Dubai International Financial Centre Issues Employment Law Amendments

Dubai’s International Financial Centre has enacted the Employment Law Amendment Law, DIFC Law No. 4/2021.

It brings the Qualifying Scheme regime under the Employment Law in line with the DFSA’s Employee Money Purchase Scheme, so that only a single layer of regulation is applied to these schemes.

The amendments also clarify the application of limitation periods to claims made under the Employment Law, the accrual of vacation leave, the duration of the probationary period for short term fixed-term contracts and certain definitions in the Law.

In addition, it modifies the basic workplace health and safety requirements under the Employment Law, to take working from home arrangements into account.
