Part Time Work New Rules in UAE:

As per MOHRE new rules announced on 14 December 2019, companies in the UAE can now hire employees (workers) on part-time contracts from both inside and outside the UAE.



Yes it is true; a new system implemented by MOHRE (the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation) previously known as Ministry of Labour (MOL) allows employees - both Emiratis and foreign workers - to work for more than one employer (company) without having to obtain an approval from their primary employer (first employer).

The move is in implementation of a resolution issued by Nasser bin Thani Al Hamli, Minister of Human Resources and Emiratisation. Al Hamli said the new system would promote flexibility in the labour market and fulfil the needs of employers "based on the availability of employees in the labour market" It would also "reduce dependence on foreign workers", he added. He pointed out that the part-time contracts would reduce labour costs, especially when it comes to employees who are already in the country.
