"Report salary delay sooner, Indians in UAE told", 9 May 2019
Indian Embassy has asked expatriates to report incidents of non-payment of salaries without delay. The more the delay in reporting non-payment of wages, the more complications in solving them, the embassy in Abu Dhabi said... [they] have been raising awareness about the need for early reporting of non-payment of wages through various community groups and associations... "The UAE side has also emphasised that such matters be brought to their attention at the earliest. When the cases are reported very late... Indian and the UAE authorities find it challenging to resolve them swiftly" [said Indian Ambassador Navdeep Singh Suri]. If such payment delays are reported on time, authorities will be in a better position to take up the issue with the company, arrange supply of provisions to the unpaid workers and even help with reconnection of power and water supplies, Suri explained.
