UAE: 84 Abu Dhabi workers to receive USD1.4m in Labour Court settlement


"Abu Dhabi Labour Court settles collective complaint paying 84 workers AED 5mlm," 12 Oct 2021

The Abu Dhabi Labour Court, in cooperation with the Labour Crisis Management Committee, has successfully settled a collective dispute involving 84 workers of a company, and completed the delivery of their financial entitlements for a total amount of 5,175,818 dirhams, through prompt legal measures after the Mobile Court moved to the location of the workers' accommodation, while ensuring that all precautionary and protective measures are observed to avoid infection with Covid-19.

The Abu Dhabi Labour Court emphasised its commitment to handle and settle the dispute in record time, by facilitating and expediting the registration of the claims, hearing the cases and delivering judgments with the entitlements of each worker separately with expedited enforcement. A Court order was also issued to maintain the workers at their place of residence and prevent their evacuation until they receive their entire entitlements, as well as to take the necessary steps to transfer the residence of the workers who so desire to other companies.
