UAE Labour and Employment Law

Live virtual course

Available for in-house delivery upon request.

Delivered in partnership with leading law firm Clyde&Co, this course prepares HR practitioners to successfully handle common labour law issues and mitigate the impact of unforeseen events while protecting the rights of their workforce - from recruitment to termination. The programme has been updated to reflect the November 2021 updates on employment contracts and their implications for employers, when over 40 laws were included in the changes, which together represent the largest legal reform in the nation’s 50-year history, including anti-discrimination, equal pay, new fixed term contracts and more.  

Key outcomes: 

> Get the latest on the November 2021 UAE Labour Law updates
> Learn how to mitigate risk during unprecedented events
Ensure the continuity of the businesses, while serving all stakeholders
> Understand the impact of employment law at the start of the employment relationship
> Recognise the main rights that the employee has during the employment period
> Identify the issues to address at the termination of the employment
