Basic + Housing (10k + 4k) or only on my Basic salary?

          No it will be calculated till your 4 years and 10 mths. To get five years gratuity you need to complete your five years in the company. Usually ticket is not encashed. If you resign you wont be entitled for any annual ticket.

    1) Am I bound to take gratuity now …as I am still working with this company and I want to take these fund at the end of service.

    2) how do I calculate my BASIC salary, as my company has calculated my gratuity on 40% of my salary 7500 AED instead of complete 7500 AED……stating that the basic salary is calculated on 40% of the Salary……in that case should they not include my housing allowance in salary and then calculate the 40% of the same..??

    Dear Deepak, I’m under Unlimited contract, working for more than 6 yrs in the company, I just got terminated from my company due to minor offence that I’m not able to perform well on my work and had more than 20 days absences within this year, however, the termination letter that I signed states nothing regarding the article 120 of UAE law but qoutes that “The final settlement will be calculated as per the UAE law” and the termination seems to be generalized as there’s no reason specified on the termination letter that it was because of my absences. May I know if my gratuity will be possible to be forfeited as I’m so worried and too afraid that it might happen and since I’m depending only on that for what would happen to me in the future. I hope you could advise me regarding this manner. Thank you.

Believe me or not, for my 4 yrs.of duty this August 2013, I didn’t make any absent but my salary is only 3,400 7 days a week, 12 hrs. a day, 30 days a month of work regardless of what shift. My questions are; Aside from gratuity, do am I entitled for other claims? Like Fridays and Holidays and sick leave? My contract is unlimited and my basic salary is AED 2000. I didn’t received any payslips too. In your initial estimates how much could I get if I will cancel my contract later this year? Please reply because a lot of security guards will benefit from your answer. Thanks a lot!

    Hi Deepak,

    I really seek the answer. Hope you can provide me the right one.
    Someone close to me work for a company for 13years, now he went for a vacation last year, during his vacation he sent a resignation letter thru e-mail and informed them he will stay home ‘for good’ and then the company acknowledge the letter, he thought after they have acknowledge his resignation he can get his settlement the same time last year, but the company told it has to go in due process to wait for 6months as per labor they told. Then he said Ok will wait.. then now time came six months over, they have cancelled his visa, then a devastating final settlement of five thousand only, i dont know how they have calculated that much, very sad for him, that’s why i have take up this concern to you if you can tell me if he has the right to questioned the company and can run for the right settlement for him.. He have worked for the company for 13years, has a basic salary of 2,100 before allowances, he was in limited visa. Should you need more info please let me know so I can add. Thank you very much.

      Hi chiq, Gratuity shall be always calculated on the last drawn basic salary . If your last drawn salary is 3,500 you need to have atleast payslip or bank statement. On the basis of 3,500 salary your gratuity would be almost 7K

    I have been working for a company for 3 years and 6 months on an unlimited contract. Now they will be cancelling my visa as my visa will be applied for again since the entire workforce under the company will be under a new management so they made us sign resignation papers so our visas could be applied for again under the new company. In this case
    1) How will my gratuity be calculated. My basic is 2222.Have worked for 3.6 years.
    2) How will my annual leave be calculated. I have 15 days remaining leave to be encashed. My total salary is 3500.
    3) My contract says I am entitled to a return economy class ticket on the completion of 2 years.I received one ticket after 2 years. Now that they have cancelled my visa and I have spent an additional 1.6 years in the company will I be eligible to get a certain amount of ticket value in cash?

    Hi Deepak,

    I am currently working with one of Banking Firm in Dubai from August 1st, 2006. I have joined with 2000 as basic salary unlimited contract. Now my Basic Salary is 9500 after 7 years. But I do not have Employment Contract with me. I do have latest Salary Certificate and Monthly Bank Transfer.

    1) Can company claim/calculate my gratuity with 2000 Aed Basic salary on Joining date as i do not have updated Employment Contract.

    As I am in sales, every month they give provision for Advance Commission 2500. Normally if a person leaves the company, the company deduct advance commission from gratuity.

    2) Are they legal to do so?

