Dubai Government along with Jebel Ali Free Zone (Jafza) has launched the first ever virtual court in all of middle east to handle labour cases. This is part of Jafza's effort to achieve excellence in its digital ecosystem and integrated business environment. The court is connected to the Dubai Courts via a live broadcast system that is kept at the highest degree of security systems. Judges can also conduct hearings, adjudicate, and issue their rulings using an electronic link to Jafza's digital labour contracts system and other associated information. The Virtual Court, which is located in Jafza Building 14, is similar to regular courthouses at the Dubai Courts' headquarters in that it is equipped with everything needed for the litigation process. It is also backed up by cutting-edge cybersecurity solutions. The Head of the Labour Court at the Dubai Courts has hailed this move as a significant development to the judicial system.
