Forced resignation uae Labour Law

The UAE labour law outlines legitimate reasons for ending employment.

However, according to Article 47 of the new Labor Law, termination of an employee’s service by the employer is unjustified if the termination is due to the following:

  • The employee filed a serious complaint against the employer with the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratization.
  • The employee files a lawsuit against the employer, and the lawsuit is proven.

Suppose an employee feels that they have been unfairly terminated.

In that case, they can file a complaint with the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratization to investigate the reasons for the termination and attempt to reach an amicable settlement between the employee and employer.

If the Ministry fails to resolve the issue amicably, it refers the case to the appropriate court.

Suppose it is found that the employee was terminated unfairly.

In that case, the court may order the employer to pay compensation to the employee based on the nature of the job, the extent of damage to the employee, and their years of service.

The compensation amount cannot exceed the employee’s salary for three months, based on their last official wage.

In addition to compensation, the employee retains the right to receive end-of-service and notice compensation and any other entitlements the employer owes.
