    The Gulf Cooperation’s Council (GCC) is a political and economic union of Arab states bordering the Arabian gulf. It was established in 1981 and its 6 members are the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Oman, Kuwait and Bahrain.

    Sick leave is permitted absence from work because of illness and its different from paid vacation leave, since sickness deals with health matters. Each GCC country has domestic sick leave and sickness benefits based on the relevant articles mentioned in the labour law.

    In some GCC countries, an employee is not entitled for sick leave during his/ her probationary period. To understand the sick leaves policy and entitlement, refer to the below table:

    Employees do get sick once in a while, which compels them to take the day/ days off from work and take rest. Hence, sick leave policies are a must for every country.

    For a comprehensive understanding of the leave policies of different GCC countries,  please refer to our articles relating to each country.
     

    Payroll Process

    The process of payroll is little complicated and time-consuming; hence it is always recommended to outsource your company’s payroll function. Outsourcing payroll will ensure the assistance of a team of trained payroll professionals and it frees up the time of the organization, helping them focus on other projects that add value to their business.

    One should be extra vigilant while selecting their payroll provider, as payroll data is highly sensitive, and one should opt for a provider that can ensure high levels of data security.
