Overview (Program Summary)

The recent announcement of Federal Decree Law No. 33 of 2021 amending the UAE Labour Law may reflect a significant shift in the UAE’s employment law landscape - and much has been made of the ground-breaking nature of the Decree.

Join us for a detailed discussion with Luke Tapp and Ruth Stephen of Pinsent Masons, to consider the following areas:

• 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?

• Working days: the new working week- its impact on the private sector and what options are available to employers.

• 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?

You are welcome to submit your questions in advance of the session and you will have an opportunity to raise questions during the session too.

The session will be hosted in zoom and the link is available via the registration page & will be emailed as a reminder of the event.