    Will a limited tenure contract, with a period of 1 year only, mentioned in the Arabic Contract, be valid ?

    We have to recruit a few people for one of our projects. They are required to work for only 8 – 12 months.

    What would be the best possible way to employ them, and be consistent with the labor law as well ?

      Hi Vikram, Yes it is valid if it is issued from Ministry of Labour.You need to do the same procedure for the visa eventhough you want them to work for 8-10 months. There is one option mission visa. for that you need to check in the immigration.

        Thanks Deepak. However, in my labour contract my basic salary was AED 6,500. What amount should be the basis to calculate my gratuity…. is it 6,500 as per my labour contract or 10,000 that I am currently receiving. Please advice. Many thanks in advance.

            Thanks again. however is there any written law stating ‘Gratuity shall be calculated on the basis of the current drawn basic salary’.
            I don’t have any signed or agreed documents with the company that AED 10,000 is my last drawn salary but it was in WPS…
            Please advice… Thank you in advance.

Also please note that my current Basic salary is Aed 5000 but in labour contract only Aed 4000 is mentioned. But i am having last 2 months salary slips provided by the company on which it is clearly mention that my Basic is Aed 5000. Also kindly confirm regarding the leave salary also as i am almost completing my 7th year now. So m i eligible for the leave salary or not

    Good afternoon

    I was recently laid off from my Company after serving a little over 3 years. Their calculation of settlement pay has been based on 7 days per year as opposed to 21 days per year. The reasoning is because my contract stipulates ‘unlimited’ – is this correct?

      It does not matter whether contract is limited or unlimited …..If it is a termination you are entitled to 21 days salary per year. NOT 7 days.

    Dear Sir,

    I am looking forward for most reliable advise. My husband is an architect in one of known company in UAE. He is working in the company from June 28,2008 till date (2012) and the company is now in unstable condition. My question is if my husband will not continue or the company will not renew his visa how much gratuity he can receive from the company? His basic salary is AED3500. In addition, his visa is limited, what are the consequences, we may face in Labor & immigration. Furthermore, im in husband visa as well working in another company.

    Your advise will be helpful.

    Thanks,

    Appreciate for your reply. I have been working in a company apprx. 8 years in abu dhabi. I have got a one month notice (release notice). I understand release notice is nothing but some twisted meaning of termination. How much salary I am eligible for this release notice? One month or three month?

      If it is mentioned in your employment contract about OT then you are supposed to get Overtime.
      If not you cannot claim….
      As per UAE Labour Law OT will be paid as below:
      If the nature of the job requires an employee to work overtime, the employee is entitled to overtime pay which is equivalent to the wage paid during ordinary working hours plus an additional amount of not less than 25% of the wage for the over time period. However, if the employee’s overtime falls between the hours of 9.00pm and 4.00am, he will be entitled to overtime pay which is equivalent to the salary payable during normal working hours plus an increase of not less than 50% of his wage for the overtime period worked.

      If circumstances require the employee to work on a Friday, he is entitled to receive a rest day in lieu to be taken at a later date or be paid his basic wage plus an additional 50% (minimum) of that wage. However, employees cannot be asked to work two consecutive Fridays unless their wages are calculated on a daily basis. In any case, overtime should not exceed two hours per day, unless it is necessary to prevent substantial loss, a serious accident or to remove traces of such an accident or reduce its effect.

      However, the above provisions are not applicable to the following persons:
      (1) Persons in senior positions, or in administrative supervisory roles, if such persons have similar authority over employees as the employer.

I was released from my previous site due to manpower surplus last september 15 and the HR told me to wait for their call If there is a new site that will accommodate me, three weeks had past and no call from our HR, so i contacted them and they gave me an option between long leave and termination. I chose termination and they terminated me last October 17. Am I entitled for month salary for the jobless period? How will I compute for my gratuity and compensation if my basic salary is 4000 and 2000 for housing and transportation allowance?

