Stop Strip Searching employees for confiscating their Tips

    1. Petition by

      Ahmed Ahmed

      United Arab Emirates

Emarat Petrol Stations has a no tips policy, and their workers are routinely strip searched to search for any tips they would have taken from the customers. If the tips are found they are immediately terminated from their job.

This petition is not about complaining against the no tip policy, but about the humiliating harassment meted out to the employees by strip searching.

These workers are paid not more than 272.25 US Dollars a month, many workers in Dubai including these gas station workers are predominantly migrants and hence they do not know or lack recourse to effectively redress such humiliating treatments.
