The Middle East and Africa region has experienced a myriad of transformative legislative developments that have contributed to shaping the employment landscape. These changes reflect the commitment of governments in the region to enhance labour relations, promote nationalisation initiatives, and address emerging challenges in the workforce.

Our client event invited our employment specialists to share insights on how best to navigate the ever-changing employment landscape in the region. 

Our employment team addressed these changes and explored the implications for employers, employees, and the overall business environment in the Middle East and Africa, as well as exploring other trends within the employment landscape across the UAE (including DIFC and ADGM), KSA, Qatar (including the QFC) and Egypt.

Our panellists addressed the following discussion points:
•    a regional overview;
•    a look at digitised processes in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia; and 
•    an overview of the GCC common law jurisdictions (ADGM, DIFC, and QFC). 

We have prepared an in-depth special briefing, designed to support and inform our clients about these changes, and the potential impact.
