Gratuity Calculation under UAE Labour Law 2011

Gratuity calculation under UAE labour law 2011 2012

There have been tonnes of questions, debates and doubts in the minds of several people when it comes to Gratuity Calculation under UAE Labour Law. I have talked to few well-known HR figures in Dubai and here is the feedback received from most of them:

Read updated article with example here[Click]

There are 2 scenarios:

  1. You resign from your job
  2. You are fired from your job.
  1. IF YOU RESIGN: As per the UAE Federal Government Labour Law, the Article 132 stipulates that if a worker who has completed more than one year of continuous employment in a company, then he is entitled for 21 calendar days’ remuneration(End Of Service Benefits or Gratuity) for every year that he has worked. The days of absence from work without pay are not included in calculating the period of service. If the employee has a continuous employment of more than 5 years, then he is eligible for a remuneration of 30 days’ for the number of years that he has been employed provided the aggregate amount of severance pay shall not exceed 2 years’ remuneration.
  2. IF YOU ARE FIRED: If you are fired, in addition to the above the company MAY pay you ‘n’ number of salaries for the ‘n’ number of years that you have spent with them maximum upto 3 monthly salaries. For Example: if you have been in the company for 5 years you may get an additional 3 months’ salary. (This depends from company to company. My company was kind enough and I was paid 3 salaries in addition to the EOSB).

If you have taken any salary advances for House rent or other purposes, these will be settled with your EOSB. If the advances that you have taken exceed the EOSB package, then you might need to make good the outstanding. These rules are applicable to the companies under the Ministry of Labour. Most of the Freezones follow these rules or they have similar set of rules, but they might differ.

If you have any other version please let others know in your comments. You can read the UAE Labour Law here.

So here it is. This is just a guide to Gratuity Calculation under UAE Labour Law(End of Service Benefits). These rules keep changing and you are required to keep your ears and eyes open for any announcements from the Ministry of Labour.

    You have written:

    ‘The days of absence from work without pay are not included in calculating the period of service’.

    Does this rule change in case the contract is limited/unlimited ? Service less or more than 5 years ?

    Or is it a general thumb rule we have to follow in every case?

    I am an HR Generalist in a company and just understanding the UAE law.

    Hi Mr, Deepak,
    I started working to my current company under a mission visa (feb 02 2012) for 180 days (6 months) and continue working as my visa was been converted to emloyment visa. My question is did i already complied the 2 years in service to my current company even my visa will be finished this coming september 2014? Can i transfer to other employer before the expiration of my visa since that im already working to my current employer for 2 years and 2 month including the days when i am still under the mission visa?

    If so how the grautuity will be calculated..

    Appreciate for your swift Response.

      To compute gratuity company should consider your joining date i.e the day your payroll commenced.
      There is nothing like transfer. To join other company you need to cancel your current visa.

      Your total gratuity would be almost 4500 Dhrs. Hence you have resigned you will be entitled for 1/3rd of the total gratuity.

      since it is a resignation you wont be entitled for any air ticket

      your total gratuity would be approximate 6,400 Dhrs. I dont think you will get a ban considering you worked for a same company long period of time. However it is depend on company.

      Your total gratuity would be almost 4000 Dhrs. In addition to your gratuity you will entitled to get whatever balanced leave amount
      Since you are terminated by company you will be entitled to get air ticket to your home country ( I am not sure whether they will pay you in cash).

    My employer interpretation of end of service severance pay is that for each year of work up to five years of work he has to pay 21 calendar days, which translates to 15 paid days.
    The way he explains is that I’m working five days of seven per week, so this apply to severance pay, five days paid for each seven days of severance. Is he correct in this interpretation. Are they any conditions which govern this labor law.

    I am 4.97 years continues of unlimited contract here in our company in ICAD1 Mussafah Abu Dhabi. My accounting Manager and me went to one of His contact member in Labour of Ministry here in same area.
    They said that my gratuity is computed as 14 days per annum for unlimited contract.

    I red in Article 137 of MOL. Its said that :
    ARTICLE (137)
    If an employee under a contract with unlimited period has left his work at his own
    option 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 end of service gratuity provided for in
    the previous Article.
    If the period of his continued service is more than 3 years and less than 5 years he
    becomes entitled to 2/3 of the said gratuity, but if his continued service exceeds 5
    years, he becomes entitled to the entire gratuity.

    Please help because I don’t know why it became 14days per annum.

      Hi Nazmi, Your gratuity would be calculated from the date of joining. But you need to check all your documents signed when they transferred your visa from one company to other company.

