UAE to unify public and private work systems

The Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation announced that the working systems of the federal government and private sectors will be unified.

Starting February 2, 2022, employees will get the same types of leaves and have the option to opt for flexible, part-time and temporary work models in both federal government entities and private sectors.

Under the new Federal Decree Law no. 47 of 2021, only limited contracts will be applied in the UAE’s labour market. Employees across the country will also be protected under anti-discrimination provisions that prohibit employers from recruiting on the basis of race, colour, gender, religion, nationality, social origin, or disability.

Dr. Abdulrahman Al Awar, Minister of Human Resources and Emiratization, said the unified general provisions aim to build a flexible and competitive workplace that safeguards employee rights in a balanced manner across the country.

“Through unifying both sectors, we aspire to establish an integrated, sustainable and efficient work environment in the rapidly-changing post-pandemic world.”
