The court affirmed that it is paying special attention to the speedy settlement of labour cases and facilitating the payment of amounts owed to workers, in accordance with the directives of Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of the Presidential Court and Chairman of Abu Dhabi Judicial Department (ADJD), who has stressed on the importance of achieving speedy resolution of cases and shortening the litigation time to achieve the main objective of the Judicial Department.

The Labour Court also noted that the procedures adopted, in coordination with the concerned authorities, allow for the resolution of the disputes submitted to its consideration in record time, and ensure that all parties obtain their rights within the controls and frameworks specified in the law regulating labour relations, so as to enhance the efforts provided by the UAE to safeguard and protect the rights of workers under the rule of law.

Moreover, the court praised the cooperation and integration between strategic partners in providing services to help workers meet their vital needs during the transitional phase towards the final settlement of their situation, as well as the outstanding efforts of the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation in addressing the conditions of workers who wish to work for other companies in the UAE.
