UNEMPLOYMENT PAY TO BOOST MENA STARTUPS, PROTECT ‘MOS T VULNERABLE’ WORKERS: EXP

UAE’s newly announced unemployment scheme will benefit the startup ecosystem by widening the country’s existing talent pool, stakeholders told Arabian Business.Although many startup employees are still working remotely, blue-collars workers in the ecosystem will have “breathing room” to remain in the UAE while looking for another job, explained Sallyann Della Casa, founder of Gleac.com.“Most tech startups in the region and globally are still operating on a remote work talent model. Our workforces are sitting everywhere and as such the Unemployment Initiative has little impact on our population. I am also not sure if this law by itself attracts that “remote ” startup workforce to the region or widens our white-collar pool of talent,” said Della Casa.“I think the true net beneficiary of this law are the most vulnerable levels of the workforce from developing countries already here in more blue-collar roles within startups. Take for example the drivers of Deliveroo or Talabat. They would benefit immensely from this law. It will give them the breathing room to stay in the region to bridge to their next job. It’s a basic humanitarian move and a good for business,” she continued. (ICE DUBAI)
