UAE Encourages Online Salary Payments for Domestic Workers
Employers are required to enroll domestic workers in the Wage Protection System to electronically pay their wages by the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratization in the United Arab Emirates.
MoHRE in partnership with the UAE Central Bank offers all employers the option to pay salaries online to domestic workers via exchange banks, banks, or other financial institutions associated with the Central Bank.
Abdullah Al Nuaimi (Assistant Under-Secretary to Domestic Workers at MoHRE) stated that WPS will help employers keep track of wages and protect the payment process.

Al Nuaimi also stressed the importance of WPS transparency by protecting the employer and worker’s contractual relationships. Al Nuaimi also noted that WPS would allow the MoHRE access to wage data, which will help reduce labor-related disputes in the future.
The service will become effective on April 1, 2023. It will apply to five out of the 19 professions of domestic workers as defined by Ministry. WPS must credit domestic workers enrolled as personal trainers or assistants, housekeepers, and private agricultural engineers.

Also, a domestic worker in the Emirates can only be recruited after procuring a license from the MoHRE.
