Employment & Labour

With the rapid growth of the UAE over the last few years the need for labour and human resources is always increasing. The UAE workforce is largely drawn from outside the UAE and due to historically unsatisfactory employment practices, there is increasing and ever evolving government regulation affecting employer and employee relations.

In addition, due to the expatriate nature of the UAE workforce, employment law and immigration law are inextricably intertwined. This makes an understanding of both the applicable employment and labour laws very important.

Our team has a full understanding of the UAE labour laws and their important interrelationship with the UAE immigration laws. At Lutfi & Co we are able to provide competent and cost effective advice on employment and labour law related matters, including preparation of employment contracts, advising on employee's statutory entitlements and conditions, termination of employment, employee restraints of trade and employee residency permits.
