One of the most important topics under UAE Labour Law is Gratuity Calculation or End of Service Benefits/Remuneration – EOSB. While End of Service Benefits is a broader term, in this article I will use Gratuity as a term which entitles every employee with a rightful amount at the end of their employment with a company. When you resign or are terminated, you are eligible for Gratuity as per UAE Labour Law. This guide will provide you step by step guidance to calculate gratuity in case of:

  • Resignation;
    • Unlimited Contract.
    • Limited Contract.
  • Termination;
    • Unlimited Contract
    • Limited Contract.

Further there are many situations under this that are possible like term of employment. At the end of this short tutorial, you will learn how to calculate gratuity under various circumstances.

You can learn more about Unlimited Contract or Limited Contract.

Basis of Gratuity Calculation

Gratuity is calculated based on the latest drawn Basic Wage. UAE labour Law also lists basic rule for Gratuity Calculation. As per the Article 132 of UAE Labour Law, it is mentioned that:

The employee who has completed one year or more in the continuous service, is entitled to the end of service remuneration at the end of his service. Days of absence from work without pay are not included in computing the period of service, and the remuneration is to be calculated as follows:

1. Gratuity Calculation – Unlimited Contract

1.1 Resignation with Less than a year of Service

Gratuity is applicable only when an employee completes One Year of continuous service with a company. This is mentioned in the Section 2 – End of Service Remuneration of the UAE Labour Law Article 132.

gratuity-calculation-basic-salary

1.2 Resignation with service of more than 1 year but less than 3 years

If an employee on Unlimited contract who has resigned with a service of more than 1 year and less than 3 years, he/she is eligible for 1/3rd of 21 day’s basic salary for every year of service.

Illustration of the above:

  • Basic salary = AED 10,000 per month
  • Joining date = 01-01-2010
  • End date = 31-03-2011
  • Total number of days worked = 455 days
  • Total number of years worked = 1.25 years
  • 21 days’ Basic salary = AED 6904.1
  • Wages per day = AED 10,000*12/365= 328.76
  • Amount of wages for number of years: 21*328.76*1.25 = 8,606.49
  • Gratuity Amount: 1/3*8606.49 = 2,868.83

1.3 Resignation with service of more than 3 years but less than 5 years

If an employee under unlimited contract has resigned with a total service of more than 3 years and less than 5 years, he/she will be eligible for a gratuity amount of 2/3rd of the 21 day’s basic salary for every year worked.

Illustration of the above scenario:

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

1.4 Resignation with service of more than 5 years

If an employee under unlimited contract has resigned with a total service of more than 5 years, for the first 5 years he/she is eligible for 21 day’s basic salary for every year worked and 30 day’s basic salary for every number years worked after that.

Illustration:

    • Basic salary = AED 10,000 per month
    • Joining date = 01-01-2005
    • End date = 31-03-2011
    • Total number  of days worked (31-03-2011-01-01-2005+1)= 2281 days
    • Total number of years he worked=1916/365= 6.25
    • 21 days’ Basic salary = 328.76*21= AED 6,904.1
    • 30 days’ basic salary=328.76*30= AED 9,863.01
    • Wages per day = AED 10,000*12/365= 328.76
    • Total gratuity=21*328.76*5=34,520.55+(2,218/365-5)*30*328.76=2,459.00=46,842

Other benefits in case of termination:

  • Payments equivalent to accrued but un-utilised leave or any part thereof;
  • Payments for overtime or any wage due and not yet paid;
  • A notice period or payment due in lieu of the notice period which is mentioned in the employment agreement;
  • Repatriation expenses to the employee’s country of domicile as per the Labour Law or as stipulated in the employment agreement;
  • The compensation for unreasonable dismissal if the contract was terminated by the employer for unreasonable cause (generally to a maximum of three months).

Please also note that company has rights to deduct any advances, loans you have taken from the final gratuity amount.

