What is Wage Protection System(WPS), UAE
Wages Protection System (WPS) is an electronic salary transfer system that allows institutions to pay workers' wages via banks, bureaux de change, and financial institutions approved and authorized to provide the service.
The system, developed by the Central Bank of the UAE, allows the Ministry of Labour to create a database that records wage payments in the private sector to guarantee the timely and full payment of agreed-upon wages.
The WPS covers all institutions registered with the Ministry across all sectors and industries and will benefit different categories of labour.
The WPS reflects the UAE's leading position in the region, and will increasingly project the country as a model worth emulating in the following areas:
- Reiterating commitment to protect workers' wages;
- Providing innovative solutions that help employers safeguard their own interests and reduce the time and effort needed to pay workers' wages;
- Taking serious steps to improve job security in order to strengthen work relationships in the UAE and safeguard the rights of all parties concerned;
- Entrenching transparency and competitiveness;
- Ensuring that the UAE Ministry of Labour is regularly and constantly updated on wages data in the private sector in order to guarantee that employers fulfill their salary obligations;
- Taking protective and proactive measures to reduce labour disputes pertaining to wages.
Consequences of failing to join WPS
- Institutions failing to transfer workers' wages will be denied the right to have new work permits. This ban will only be lifted in the month following the transfer of workers' wages in full.
- Institutions that delay wages' payment more than one month of the due date will be denied the right to have new work permits, along with all institutions owned by the owner of the violating institution, and to refer all those responsible for the violation to the court, in accordance with Ministerial Resolution No. 788 of 2009.
