Developing HR Policy and Procedures
Managing people effectively in any organisation becomes much easier with the correct HR policies and procedures in place. We can develop tailor-made HR policies that will cover all aspects of the employment lifecycle, from the early recruitment stage through to an employee’s exit. These should also always be backed up by the various HR forms required, for which we can provide templates – Leave application form, Expense claim form, Employee record, etc.
Reviewing Employment Contracts
All employees working in UAE should be doing so under a relevant labour contract that is in accordance with UAE Labour Law/ Rules and Regulations of Free Zones. We can help draft and review offer letters, review labour contracts and ensure their compliance.
UAE Labour Law
Every corporate entity operating in the UAE is subject to UAE labour Law and must ensure maximum compliance with Labour Law regulations. We are able to assist organisations with any and all questions pertaining to this legislation including but limited to issues such as; working hours, public holidays, working hours during Ramadan, contract termination, etc. We are also able to advise on variations between Free Zone and onshore regulations, as well as respective differences between each of the Free Zones themselves. We’re also committed to timely updating our clients with regards to any changes in legislation announced by the government.
End of service calculations in UAE
Calculation of End of Service gratuity is very important and vary greatly according to the nature of an employee’s contract and the length of time served with the company, as well as whether the employee resigned themselves or was dismissed. We assist our clients in making the dismissal process as less expensive as possible.