2. Gratuity Calculation – Limited Contract

Under limited contract, if you have terminated the contract, meaning if you as employee resign within 5 years of service, you will not be eligible for gratuity. If you have a limited contract, Gratuity is slightly different in the labor law. The factor of 1/3rd or 2/3rd does not apply under limited contract. Everything else remains the same. Below I will try and explain it in various scenarios:

2.1 Resignation without completing your Limited Contract

If you have not completed your Limited Contract as mentioned in your Contract, you will not be eligible for Gratuity under Limited Contract. Meaning, if your limited contract is for a period of 2 years, and you have resigned from your job at 1 year and 2 months, you will not be eligible for any Gratuity. This is mentioned clearly in the UAE Labour Law Article 138. The only exception to this rule is that you resign under limited contract after completing 5 years of continuous service.

2.2 Resignation after completing your Limited Contract with service of 1 to 5 years

If you have completed your limited contract and it is within 1 to 5 years, you are eligible for 21 day’s basic salary for each year of service.

Illustration:

  • Joining date: 1-1-2008
  • End date: 30-12-2012
  • Basic Salary: 5,000/- per month
  • Basic Salary per day = Basic Salary X 12/365=164.38
  • Total no of days worked=Joining Date-End Date=1826
  • Total no of years worked=Total no of days worked/365=5 years
  • 21 days’ Basic Salary=Basic Salary per day X 21 days=3452.05
  • Gratuity Amount=Total no of years worked*21 days’ Basic Salary=17,269.73

2.3 Resignation with service of more than 5 years of service

If you have completed more than 5 years of continuous service with your company and have resigned, then for the first 5 years you are eligible for 21 day’s basic salary and for service above 5 years, you are eligible for 30 day’s basic salary for every year of service.

Illustration:

  • Joining date: 1-1-2008
  • End date: 31-12-2013
  • Basic Salary: 5,000/- per month
  • Basic Salary per day =Basic Salary X 12/365=164.38
  • Total no of days worked=Joining Date-End Date=2192
  • Total no of years worked=Total no of days worked/365=6.01
  • 21 days’ Basic Salary=Basic Salary per day X 21 days=3452.05
  • 30 days’ Basic Salary=Basic Salary per day X 30 days(for above 5 years)=4931.4
  • Gratuity Amount=5*21 days’ Basic Salary + 1*30 days basic salary = 22,191.00

2.4 Termination with service of less than 1 year

If your length of service is less than 1 year and you have been terminated, then you are not eligible for any gratuity. However, you may be eligible for other benefits under limited contract.

2.5 Termination with service of more than 1 year

In case you are terminated from your services on Limited Contract with a service of more than 1 year up to 3 years, you are eligible for gratuity of 30 days for every year of service.

Illustration:

  • Joining date 1-1-2010
  • End date 31-03-2012
  • Basic Salary 5,000/- per month
  • Basic Salary per day =Basic Salary X 12/365=164.38
  • Total no of days worked=Joining Date-End Date=821
  • Total no of years worked=Total no of days worked/365=2.25
  • 30 21 days’ Basic Salary=Basic Salary per day X 30 21 days=3451.98
  • Gratuity Amount=Total no of years worked*30 21 days’ Basic Salary=7766.95

(There were errors in the calculation and have been corrected after feedback from readers. Thank you!)

What is the maximum Gratuity that you can get?

Under Article 132 of Labor Law, you can clearly read that the maximum gratuity amount can not exceed 2 years’ gross salary.

maximum gratuity amount uae

Do I get 3 month salary in case of termination?

Under Limited Contract, if you are terminated for any reason other than mentioned in Article 120, you are eligible for 3 month’s compensation or remuneration till the end of your remaining contract, whichever is shorter. This is covered in the Article 115 of the UAE Labour Law.

When is gratuity not applicable?

