Regulating employer-employee relationship in the private sector

The UAE Government passed a resolution under which private sector companies that are affected by COVID-19, may restructure their contractual relationship mutually with their employees. The resolution sets the procedures for the same.

Note: The above was implemented during the early phase of pandemic (in 2020) and was slowly phased out as the situation returned to normalcy. Ministerial Resolution No. 279 of 2020 regarding the Stability of Employment in Private Sector Establishments During the Application of Precautionary Measures to Control the Outbreak of the Novel Coronavirus is repealed pursuant to Ministerial Resolution No. 75 of 2022 (PDF, 250 KB).
