Room at the top for this Dubai penthouse



A multimillion-dirham pad in Dubai Marina’s most expensive tower is up for sale.

For Dh26 million, you can buy a penthouse that totals 6,370 square feet, and boasts four bedrooms and a maid’s room – as well as more than 20 other rooms.

The balcony of your new purchase offers views of the Jumeirah Palm, and allows you to look out on the tourists and beachgoers below. The tower is 210 metres tall, which means you will enjoy exceptional views over one of Dubai’s most exclusive neighbourhoods.

The pool’s temperature is controlled by hand. Your car is catered for with a custom valet service. There’s a gym, naturally.

Buyers will also have access to a 24-hour concierge service, and a private health club and spa.

The property was designed by Atkins, the company that was behind the design of the Burj Al Arab.

The penthouse is located next to Dubai Marina Mall, and the Ibn Battuta Mall, so shopping addicts will be well catered for. It is also next to the Dubai Marina walk, which means you will have plenty of beachside walking and waterfront dining to choose from.

The building won gongs after its opening from the Homes Overseas Awards. It was presented with the Gold Award for best luxury development, and won prizes for best use of technology, and best interior design.

You will be living in one of Dubai’s most exclusive districts, where high-flyers amble and stroll between artificial and natural shorelines.

Your rights as an employee

The government has taken an increasingly tough line against companies that fail to pay employees on time. Three years ago, the Cabinet passed a decree allowing the government to halt the granting of work permits to companies with wage backlogs.

The new measures passed by the Cabinet in 2016 were an update to the Wage Protection System, which is in place to track whether a company pays its employees on time or not.

If wages are 10 days late, the new measures kick in and the company is alerted it is in breach of labour rules. If wages remain unpaid for a total of 16 days, the authorities can cancel work permits, effectively shutting off operations. Fines of up to Dh5,000 per unpaid employee follow after 60 days.

Despite those measures, late payments remain an issue, particularly in the construction sector. Smaller contractors, such as electrical, plumbing and fit-out businesses, often blame the bigger companies that hire them for wages being late.

The authorities have urged employees to report their companies at the labour ministry or Tawafuq service centres — there are 15 in Abu Dhabi.
