UAE to give domestic workers weekly day off, annual paid leave

by

Filipino domestic helpers in the UAE could soon be entitled to receive weekly day-off as the Federal National Council (FNC) approved a draft federal law on domestic workers.

The FNC said the draft law seeks to establish relationships between employers, domestic workers and recruitment offices, WAM reported Wednesday.

The draft law will mandate 30 days of annual paid leave, the right to retain personal documents such as passport, daily rest of at least 12 hours, including eight consecutive hours.

The proposed legislation shall also protect domestic helpers against physical or verbal sexual abuse, human trafficking and forced labor.

The proposed legislation follows concerns raised by some foreign diplomats.

The approval came during its 17th session of the second ordinary session of the 16th legislative chapter at its headquarters in Abu Dhabi, chaired by Dr. Amal Abdullah Al Qubaisi, Speaker of FNC.
