Recently, with the announcement of Sheikh Mohammed of the new Government plan which included the need to focus on Emiratisation there have been a number of statements made on this issue. Speaking at a meeting to implement the plan, the Deputy Prime Minister, stated that some institutions have been ‘manipulating’ Emiratisation figures and jeopardising the country’s stability in the process. He has added a new way of thinking and a new vision is needed in this area. There will also be greater scrutiny of institutions who are manipulating Emiratisation figures. In addition, the Ruler of Sharjah has announced a new Emiratisation Department will be set up in that Emirate which will be responsible for the hiring of Emiratis in the private sector. In addition, private sector employers with Emirati employees will have to deposit their salaries with the Government who will then pass the money on to Emirati employees after having made sure those salaries match equivalents in the public sector.