    Dear Sir / Madam,

    I’m facing serious issue. i had dubai visa, my company cancelled it on 10/04/2013 and provide me free zone VISA. before company stamp the free zone visa I informed them, not proceed I got new job. company told no problem we will release you but you have to pay the visa cost for free zone visa + medical insurance cost. I also agreed to pay. now they are not giving me visa cancellation paper and my passport. they have hold my last month salary also. when I asked cancellation paper and passport they are fighting with me.

    since i agrees to pay visa cost and medical insurance cost, I feel this is unfaire. in this situation what i want to do ?

    i joined the company on 06/11/2011
    i reassigned on 13/05/2013
    my last day on 13/06/2013

    im working in a LLC company for 1year and 11months (from june17 2011 to may24 2013), they decided to transfer my visa from LLC to FZE. i ask them for salary increase(3weeks before they cancelled my visa), they didnt said anything to me so i think they will give an increase. they cancelled my LLC visa and give me the new offer letter(FZE) to find out that my salary is still the same. i dont like to continue if the salary is still the same, im planning not to accept this job and find a new one under LLC. is there any ban for me even if they cancelled my visa without cancellation letter from them.

    On Feb 3 I was notifed I was to be laid off effective March 2 2013 & given written notice.
    Now it is March 10. I’ve not gotten my EOS gratuity, nor have I received my passport back. Within how many days is a company required to pay a laid-off empl. their gratuity? I do ot know if they have canceled my visa or not.

    Also, I have 5 yr, 8 mo & 23 days service. Do I get 30 days renumeration per year & fraction thereof or it is 21 days for first 5 yrs and then 30 days for 6th yr or fraction thereof?

      Hi Dennis, they have to calculate your gratuity till your last working day. Yes it would be 21 days salary for the first five year and 30 days after six year and fraction thereof. You should get the gratuity before you sign for the cancellation. Therefore, please check with your company about this issue.

    Hello Sir,
    Date joined : 4th Sep’t 1998
    Date Resigned : 8th August 2012
    Basic Salary (as per Labour Contract) : 4000
    Family Accomodation included in Labour Contract
    I have not been settled to date, they are stalling, however I made an effort to meet the new accountant & he showed me the calculation which seems OK i.e. 21 days for 5 years & rest 30 days. The only thing missing out is that they have not paid my housing rent for 6 months before i resigned (which was paid every 6 months). They are verbally refusing to pay this amount & have not included it in the calculation? Secondly my settlement has been delayed for 6 months to date, am I entitled for a compensation for this lapsed period? Thanks

      I think may be you had got some leave balances that is the reason you got 1600.

    Two quick questions when resigning after 4.5 years on a unlimited contract:
    Do they calculate the EOSB pro rata from different pay levels? I Have had three different pay grades

    My actual contract lodged with the MOL is my original one. My company has given me a new contract but not informed MOL. Do I get all the EOSB calculated on this or pro rate on what I actually received?

    Many thanks as it is confusing

    For example;

    start date: January 29, 2012
    resignation date: January 10, 2013
    she will work one month notice period and then the employee’s last working day will be in February.

    Is this employee entitled to get end of service benefit?

    Hi sir. I would like to ask how much is my gratuity if my basic salary is 1,500 and my contract is only for 2 yrs.

    I started joining the company last Feb 26, 2011 with unlimited contract and I will not be renewing my contract so I will resign on Feb. 26, 2013 as well. Will the company ask for any penalty or do I need to pay them anything even if my visa is still valid until May 2013? I just need a clear answer. I believe I have the right to resign because it is already end of service as per the new rule for 2 year contract only.

    Hello can you help. I resigned from my company on leave over 2 years ago. This was acknowledged and my accepted by my employee and accepted my resignation with immediate effect. (i have the email). I asked my visa to be cancelled but this was never done. My visa expired last month and have just come back to Dubai and was told by officals I absconded 5 days before my visa expired. My passport has been taken from me and have been told I have to visit the Department of Labour to get this resolved. I have been to Dubai a number of times since I left my job here over 20 times. Can anyone give me some advise. I need to pass through Dubai because of my current job and being blacklisted is a big problem for me

      How wrong this person is !!!

      if you resign : ( and you were working for less than 1 year )

      You are not entitled for Gratuity

      If you resign: ( and you were working between from 1 to 3 years

      You are entitled for 1/3 from your gratuity which is calculated on the basis of 21 days every years.

      If you resign and you are working between 3 to 5 years in the company:

      you are entitled for 2/3 of your total gratuity calculated on the of 21 days per year.

