Minister of Human Resources reaffirms 'unwavering support' for workers' rights


Dr. Abdulrahman Al Awar, Minister of Human Resources and Emiratisation, has hailed the UAE leadership’s unwavering support for the labor market by endorsing legislation conducive to enhancing the elasticity, resilience and sustainability of the labor market nationwide.

The Minister made the statements as he visited Al Naboodah Labour Accommodation in Al Awir, Dubai, on the occasion of the International Workers’ Day, which is observed globally on May 1st 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.
