New Iraqi Labor Law

American Bar Association
Year in Review
Section of International Law
Vol. 51 (2017)
pp. 703 et seq.

 

In October 2016, the Iraqi legislature issued a new Iraqi Labor Law, Law 37/2015 (New Law), which replaced the old Iraqi Labor Law, Law 71/1987 (Old Law), in its entirety and entered into force on February 7, 2016. The New Law seeks to align Iraqi employment legislation with the standards of the International Labor Organization (ILO). Although the New Law — as the Old Law — was drafted as a piece of federal legislation applying to the whole of Iraq, it remains to be seen whether it will be applied in the Kurdish region in Iraq. In fact, a regional labor law for the Kurdish region has been under review by the Kurdish parliament for some time now. Most notably, the New Law introduced an end-of-service gratuity similar to that existing in other Middle Eastern jurisdictions, provisions of collective labor rights including the right to strike (which was banned in 1987 by the Old Law), and improved protection against discrimination in the workplace. This contribution provides an overview of the new law.

Amendments to the United Arab Emirates' Labor Law

American Bar Association
Year in Review
Section of International Law
Vol. 51 (2017)
pp. 713 et seq.

 

In late 2015, the United Arab Emirates’ Federal Ministry of Labor (now Federal Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratization) issued three decrees amending certain provisions of the UAE Federal Labor Law, Federal Law 8/1980 (UAE Labor Law): Ministerial Decrees 764/2015,121 765/2015,122 and 766/2015. All three decrees came into effect in January 2016. They introduced a compulsory standard employment agreement (Ministerial Decree No. 764), amended the provisions of the UAE Labor Law concerning termination of employment (Ministerial Decree No. 765), and introduced new conditions for obtaining new work permits (Ministerial Decree No. 766). Furthermore, the Ministry amended some provisions of the Wage Protection System when it passed Ministerial Decree No. 739 in the fall of 2016. In particular, the new decree introduced increased penalties for non-compliance with the provisions of the WPS regulations. This contribution highlights the changes relevant for businesses in the UAE.