      If you resign and you are working for more than 5 years

      than you entitled for 21 days for the first five years ( a total of 105 days) and 30 days for every extra years,

      nevertheless you have to serve a one month notice( depending on your labour contract) whenever you resign.

      if you are terminated : you are entitled to get paid 21 days for the first five years of service , and 30 days for every extra years. ( note that you should serve more than 6 months ).

      Moreover you should also serve a one month notice.

        I’m on company visa for the last 2 years only. What joining date should be taken for EOSB calculation? The date i joined ( 4 years ago), or the date when Company made me visa? Important concern for those who work on husband/family visas. Many thanks.

      You will not be able to receive gratuity amount since you have not completed one year. You will have ban unless company provides you NOC. But you can try in Freezone.

      If company is terminating you the gratuity amount should come 21 days for each year of service. you can go to labour in this case. In this case the gratuity will come around approximate 3200 AED. If company gives you NOC then there will be no ban. This is my opinion. Please consult your HR.

      if you completed his probational period and then company has to compensate with notice period salary.

    My employer is explaining to me that he will pay me 15 days for each year of service based on one year paid days (that is excluding Friday and Saturday, as he interpretation of the rules is that those days I was absent and not paid) I had not take any unpaid days from work beside paid vacation leave, stat holidays and week-ends. Is Employers interpretation of the law correct?

    Hi deepak,
    I’ll be with my company in sept. 5th for 3 yrs. i am planning to tender my resignation sometime this month.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 will resign days 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.

    can i tell them about this article 132….. does all the company here in UAE follows this law?

    I finished my first conntract ( 3 year ) and renewed my visa which is for 2 year. It’s limited contract and visa is by dubai. I resigned from my
    contract ( i finished 11 month for the second contract ). I was receiving 1400 basic and 300 food allowance. But my basic was started with 900 dhr for first 6 months then 1000 dhr. later year by year
    I got increase. So for about 5 months I receive 1400 basic. Now what my company said I have 117 days vacation salary ( I didnt take vacation ) which is 4433.33 dh. Is it correct.Then I dont have gratuity at all.Then company will deduct 2500 dh from me.No air ticket. Then 1 year ban. Are all those what my company told me correct ?I signed already those papers. Is there any scope for me?
    Thanks alot for your help.

      if it is limited contract you need to finish the contract then only you will be entitled for gratuity. I have no idea why are they deducting 2500/-?
      If there is ban you need to finish the ban period to get the another job.

But a couple of weeks ago I received an increase in both my basic and my allowance which is now 8250 and 3000 respectively. But it will be effective on August 1. Then I received job offer from another company and have now resigned last 20 July and last day is 20 August. How much will be the gratuity? Which rate will be considered in the computation, the old or new one?

    How much will my gratuity be? When should it be paid? My company is saying it can take up to 3 months.

    I am also owed AED 8,000.00 in commission which I am told is only due when the client pays.

    Thanks again

      You are not entitled for any gratuity as it is less than a year. The rules with regard to commissions are internal to company.

      Hi Rao,

      Gratuity would be 15213
      45 days leave amt would be 11835.62
      you will not be entitled to air ticket since it is a resignation.

    HI I have resign from my company. I was working as outsourced employ from May 1 2007 then in 2008 dec my employed switched my job to another company with new 3 years contact. In this new contract they mention “End of service benifit allownce” along with other allownces. Now they are not giving me gratuity for these years as they said its already given. If i calculate according to contact it will be 15000DH for 3 years and as per the labour law for 21 days it goes upto 100 thousand DH.I am surprize to see that what they have done with me. Any solution for this or any idea to recover something from them.

      while switching the job if employer paid you EOS benefits then you will not receive the same but if they have not paid you ..you have the right to ask the EOS..but please check exactly what it is written on your contract when they switched the employment agreement to outsource company. It is all depends on mentioned contract.

        My mention contract state my basic salaries other house and travel allowances and at the last end it mention end of service allowance. This is what they said its already included in your package in our contract (between them and me) so you are not entitled the EOSB. But when I signed I was not aware of this and they put this clause now I come to know about EOSB. What I can do in this case as my EOSB is just peanuts if I take according to labour law.

    I will be completing 1 yr of service on the 1st of September, 2012 and will be putting down my resignation on the 5th of September, 2012 and serving a 1 months notice period from then. Would I still be entitled to my annual leave (reimbursement) and an annual ticket? My offer letter states that I get paid annual leave and an annual ticket to my home country after completion of every 12 months of service. How about gratuity? Am I entitled to that as well?

