Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan issues new Federal Law.

Starting tomorrow, September 25, the salaries of women in the private sector should be equal to those of men, as a new federal law takes effect.

The President, His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, issued Federal Law No. 6 of 2020, where the first article states that women and men must have the same salaries if they hold the same position or if they are doing the same type of work.

The new law changes Article 32 of Federal Law No. 8 of 1980 on labour relations. Aimed at empowering women, the policy is expected to encourage more female talents to join the private sector.

A champion of gender equality, the UAE has made great strides over the past few years in supporting diversity and gender equality in the workplace, led by the efforts of the government and the Gender Balance Council. Besides being at the forefront of promoting women empowerment in the region, it has been ranked firstĀ in the world when it comes to women’s representation in parliament.
