UAE to set up overseas labour processing units

January 23, 2008 11:40 IST
The United Arab Emirates will establish overseas labour processing centres in major labour-sending countries this year to curb recruitment-related malpractices.

The centres would be set up as a result of the memoranda of understanding signed by the UAE earlier with several labour-sending countries, Dr Ali Bin Abdullah Al Ka'abi, minister of labour,
said.

The units are expected to curb the exploitation of workers by unscrupulous agents.

Workers will benefit from orientation sessions provided to help build local knowledge before they reach the destination country.

Labour contracts will also be explained to them and they will be provided with ministry-approved literature in local languages.
