United Arab Emirates: Ministerial Resolution No. 787 of 2017 Regulating Teleworking

Teleworking, as defined by the Resolution, is the concept of using information and communication technology (ICT) to work away from the regular place of work, whether on a daily, weekly or monthly part-time or full-time basis. Under the new law some UAE nationals will have the right to request that their employer consider facilitating teleworking. The right will only be vested in those UAE nationals under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation who have worked for the same employer for at least six months if employed on a full-time basis or at least one year if employed on a part-time basis.
