Revisions in the Sponsorship Law

Seabee has a great post on employee sponsorship law in the UAE. Read it here.

He begins by noting a Gulf News reports that Dubai is thinking of revising its law. But what is more interesting to me is another article in The National about New York University and Abu Dhabi. NYU is demanding certain labor conditions for workers building its Saadiyat Island campus. NYU and Abu Dhabi have agreed to a charter of rights.

What Seabee notes is that these rights are no different from current law. In short, Abu Dhabi is agreeing that it will enforce its own laws on the companies building the campus. Abu Dhabi is funding the construction.

Follow the link to Seabee's post for links to the news articles, and to current law.
