The Minister of Human Resources and Emiratisation, Dr. Abdulrahman Al Awar, has hailed the UAE’s unwavering support for the labour market by endorsing legislation to enhance its sustainability nationwide.
The Minister made the statement as he visited Al Naboodah Labour Accommodation in Al Awir, Dubai, on the occasion of International Workers’ Day, which is observed globally on May 1 every year.
“The UAE’s celebration of the Workers’ International Day is reflective of the State’s respect for all workers on the Emirati soil and the UAE leadership’s appreciation for their contributions to various economic sectors,” the minister said.
“The Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation is celebrating this occasion this year under the theme ‘Our workers are the pulse of our Achievements’ in yet a renewed affirmation of their pivotal role in the UAE labor market,” the Minister added, noting the advanced ranking enjoyed by the UAE in the global competitiveness reports, where the country is reckoned among the fastest economies that have recovered from the repercussions of the Covid-19 pandemic thanks to the incentives provided by the government to the private sector.
“This occasion comes this year after the UAE started enforcing, on February 2nd, the Federal Decree-Law Regarding the Regulation of Employment Relationship, which ensures protection of the rights and obligations of both parties in a balanced manner,” he concluded.
