UAE: Employees can work for more than one employer from 2022

Starting from February 2, 2022, employees can work for more than one employer in the UAE under the new labour laws announced on Monday.

Employees in the private sector can work part-time, temporary or flexible. Besides the regular full-time scheme, introducing new types of work safeguards employee rights, enabling them to engage in more than one job and use their skills differently.

Further models of work, including self-employment and condensed working weeks, are expected to be introduced once the executive regulations are laid out to oversee the law implementation. The executive regulations of the law will specify the responsibilities of both parties, including gratuity at the end of the employment relationship, depending on each work model.
