Employment

Our comprehensive employer legal services will take care of all your company needs

Every year UAE attracts people from across the world in search of employment. UAE is home to a large number of public and private organizations, from multinational organizations to SMEs. The country has extensive laws and regulations to protect its employers and employees from unfair treatment. The Federal law No. 8 of 1980 lays down the rules to be followed by both parties and the consequences of a breach. The Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation (MoHRE), is the government body responsible for maintaining the labour law and providing employment law services such as ensuring that both parties receive their rights.

Our employment law services for businesses include

  • Drafting and reviewing employment contracts
  • Consultation on Employment processes for companies
  • Termination
  • Handling employment disputes

Our team is well versed in assisting corporations with a range of employment related services. We advise government and private entities ranging from multinational organizations to startups. The legal consultants we work with ensure that all employment related processes are in line with the UAE Labour law including the selection and hiring process, contract reviewing, and employee management. Our team can also carry out necessary investigations for employers, document review, due diligence, and audits. We assist our clients on all aspects of employment law in order to prevent internal issues. The employer legal advice we provide protects our clients from employment related disputes.

We handle the full spectrum of employment related services for corporations.  We can draft contracts for employers, non-compete and non-disclosure agreements, and negotiate settlement terms following the termination of an employment contract. We also assist corporations in employment disputes before the Ministry of Human Resource and Emiratisation.

Employment disputes for Mainland companies are registered with the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation (MoHRE). In case the company is located within a free zone the relevant free zone authority handles the disputes. Disputes are first settled through alternative dispute resolution methods, however in case a conclusion cannot be reached both Mainland and free zone company employment disputes can be settled through the UAE Courts.
