Employment & HR Policies
Employment and HR Policies
In the United Arab Emirates (UAE), an employment contract is far more than just a piece of paper; it is the cornerstone of a harmonious and structured working relationship. This legally binding agreement, entered into by both employers and employees, delineates the terms and conditions governing their professional engagement. Ensuring the presence of a comprehensive and legally compliant employment contract and HR policy is not just advisable; it is vital for maintaining transparency, discipline, and mutual understanding within the workplace.

In accordance with Article 47 of the UAE Labor Law, the termination of an employee by their employer is deemed unlawful when the employee’s complaint to the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation (MoHRE) or legal action against the employer is proven valid.
If an employee believes they have been unjustly dismissed, they have the option to file a complaint with MoHRE. The ministry will make every effort to facilitate an amicable resolution. If such a resolution proves elusive, the case will be referred to the appropriate jurisdictional court.
Upon successfully substantiating a claim of arbitrary dismissal in court, supported by sufficient documentary evidence, the court may order the employer to provide compensation to the employee. The compensation awarded will take into account various factors, including the nature of the work, the extent of harm suffered by the employee, and the duration of their employment. It is crucial to note that, in all circumstances, the compensation amount must not exceed the equivalent of three months’ worth of the employee’s wages, calculated based on their last entitled wage.
Additionally, besides seeking compensation, the employee has the right to claim their gratuity, any outstanding notice period payments, or any other unpaid dues owed to them by the employer.
