There is no gratuity for a worker or an employee if he/she leaves the job before one year. Employees who have worked 1-5 years of work will get 21 days of salary per year. For this, a person should divide his most recent salary on 30 to find one day salary.

If a person’s salary is 3000 AED,

then 3000 รท 30 = 300

So, his one day salary will be 300 AED. Now you have to multiply it with the total days as per the number of years. Each year will add 21 days to gratuity if a worker has worked one to five years(1-5). Employees who have worked for five years or more than five years, will get 30 days of gratuity as per each year.


If you have not completed one year service, you cannot get gratuity in unlimited contracts also. The formula for unlimited contract is slightly different. If a person have worked between 1-3 years, he or she will get 1/3 of the 21 days gratuity pay. The rule for 3-5 years service in unlimited contracts is 2/3 of 21 days gratuity pay. Person with more than five years experience will get full 21 days gratuity pay.
