We advise employers across industry sectors. Our work involves providing strategic advice to clients across the Middle East region enabling them to navigate comfortably through the local labor laws and enabling them to adopt best practices, deal with global mobility matters, and draft and adapt employment/HR policies, all in an effort to enhance integration and manage employee relations.

We have advised clients on regulatory compliance, drafting employment contracts (and supplemental employment agreements), secondment arrangements with distributors, and immigration and employment compliance. We have also handled several contentious employee terminations (including before all levels of Labor Courts in the UAE) relating to discrimination and wrongful terminations and a number of whistleblower cases/allegations.

Mayer Brown provides strategic employment and compliance advice to clients across the Middle East.
