AAU College of Law Students Visit "Ministry of Labor"
As part of community engagement and in order to link the theoretical to the practical side, 40 students from the AAU College of Law received an orientation on the laws regulating labor relations and the procedures followed by the Ministry of Labor (MOL) in inspecting the labor complaints it receives. This came during a visit organized by the College of Law to the Ministry of Labor in Dubai where the students were briefed on how labor complaints are documented, the method of looking into them, the recent interactive communication system at the ministry, the labor inquiries department, and the legal researchers.
Mr. Jassim Al Bannai, Director of MOL Legal Affairs, offered an explanation highlighting the main articles of the labor relations law related to solving labor disputes. He highlighted that the Law is the umbrella for governing any disputes between business parties.
Further, the students met legal researchers and observed closely the procedures of resolving labor disputes beginning from summoning the disputed parties and listening to their views after which an attempt is made to resolve the dispute, but if that effort fails, the case is referred to MOL court within a period not exceeding 15 days from the day MOL receives the complaint.
On his part, Dr. Bashar Al Momani, Head of the Department of Private Law, mentioned that the labor relations law is a vital course for the students who interacted with both the theoretical and practical orientation of the law and the procedures of processing labor complaints.
At the end of the visit, on behalf of the AAU, the college of Law, and the students, Dr. Al Momani presented his appreciation and gratitude to the Undersecretary, as well as to the legal consultant, Mr. Jassim Al Bannai, for the hospitality with which students were received in addition to lauding the extreme organization and efficient work at the MOL.
