Beginning July 1, the UAE authorities will evaluate if private sector entities have fulfilled their Emiratisation goals for the initial six months of 2024. Businesses with 50 or more staff members who have not increased their Emirati workforce by an additional 1 percent over the past half-year will face penalties. The Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation (MoHRE) has set June 30 as the ultimate cutoff for achieving H1 targets. For this year, a penalty of Dh8,000 per month applies for every Emirati position left unfilled. Private enterprises in the nation are mandated to boost their Emirati staff by 2 percent annually. As of the end of last year, companies were expected to employ 4 percent Emiratis. By the end of June, this figure should rise to 5 percent. By the close of 2024, a company's staff should comprise 6 percent UAE nationals.