    Sir,
    I have resigned from my job, after 14 years. And now I guess my company is going to calculate my gratuity according to my prevous salary. For example On 1998 it was only 800dhs my basic salary, upto 6 to 7 years then it been increased to 3000, then 5000, now I earn 7000 per month. And my company as many years I work for 800dhs, Is my gratuity calculated according to 800dhs OR according to the present salary which I get now is 7000 basic salary

    I’m not sure what your telling people is very correct, its correct in case of termination but not for resignation, the following Article 137 of Law 8 states the condition when a person resigns.

    Article 132
    A worker who has completed one or more years of continuous service shall be entitled to severance pay at the end of his employment. The days of absence from work without pay shall not be included in calculating the period of service. The severance pay shall be calculated as follows:
    1) 21 days’ wage for each of the first five years of service.
    2) 30 days’ wage for each additional year of service provided always that the aggregate amount of severance pay should not exceed two year’s wage.
    Article 137
    Where a worker under an indefinite term contract abandons his work at his own Initiative(meaning resigns) 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 (7 days for 1-3 yrs) provided for in the preceding article. Such a worker shall be entitled to two thirds of the said severance pay (14 days) if his continuous service exceeds three years up to five years, and to the full severance pay (21 days) if it exceeds five years.

    Hi, just would like to know, if the company has given me 3 warnings and fired me after that am i still entitled for all the gratuities i should be getting as per the Law? I have completed 1 year and 3 months with the company, my contract is unlimited. I have not done any severe violations however the warnings have been given me based on a poor peformance. And i have signed them all. I still have my annual vacation leave of 23 days not used and accordning to the contract the company should pay me the ticket as well. In case of being fired, i believe the company still has to pay me 21 days per the completed year + vacation leave + ticket + notice period (as per the contract it is 30 days). Am i correct in my calculations?

    Thanks a lot,

However, after coming back from vacation my visa was changed from Mission Visa to Employment/Resident Visa with my contract as well been change from Limited Contract to Unlimited Contract.

    Here is my question:

    1. Assuming I would stay 2 more years from the company, how shall be my gratuity computed considering the changes of my contract from limited terms to unlimited terms.
    2. Any similarity on the way limited terms contract and unlimited terms contract being computed for gratuity?

      Your situation is a bit complicated. I am not sure how your company will interpret the rules. But gratuity will be calculated after the UAE residence visa and not for Mission visa. I might be wrong. Please consult a lawyer or seek advice from Ministry of Labour.

I fe1l and broke my right elbow and arm 2 mos ago and have been off work. My company paid my hospital bill but has not paid me anything since. They said to let them know when I was ready to go back to work which I did 2 weeks ago when I got my full arm cast off. I have heard nothing back from them. Since I have had not income from them I assume they have let me go but have received nothing official. I am in severe financial straights because of no income. I want to know what end of service benefits or anything else I am entitled to so I can go back to them or what my options are. I now have another job opportunity outside of UAE I woiuld like to take but cannot until I clear my financial obligations.

      If the accident occurred during the working hours the company is responsible for all the damages plus full paid salary. In this case if you want to resign you are entitled for EOS benefits. That said if the accident has occurred due to the negligence of the employee, then no compensation will be paid by company.

      There is no rule that you can take local leaves but not international. I believe you company wants to make sure that you are in the country so that they do not get stuck on cancellation of visa. Because if you do not return and the visa is not cancelled, then the company may be in trouble getting hold of you. And also, if your visa is not cancelled, the visa quota will be affected.

    I have been working in a transport company for 9years and i am planing to resign, I have been told by my cooworkers who previously resigned that the company deducted from their end of service sick leave and unpaid leave and visa expences … is it possible??? is it by UAE Labour Law or vary from company to company.

      May 02. 2012

      I don’t think that they can deduct visa expenses from the EOSB. I am not aware about your policies with regard to sick leave and unpaid leave. Labour laws are constant across all companies.
      As per UAE Labour Law employee is entitled to sick leave:

      Full wage for the first 15 days.
      Half wage for the next 30 days.
      Any following period will be without wage.
      However, if the employee’s illness is directly caused by his misconduct, he is not entitled to any wage during the sick leave.

      and also note that unpaid leave days shall be deducted while calculating the gratuity.

      It is the main responsibility of the company to provide working visa to the employees and shall not be deducted from the end of service benefit. But if in any case it is written in your employment contract that visa expenses shall be borne by the employee then the company has the right to deduct the visa expenses.

    I have been working in a (Garments) tailoring company for the last 6 years& 6 Months, my company always transfered 800 AED per month to my account.while i was paid with commission on each piece of garment i prepared. means my total monthly income was exceeding 2000 and sometimes 2500, Now that i am resigning in this case how much EOSB i am entitled for. My company has to pay based on 800 AED or 2000 AED.

