The Pandemic Covid-19 has affected almost the entire world. UAE could not remain safe from this as well. This situation produces many Employment, Business and Financial Disputes. The government introduced new rules, guidelines for saving the interest of Employees, Employers and Companies here. It was the best action taken by the local government. But it is also observed that a few companies took the wrong advantage of the current situation. These companies terminated the employees without any reason just by making lame excuses and putting false accusations as well as employees were also found treating the companies outside the law. Labour LAW UAE rules apply to every employer or employee who has tried or trying to take the wrong advantage of any emergency situation. People who are thinking that UAE Labour Law works with flaws or loopholes then they are absolutely wrong. UAE Labour Law protects the employees as well as employers. Nobody can play smarter tactics or cross the limits. If any party does then he should be prepared to pay the compensation.
Whether it is a normal situation or emergency, lawyers availability and the hiring process is the same. Law Firms, Lawyers, and Legal Consultants can be hired with the same procedure and they are helping people in the same manner as they were in the past. It does not mean that the Power of Attorney is no more required, it does not mean that the engagement letter is not signed more, it does not mean that less time will be taken in Court Hearings, and it does not mean that legal expense will be increased. Government is keeping the necessary expenses the same, which is one of the best steps taken by the local government. Yes, time estimation can be a little extended. Few things are changed like many things are being done online e.g. notarization, court hearings etc. But the legal system and court justice system has not been compromised. It does not mean that Employers or Employees are taking the wrong advantage of the Law. Law is still the same, enforceable and implemented by the Government. Very few counties could control all the operations including legal services up to 100% perfection level in this pandemic, and UAE is one of those Countries who maintained the quality, excellence and results in every sector. Despite the challenges and troubles, the UAE government-managed everything with great planning. OLD Cases & News Cases in the Court, Police, Public Prosecution, Immigration, in fact, everything belonging to the legal industry does not get affected. Its beauty of government rules.
People who are sure or have consulted the expert UAE Labour Law Lawyers on Arbitrary Dismissal assurance then they can lodge the Complaint in Court and ask for legal justice. Like we said before, an emergency situation or pandemic does not mean the employer can exploit the rights of employees and vice versa. Legal Support Every time and for Everyone is the motto of the local government.
