How is redundancy processed in the UAE?

As per the UAE Labour Law, there is no statutory definition of redundancy or a procedure for the management of redundancy. Although in the past there have been labour cases whereby the labour court has recognised the employers right to restructure its business, employers are repeatedly advised to refer to the provisions on the termination of employment set out in the Labour Law when enquiring as to the process of redundancy.
