Domestic workers

The UAE Domestic Labour Law establishes the principle of informed consent, ensuring that workers are aware of the terms of the contract, nature of work, the workplace, the remuneration and the period of daily and weekly rest as set out by the executive regulations. Such consent is obtained before they cross their national borders. The domestic helpers law applies to 19 occupations. It prohibits discrimination among helpers on the basis of race, colour, gender, religion and political opinion.
