UAE: Guidelines on Introducing Employee’s Rights and Legal Duties Issued

Alroeya, 22 February 2022: The UAE’s Human Resources and Emiratisation Ministry has launched a guide aimed at informing workers in the private sector about their rights and duties under Federal Decree-Law No. 33/2021 on the regulation of labour relations and the Implementing Regulations.

The guide includes a set of instructions which will increase the worker’s awareness of their rights and duties during the period before their arrival in the UAE as well as after their arrival in the country and practicing their work.

It also contains instructions on what to do when the employment relationship ends.

Before the worker comes to the country, the guide provides a package of instructions for workers. This includes fully reviewing the job offer, especially in terms of the job title, responsibilities, privileges and the value of the wage. It also includes reviewing the detailed annex attached to the job offer, which states their rights and duties under the Law.

It will be published in seven languages, including Arabic, English, Urdu, Bengali and Chinese Hindi and Malayalam. For full story, click here.
