The Abu Dhabi Judicial Department (ADJD) has organised a symposium entitled ‘Problematic issues of labour disputes in government sector companies’ to raise awareness of the rights and duties of workers and employers, in accordance with the UAE laws.
The symposium, which was held through videoconferencing, dealt with the legal procedures related to labour disputes, the mechanisms developed to deal with government company disputes, internal regulations, and the impact of violating the labour law.
During the symposium, Counsellor Abdullah Faris Al Nuaimi, President of the Abu Dhabi Labour Court, spoke about the procedures applied to consider labour disputes in government companies, by allocating a special path for these disputes in a way that ensures each party obtains his or her rights in accordance with the laws regulating the labour sector.
For his part, Counsellor Ali Hassan Al Hashemi, Vice President of Abu Dhabi Labour Court, discussed the impact of amending the internal regulations and the need to comply with the laws, as well as the mechanisms and controls for a worker’s acknowledgment of receiving his dues under a settlement, whether the financial rights due before or after the end of the working relationship.
