New online attestation launched to safeguard rights of Indian workers in UAE

Abu Dhabi, Thu, 05 Apr 2012 ANI

Abu Dhabi, Apr 5 (ANI): The employment contracts of Indian workers in the United Arab Emirates will now be attested online, in order to make the process transparent and safeguard workers' rights.

The country's Labour Minister, Saqr Gobash Saeed Gobash, said the move will allow workers to review the terms of the contract and approve them before leaving India for the UAE.

"The online validation of the contract will be mandatory for any employer in the UAE," Gulf News quoted Gobash, as saying.

Presently, job contracts of Indian workers with an Emigration Clearance Required (ECR) stamp have to be attested by the Indian Protector of Emigrants and the Indian Embassy.

The ECR stamp is required for those who have not completed their matriculation.

Agents took advantage of the old system to make separate, fake contracts.

But the new system is activated by an online application by a UAE employer and requires disclosure of the key terms of the offer.

According to the report, the new system, launched in the presence of Vayalar Ravi, Minister of Overseas Indian Affairs, is expected to be fully operational in weeks. (ANI)
