penalties for labour law violation

In a bid to protect the interests of employees, the Federal Decree has clarified that employers who violate the labour law can be heavily penalized. The employers can face criminal and financial penalties, including a year in jail and a fine of up to ten million AED if they violate the new labour law.

A Federal Decree was announced by the UAE authorities regarding fines that should be imposed for labour law violations. Federal Decree-Law No. 33/2021 states clear rules with regard to the maximum fines that could be imposed.

The rights outlined in the Law are the bare minimum that must be provided to employees and do not supersede any other legislation, agreement, undertaking, law, or employment contract.
