DIFC's new Employment Law comes into effect August 28

By Wam

The Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) has announced that the new Employment Law - No 2 of 2019 - will come into effect on August 28, 2019.

The DIFC Employment Law enhancements are integral to creating an attractive environment for the almost 24,000-strong workforce based in the DIFC to thrive, while protecting and balancing the interests of both employers and employees, said Essa Kazim, governor of DIFC, in a statement earlier.

Revised provisions coming into effect address key issues, including paternity leave, sick pay and end-of-service settlements.
