The UAE's labour authority, the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation (MOHRE), has published its first annual report highlighting the state of labour rights in the country. 

MOHRE's Workers Welfare Report 2015 focuses on measures to ensure that all workers that come to the UAE "are recruited and employed equitably, safe in their place of work, and free to advance professionally and personally". 

The publication of this report is part of a drive to increase transparency about labour issues, improve data reporting, and ensure that discussion about the transnational labour mobility and economic development is frank and fair.

In a forward to the 2015 report, Saqr Ghobash, minister of human resources and Emiratisation, said: "The UAE’s workforce is our greatest asset: the driver for growth that enables economic diversification and secures the future for tomorrow’s generation.

"MOHRE is committed to ensuring our workforce is protected and its dynamism is harnessed for the good of all.

"Therefore the ministry has launched a series of initiatives and resolutions to promote workers' welfare in the country, most notably, standardising labour contracts in order to promote clarity and transparency for workers and employers," he added.
