Labor Disputes and non-Competition

A newcomer to the UAE may have the impression that labor laws and regulations favor the employer. But beware; this may not apply when a dispute with an employee is transferred to the Labor Court. Employers are continuously complaining of having employees running off with lists of their clients, or former employees pouching current employees without the employers being able to succeed in banning those employees from doing so.

Furthermore, courts rarely enforce non-competition clauses due to the fact that they are not drafted in a way that complies with applicable provisions of the labor law in the UAE. Our experience is employed to defend clients and present their case correctly before the courts, and to prepare clients for any future disputes by working closely with their HR department to draft insert the correct clauses in employment contracts.
