UAE Employment and Labour Law for Business
Navigating the complex and somewhat unique labour law of the UAE can be time-consuming and stressful for small to medium size businesses and entrepreneurs.
Human resource tasks such as performance management, dismissals, and recruitment must be performed in compliance with local laws. Furthermore, many employees are expatriates; therefore, organisations need to have a solid understanding of the UAE work visa rules.
At TWS Legal Consultants, we have been advising and representing UAE businesses on labour and corporate law matters for over ten years. The strength and expertise of our employment law team have ensured that our clients’ critical labour law matters are swiftly addressed and their interests robustly protected.
Our multi-lingual lawyers are registered with the UK Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) and the Dubai Legal Affairs Department. TWS Legal Consultants is a fully digital law firm. We can organise appointments via video conferencing if this suits your needs.
We cover a whole spectrum of employment law services including advising on all general and strategic employment matters, disciplinary and termination procedures, litigation, and end of service benefits (gratuity).
Our team is experienced in dealing with the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation (MOHRE), (formerly known as Ministry of Labor) and Freezone authorities. We can advise and provide legal support under the UAE and DIFC employment laws. We are also highly experienced in resolving employment conflicts through alternative dispute resolution (such as mediation and arbitration) and settlement agreements.
Our clients regularly tell us that our openness, responsiveness, and knowledgeable advice have led them to recommend our firm to others. As business people ourselves, we are committed to ensuring small to medium size organisations have access to up-to-date advice on employment law matters and an experienced advocate to act for them should an employee bring a claim.
We offer expert advice on:
- Business protection (restrictive covenants, confidentiality, non-competition)
- End of service
- Disciplinary and grievance procedures
- Settlement agreements
- Review of policy documentation, employment contracts, and employee handbooks
- Employment health checks
