DUBAI: UAE Government and private sector employers that fail to register Emiratis for retirement benefits will be penalised, according to the General Pension and Social Security Authority.

"Any delay in the payment of these contributions will result in fines or penalties imposed on the employer only as the insured does not bear any financial obligation in this case."