    Thanks and Regards,

      Hi Ali, I believe the EOSB will be calculated on 800 and not on 2000. What is mentioned in your contract as salary? IF it is 800, then EOSB will be calculated on 800.

    Hi everyone, please keep in mind the below situations when calculating the of gratuity.

    An employee employed under a contract for an unlimited period who resigns after a continuous service of not less than one year and not more than three years is entitled to one third of the end of service gratuity (i.e. 1/3 of 21 days not whole of 21 days). If the period of continuous service is more than three years and less than five years he is entitled to two thirds of the gratuity (i.e. 2/3 of the 21 days). If his continuous service is more than five years, he is entitled to the full gratuity.

    If an employee who is employed under a contract for a limited period on the other hand chooses to resign before the end of the contract, he is not entitled to end of service gratuity unless his continuous service exceeds five years.

    I hope the above helps and clarify. Thanks.

      First of all, email resignations are not valid. You have to handover the letter in person with your signature. I advise you to settle the matter amicably so as not to get in the absconding list. If you have not cancelled your visa, the company or sponsor has all the rights to report you as abscond. Be careful.

          Article 121 indicates that :
          A- If the employer fails to honour his obligations towards the worker, as provided for in the contract or in this Law.
          B- If he is assaulted by the employer or the employer’s legal representative.

      @bhim
      Here is overtime calculation as per UAE Labour Law 
      According to the Article 67 Where the work circumstances require a worker to work more than the normal number of hours,any period worked in excess shall be treated as overtime for which the worker shall receive the wage stipulated for his normal working hours plus a supplement of at lest 25 per cent of that wage.
       According to the Article 70 , where a worker has to be put on duty on Friday, he shall be compensated with substitute rest day or be paid his basic wage for his normal hours of work plus a supplement of at least 50 per cent of that wage.
        The approximate gratuity without OT you will receive is 13K

      @AntonzVillareal
      As per the UAE Federal Government Labour Law, the Artcle 132 stipulates that if a worker who has completed more than one year of continuous employment in a company, then he is entitled for 21 calendar days’ remuneration(End Of Service Benefits or Gratuity) for every year that he has worked. 
      If you are resigned of your own you will be entitled to 1/3 rd Gratuity.
      If you are terminated you will be entitled to 21 days remuneration for every year that you worked.
      The leaves which you had taken during your contract period if it is unpaid the days will not be taken into consideration while calculation the gratuity.

      Dear Deepak,
      I’ve been working for a company for 3 years and 7mos now. Some of the higher management has something against me despite of me being a well performer. They gave me final written warning on 2nd Jan 12 for not reporting to work on 31st dec 11, whereas a proper dental sick leave was provided for that day, they reckoned we called the dentist and he claimed it wasn’t an emergency it was just optional. According to Disipilinary Table in my company states “Abuse of sick leave, First warning and then final”. My question is, can they override their own disciplinary table and issue anything they like? Secondly, is there a way I can file a case on this matter or for mentally torturing me at work with these inappropriate and invalid reasons. What’s the criteria to contact lawyers?
      Thanks..

        If you have already got 2 warnings, then final warning will be for termination. IF you have a clear cut case of abuse, please contact Ministry of Labour on their call centre number first and report the incident. The case can be filed at the Ministry of Labour through their lawyers or you can visit a competent lawyer firm in UAE. I advise you to keep a record of incidents date by date if you have to report. However, I suggest you try to amicably settle the issue with your company inorder not to lose your job; there are not many in the market.

    My manager terminated me because me and him are fighting..I complaint in the labor that he want to fire me because of i’m arguing to him and he said that i just leave my work just like that.the labor said to him let me comeback to my work but he refuse and he said that he want me to terminate. I agree that he will terminate me but until now i did’nt sign any termination paper it will be on wednesday. I was 3 year and 3 months to my company so how it will be calculated? And i was limited contract? What is the right graduity i should get it base on the labour law?

      As per the Labour law, you are entitled for gratuity as per usual calculations. In most cases it will be 21 days basic salary for the number of years you have worked for. Hence you are entitled for a 4.5 years amount of end of service gratuity. However, you are required to consult a lawyer or your HR for further questions.

    If your labour contracts mention this, then it is as per the Ministry of Labour and is true. Gross Negligence is a broad term and the interpretation could b drawn when a company faces losses in money, personnel or any other assets due to your negligence or poor decision making, then you are liable for the actions as a manager or performer of the event. For example, The recent deaths of the workers due to scaffolding accident was attributed to the gross negligence of the supervisors. Hence, the supervisor may be terminated, held responsible for the loss.
