Labor Laws in The United Arab Emirates

Hiring executives in The United Arab Emirates is no small task, and you must be aware of the local laws and norms before starting the executive search process. While investigating the possibility of executive search and recruitment in The United Arab Emirates, it is important to gain a clear understanding of Arabia’s labor laws. Here are some Arabian labor laws to consider.

The United Arab Emirates’ labor laws do not allow trade unions to exist. The right to collective bargaining and the right to strike are not recognized, and the Ministry of Labor has the power to force workers to go back to work. Migrant workers who participate in a strike can have their work permits cancelled and be deported. There are very few anti-discrimination laws.

Business Background

Petroleum and natural gas exports play an important role in the economy, especially in Abu Dhabi. More than 85% of The United Arab Emirates’ economy was based on the exports of natural resources in 2009. The United Arab Emirates has tried to reduce its dependency on oil exports by diversifying the economy, particularly in the financial, tourism and construction sectors. While Abu Dhabi remains relatively conservative in its approach, Dubai, which has far smaller oil reserves, is bolder in its diversification policy.
