UAE Gratuity Calculator (Limited Contract)

Enter the following information to calculate your Gratuity.

As per UAE Labour Law, employees working in UAE are entitled to be paid by employer gratuity pay at the end of employment provided one year of service has been completed. No gratuity will be paid if employee resigns or gets terminated before one year of employment.


  • Last basic salary
    The last basic salary to be used as a basis for calculating gratuity but any other bonus and allowances such as housing, conveyance, overtime, children education etc. are not to be included in the gratuity Calculations.
  • Duration of employment
    At least one year of employment should have been completed to be entitled for gratuity.

Please also note Gratuity computation should be based on continuous employment. In other words, if the employee has been absent from work without pay during his/her period of service, that period should not be considered in calculating gratuity. However, please note that above gratuity calculator assumes that there is continuous service between the first and last working day. Therefore, in cases where employment is not continuous, the calculations done by gratuity calculator will need to be adjusted accordingly.

  • Period of employment less than 1 year, employee is not entitled to any gratuity.
