JAMES BERRY & ASSOCIATES LEGAL CONSULTANTS
Welcome to James Berry & Associates, one of the longest established legal practices in Dubai.
In light of recent regulations introduced by the government, below is a summary of what this means to you and your business.
The UAE has moved fast to isolate and control the spread of Covid-19. It has also rushed rules into place to ease financial pressure on companies, help them make cash reserves last longer and stabilise the job market. For private sector expatriate staff, it is possible for a company to legally offer job opportunities to their surplus staff to other companies who need their skills. Done correctly, it is also possible to reduce wages and hours and to utilise annual vacation or unpaid leave as a temporary fix which benefits both employer and worker, combined with working from home.
These measures are temporary. They are to be used to protect working capital and they are very different from the rules we are all used to. In order to save jobs, conserve cash and ultimately protect your business and the economy during these difficult times, companies who are adversely affected by the Coronavirus pandemic should take the necessary action urgently.
If we can be of any assistance please write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
