Wage Protection Systems and Programmes in the GCC

Publisher: Gulf Research Center
Date of Publication: Nov 2017
Publications Categories: Research Papers & Analysis


This paper is an assessment of the limitations of the electronic Wage Protection System (WPS) introduced in four of the six Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) states. The widespread practice of withholding wages has led to the GCC states introducing a wage protection system where employers are required to make the payments to employees into their bank accounts to ensure an official record of payments that can be monitored.
