UAE labour ministry to lift six-month ban in 2016
The new rule forms a part of the UAE's upcoming updated labour law for 2016
The UAE's labour ministry will reportedly lift its six-month ban if employment is mutually terminated.
Labour law in the Emirates previously stipulated a six-month ban on employees who terminate their contracts before the completion of their contractual period, typically two years.
According to Emirates24x7, this ban will be lifted starting January 2016, and applied on cases where employment agreements are mutually terminated by the employer and employee.
The UAE's Ministry of Labour also said employees will be allowed new work permits to join another facility immediately, even if the employee has not completed two years at the first facility.
However, the Ministry confirmed that workers under level IV and V who have not completed six months with the first establishment will be excluded from this rule, the daily added.
