Practice Areas


Employment law in the UAE is governed by the Federal Labor Law No. 8 of 1980, as amended, and its implementing regulations. The law sets forth the rights and obligations of both employees and employers and covers various aspects of employment relationships, including working hours, holidays, sick leave, termination of employment, and dispute resolution.

Under the UAE labor law, employees have the right to a safe working environment, fair treatment, and protection against discrimination and exploitation. Employers, on the other hand, are obligated to provide their employees with a safe and healthy working environment, pay fair wages, and comply with all relevant labor laws and regulations.

The UAE has also established specialized labor courts to hear and resolve disputes arising from employment relationships. Employees can file a complaint with the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratization or the Labor Court if they believe their rights have been violated.

Employment law in the UAE is constantly evolving, and expert legal guidance and representation through the intricacies of employment law can ensure both employees and employers to stay up to date on the latest developments and ensure compliance.