    3.End date = 31-03-2011
    4.Total number of days worked = 455 days
    5.Total number of years worked = 1.25 years
    6.21 days’ Basic salary = AED 6904.1
    7.Wages per day = AED 10,000*12/365= 328.76
    8.Amount: 21*328.76*1.25 = 8,606.49 (This would be GRATUITY if you were TERMINATED?)
    9.Gratuity Amount: 1/3*8606.49 = 2,868.83 (GRATUITY if you resigned having worked between 1 and 3 years?)
    In the above example if the you have worked for 1 year 2 months, your gratuity will be around: AED 10,500. (HOW DID YOU GET TO THIS AMOUNT?)

      Hi Anne,

      I was also a bit confused at first but I believe Deepak made a typo error. If you are on an unlimited contract and you resign, with the above example, your gratuity will only be AED2,876.74.

      If however, you are on a limited contract and you did not finish your initial contract (type of contract can be seen on your Labour Contract issued by the Ministry), then you will get any gratuity pay.

      Hope the above helps!

    Dear Deepak,

    I started with a limited contract for 2 years which I have completed. I continued to work without a further contract. According to our HR, the subsequent work period is considered unlimited contract. I have since completed 8 months for the subsequent period. Please advise on my gratuity payment if I resigned by the 9th month. My basic salary is AED20000.

      Dear Mr. Deepak, for Jane’s case, I think it is a limited contract becos she mentioned contract is written as 2 years. If it is limited contract than then gratuity should be 21 days for each year of service instead of the 7 that you have mentioned. You may want to advise instead how the balance 6 months should be calculated if it falls under the category of unlimited contract.

    I’ll be with my company in sept. 5th for 3 yrs. I resigned last Aug. 23,2012 I asked the HR about how they’ll compute for my gratuity,my contract is UNLIMITED and i still have like more than 30 days leave balance. their computation is Basic x 12 months/365 days…. and they are giving gratuity as follows..2 yrs or less =7 days….3yrs -5 yrs.14 days and 21 days if you did 5yrs and up.
    and i’m not sure if they will consider my 30 days notice as part of my 3yrs.for I resigned weeks early to complete my 3yrs. i’m having the impression that the’yll count until my last day of notice.
    my basic is 2,700( from2600 since i started in 2009) i had salary increased twice but they put more amount in the allowance.
    Please reply as soon as possible so that there’s something I can say to our HR if they will do it wrong. Thanks a lot.

      Gratuity is always calculated on the basis of last drawn basic salary. You are entitled to have gratuity till your last working day …if you resigned on 23rd of Aug, your notice period will end on 22nd of Sept. So you are entitled for gratuity till 22nd of sept. Yes ofcourse you will have your gratuity for 14 days…means 2/3rd of your total amount of gratuity plus unutilised leave amount. All the best.

        Hi,

        Thanks for your useful advises.

        I have a question regarding the balance leave. I resigned from my company after 3 and a half year. And I have 45 days unused leave. My salary structure is as follows:

        Basic 14,000, accommodation 4,000 and transport 1,500

        While calculating the balance leave shall we consider only the basic? I really appreciate your help.

        Thanks,

      If you have had already taken 7 years gratuity out of 8 and half years now you are entitled AED 4,438.03(approximately) and notice period as per your contract.

    I joined in a govt sector on 16th May 2000 and got terminated on 29th Feb 2012. During my tenure with them there was 2 years our contract changed to Lumpsum (no end of service benefits during that time as per contract). Joined in 2000 in one contract (private company management under govt. sector) after 3 years changed to another contract which is directly by govt.. After that 2 years under Lumpsum as mentioned previously and rest again under Govt. directly. During these years there was salary raise and the promotions. Could you please advice me what will be my gratuity.

      I am in confusion with your case. if it is written no gratuity in his 2 yrs contract he will not be entitled. during the other period of contract in govt company you should be entitled to gratuity on the basis of last drawn basic salary. However, you are to contact your HR or the Ministry of Labour for further details and clarifications.

      vacation leave also added while calculating gratuity. Only unpaid leaves will be deducted from the total no of days worked.

        Query 1 . you have shown above the gratuity calculation for unlimited contract if the person resigns or is terminated which is 1\3 in case of 1-3 years and 2\3 in case of 3-5 years and above 5yrs full gratuity.what if the employee is under limited contract and resigns or gets terminated .

        Thank you;)
