How to enroll in Unemployment Insurance for workers in UAE’s freezones.
If you are employed in a freezone or semi-governmental organization in the UAE, you are now eligible to apply for the Unemployment Insurance Scheme, also known as Involuntary Loss of Employment (ILOE).
Although the scheme was initially only available to Emiratis and expatriates working full-time in federal and private sectors, Dubai Insurance, the company responsible for managing the ILOE Insurance Pool, announced on May 3rd through their official social media accounts that freezone employees and those working for semi-government entities are now eligible to apply for the scheme as well.
The Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation (MOHRE) stated certain eligibility conditions for workers to receive cash compensation under the ILOE scheme during its initial announcement. The Unemployment Insurance Scheme (ILOE) allows eligible workers to receive a salary equal to 60 per cent of their basic salary for up to three months in case of job loss.
