Domestic Worker bundles enter a preoperational phase as Tad-beer Customer Service Centre finalises functionality plans to start by the fourth quarter of 2017, the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation announced.
H.E Saqr Ghobash, Minister of Human Resources and Emiratisation, said, “Customers select preferred domestic workers from a list of 19 different categories. Tad-beer centres shall act as a mediator and offer the highest level of contracting transparency.”
Ghobash made the announcement during a meeting, held at the ministry in Dubai with Tad-beer centre investors, who received initial approval to operate 40 centres across the country. The meeting was attended by Saif Al Suwaidi, Undersecretary of Human Resources, Humaid bin Deemas, Assistant Undersecretary of Labour Affairs, Aysha Belharfia, Assistant Undersecretary of Domestic Workers Affairs.
Operating under a public-private partnership plan, the ministry assures the new line of centres complete support, bringing functionality and service levels to match the preceding successor, Tas-heel centres, fulfilling, therefore, the UAE Government Excellence Program.
The Minister pointed out that the Ministry is currently working with oversea counterparts to reach agreements concerning recruitment processes. “The ministry has gone a long way in developing initiatives and policies that will have a positive impact within the proposed bundle,” he added.
Tad-beer Centres will help guarantee the provision of high-quality visa, include conducting pre-arrival interviews with domestic workers to ensure they understand their contractual rights, the provision of training and education to new workers, resolving disputes between workers and employees, and checking on worker housing and accommodation.
