The Abu Dhabi Labour Court warned the bosses of the private sector in the United Arab Emirates on Sunday, June 19, to follow the new employment rules strictly, which came into force on February 2.

The court conducted an online meeting for employers to make sure that they were utterly conversant with their rights and responsibilities, as well as that a lack of knowledge cannot be a reason to break the law.

The lecture was conducted in collaboration with the Abu Dhabi Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the Abu Dhabi Judicial Department.

During the session, the deputy head of the Abu Dhabi Labour Court, Judge Ali Hasan Alshateri, highlighted about how the new law provides options that were not available before and also strengthens the rights of employers and employees.

He further stated that the legal literacy programme was regarding the cases that were being presented before the court, and it was significant that employers were aware of the cases involving the law.

Judge Alshateri also said that the new law helps to make an attractive environment for not only investors but also skilled labour.

“It enhances the efficiency and sustainability of the labour market in the nation,” he said, and that it was essential that a balance was attained to protect both parties.

The new labour law gives individuals the opportunity to opt for temporary and flexible work, including freelance jobs, reduced working hours and shared jobs.

But all of these factors must be discussed and agreed upon by the employer.

The recent laws also signify and emphasise the protection of anyone at the workplace and particularly employees. It bans discrimination among employees on the basis of colour, race, religion, gender, nationality, disability or social origin.

Strict action can be taken against employers who do not follow the recent laws.
