Nepal, UAE sign labour agreement

Nepal and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) today signed labour agreement. Labour Minister Gokarna Bista and Human Resource Minister of UAE Nasser Thani Al Hamli signed the agreement – during the centenary celebration of the International Labor Organisation (ILO) being held in Geneva in Switzerland – on behalf of their respective governments.
According to the new deal, the employers will have to bear all the expenses for selection and recruitment of workers as per the agreement. “The workers can look for alternative jobs, if they become unemployed due to weaknesses on the part of employers,” it reads, adding that there will be no discrimination against workers on wage, overtime, work environment and access to justice, apart from equal treatment for migrant workers coming from all the countries. “Workers will be able to keep all the documents of individual identity including passports.”
The UAE is the fourth preferred destination for Nepali workers. The two countries have felt the need to revise the agreement according to the changed context.
