Salary payment proof
Q: I am the owner of a company in Dubai. Last week, one of my employees filed a complaint against me with the Ministry of Labour claiming that he did not receive his salary for three months. I paid him the claimed three months’ salary, but I did so in cash. I lost the paper he signed saying that he received the salary . How can I prove to the labour ministry or the Dubai court that I paid him his 3 months’ salary?
A: Payment of the employee’s salary may be proved before the court in the following three ways:
1. Declaration by the employee that he received his salary.
2. Evidence from the employer that the employee has received his salary, such as bank statement or salary disbursement proof from money exchange.
3. Testimony from the employee under oath in the labour court. If he does so, a judgment will be passed in his favour.
