The webinar will be an opportunity for attendees to understand and discuss the key changes being introduced to the UAE workforce in light of the introduction of the new UAE Labour Law.

We will be highlighting and discussing the immediate and red-flag changes that you should be aware of and the impact those changes are likely to have on your employment policies, contracts and workforce relationships.

Agenda

  • Fixed term vs unlimited term vs part-time contracts – a key area of development under the new law and how does this impact employers in practice?
  • Employment benefits and entitlements – what is the impact of the new law on sick leave, annual leave, family leave and other statutory benefits?
  • Employment terminations – redundancy, poor performance, gross misconduct. What does the new law change in this regard and what is the risk to companies?
  • Immediate steps – in advance of the implementation of the new law in February 2022, what should HR managers, business owners, in-house lawyers be doing at this stage?
