Labour contract UAE

A labour contract is a legal document that defines the rights and obligations of both the employer and the employee in the UAE. It is mandatory for every expatriate worker to have a valid labour contract before starting work in the country. A labour contract can be either limited or unlimited, depending on the duration and terms of the agreement.

Every labourer in UAE will get a labour card to show their labour contract. MOHRE no longer issues a physical labour card as it is integrated with the Emirates ID. However, you can still use your old labour card number and person code to access your employment card information online.
