The Austrian Business Council (ABC) and ANDERS LEGAL CONSULTANCY are organizing a webinar on:

The New Labour Law: 10 Important Areas of Change

Date: 25 February 2022

Time: 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM (Gulf Standard Time)

After more than forty years, the UAE has enacted a new labour law. Federal Decree-Law No. 33 of 2021 has come into force on 02.02.2022 and has fully replaced the old labour law, i.e. Federal Law No. 8 of 1980. The new labour law has amended, amongst others, the available types of employment contracts and work models as well as details concerning working hours, gratuity, termination and non-compete restrictions. This webinar will clarify important areas of change which both employers and employees alike need to be aware of.

The presenter will discuss:

– Key features of the new law
– Changes brought by the new law compared to the old one
– Things to do in your company to implement the new law
