The UAE Ministry of Labour (MOL) yesterday announced a unique initiative to gather public feedback on a revised UAE Labour Law through a website specifically created for the purpose.
du, the new telecommunications operator in the UAE, is partnering with MOL to develop the interactive portal. At a joint press conference held yesterday, the Ministry of Labour and du announced the co branded interactive website on the revised labour law will be active for two months starting February6th, inviting valuable feedback from UAE residents. Initially the website will be in Arabic, followed shortly by an English version.
Commenting on the launch, Dr. Ali Al Ka’abi, Minister of Labour said: ‘The labour law is one of the most important mechanisms impacting the market. It is based on transparency and our partnerships with labourers, business people and the society at large. This initiative is an important step in translating our vision of continuing development and providing access to government services using the latest communications technology.
The Ministry of Labour invites all UAE residents to visit the portal and post their comments. The website will be active until April 6th, 2007, following which the Ministry will analyse the feedback and review the UAE Labour Law on the basis of public opinion, before it is passed.