Gratuity is not applicable in the following scenarios: (covered under Article 139)

when can employee not receive gratuity eosb

  1. If you are terminated or dismissed as per the provisions of Article 120 of UAE labour Law;
  2. If you leave work without serving notice period other than for factors under Article 121 under unlimited contract;
  3. If you leave or resign from limited contract before completion of 5 years.

Article 120 of UAE Labour Law

Read post on Article 120 – Termination Reasons

article 120 of uae labour law when can employer terminate employee

Article 121 of UAE Labour Law

Read Article on When you can Terminate Labour Contract as Employee

article 121 of uae labour law when can employee terminate labour contract

What should you do if your employer does not settle your lawful gratuity?

If you do not receive your gratuity or end of service remuneration, you could visit MOL or log on to their online portal to file a complaint of non-receipt of your gratuity.

As emphasised earlier, it makes all the sense for you to calculate and be satisfied with your gratuity calculation in case you are terminated or if you have resigned from your job. Many employers do take advantage of  their employees by falsifying the gratuity report.

  • I am working now in more than 5 year limited visa with 1,200 basic what do you think i can get gratuity in my company. and their not giving air ticket but as per in my contract first party will give ticket. but they dont want to give.

    • Dear,
      If you finished 5 years complete, you can get 21 days (from your basic salary) for each year (Eg:- 21* 5 years = 105 Days).
      1200 *12 / 365 = 4,142/- Dhs
      You can complaint against that company for air ticket
      No need to worry for anything (In UAE Labour Court) everything is easy.

  • Dear Deepak,

    I have got a termination letter from my company, my contract is a limited contract and have 9 mnths in my company,

    I have been given one month notice mentioning as ”
    my performance level is low and is not to the company’s expected level”,

    Kindly help, im scared that my company will drag me in settlement and visa cancellation if i complaint in MOL,

    Kindly guide me

    • Dont be scared . Go to MOL and ask advise. In fact you are eligible for the following :

      What is the employee entitled to on the termination of his employment contract?

      On the termination of the employment contract, an employee is entitled to the following:

      A notice period, or any amount due in lieu of the notice period in the case of an unlimited contract.
      In the case of an unlimited contract, compensation for unreasonable dismissal if the contract was terminated by the employer for unreasonable cause.
      In the case of a limited contract, compensation equivalent to the period until the end of the contract, or three month’s wages, whichever is shorter.
      Payments equivalent to the balance of unutilised leave or any part thereof.
      Payments for overtime or any balance of wages due and not yet paid.
      End of service gratuity calculated on the duration of the employment.
      Repatriation expenses as per the Law or the employment contact, subject to the employee not being in violation or in breach of either the Law or the employment contract.

  • Hi Deepak,

    One question please: Are there 10 or 11 days of national holidays in UAE?

    I found these in the labor law:

    Article 74 –
    The worker shall be entitled to an official leave with full payment in the following occasions :
    a – New Year’s Day ( Hejir ) – One day .
    b – New Year’s Day ( Gregorian ) – One day .
    c – Eid al Fitr – Two days .
    d – Eid al Adha and Arafat Day – Three days .
    e – Prophet Mohammed Birthday Anniversary – One day .
    f – Isra and Mi’raj – One day .
    g – National Day – One day .

    These are 10 days but everybody is telling me that there is on more day for martyrs that fell lately. Is that correct?

    Thank you and best regards.

    Emporio.

  • Hi,

    I’ve been employed in my freezone company under a limited contract for 1 year and 2 months now (my contract is for 3 years). I am thinking of resigning but I’m still confused as to what the consequences are. I have read that if I, the employee, terminate the contract I would be liable to pay half of 3 month’s salary. But previously there’s a case in our company that one of the employees resigned but he did not pay the employer, instead he is given compensation equivalent to his unused leave credits.
    I’ve been looking for specific cases online regarding terminating a limited contract under a freezone company but is unable to find one.
    Could you please help me out in clarifying this case of mine? Thanks in advance.
