The decision taken by His Highness Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al
Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Presidential Affairs, and
Chairman of the Abu Dhabi Judicial Department (ADJD), to establish the Abu
Dhabi Labour Court, is a step in the right direction.
The specialised court that looks into crimes against domestic
labour, is a testimony to the UAE’s respect for labourers, regardless of their status
and classification. It also demonstrated the country’s commitment to protect workers’
rights and their dignity.
The UAE is country ruled by laws, rules and regulations that were
deigned to protect the rights of both parties involved in employment contract, and
enhance the levels of transparency and balance in their relationship, at par
with relevant international standards and treaties.
Highness’s decision will have a great positive impact on the employer - domestic
worker relationship, as it instills respect for workers’ rights, which were
guaranteed by the federal law that was
issued by His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the
UAE, regarding support service workers.
