UAE Changes Its Labor Law – Consider Recruitment Process Outsourcing

UAE Changes Its Labor Law: Employment Offers Are Now Binding

In accordance with the amended UAE Labor Law, effective from January 1, 2016, job offers will become binding and integral parts of employment contracts. This change to the Labor Law is intended to combat the abuses of expatriate employees who are induced to accept jobs in the UAE with lucrative offers, but upon their arrival to the UAE, are offered employment contracts, which are vastly different from the original offers.

The specific changes to the Labor Law are summarized below:

The new Labor Law requires the employers to review their existing recruitment processes and forms in order to ensure that all job offers and employment contracts are in compliance with the new requirements. Many companies are considering recruitment process outsourcing in order to stay compliant with new regulations.

Please contact your service delivery team with any questions regarding the above.
