Employment Law in Dubai

STA houses a dedicated team of employment lawyers who have assisted numerous governmental, semi-governmental and private entities on various employment matters. We have secured significant and landmark precedents in the employment arena. Leading companies and multinationals turn to us for help and assistance in avoiding the courts in the first place. Our employment lawyers liaise and co-ordinate with our in-house teams to carry out necessary investigations, documentation review, due diligence, and audits where necessary.  
We assist clients on various aspects of employment law to ensure that companies can conduct their activities without any internal issues. Our employment practice includes advising clients on legal matters and validity of employment contracts and other related schedules such as non-compete and non-disclosure agreements. We also counsel firms in dealing with fraud detection, misconduct, and policy violations. Our team also provides necessary assistance and solutions in matters involving crisis management and crisis-avoidance. Our team also advises on avoiding any reputational damage and unforeseen legal consequences.  
Apart from our general employment practice, we also assist companies in drafting internal policies, labor contracts, employee manual and non-compete & non-disclosure agreements. We also have thorough knowledge and considerable experience in supporting companies with corporate policies and conducting due diligence (both in UAE and abroad) on the legal status of new recruits from other countries. We approach each employment matter distinctively and try to understand the client’s business, their commercial objectives and issue at hand before proposing any solutions. 
Our clients appreciate this practical approach and this, in turn, has led to several profound and long-term relationships wherein our clients value and regard us as their trusted partners who add significant value to their businesses.
