The Oath GC Talk Series – UAE Labour Law: challenges and practical considerations

Charles Laubach

This session was organised by The Oath as part of the GC Talk Series.


Most of us are familiar with the black-letter text of the most important laws and regulations governing labor and employment. However, there are many areas of ambiguity and there are many situations where the law and the practice in the market do not coincide. The Oath in association with Afridi & Angell highlighted some of the major problem areas for employers in this GC Talk Series Session.


The session, led by partner Charles Laubach, covered a general overview of UAE labour laws, how these laws apply in practice and how disputes are resolved. The discussion primarily addressed:


  • Recruitment and hiring of personnel, including issues facing employers who recruit locally and those who recruit internationally.


  • Employee awareness of and compliance with workplace rules.


  • Holidays and overtime.


  • Bonuses.


  • Savings, pensions and benefits.


  • Termination of employment.
