The UAE has launched a multilingual booklet entitled ‘The Worker: Rights and Duties’ on Monday, which will be distributed to workers across the country, reports official news agency WAM. The booklet will be available in six languages including Arabic, English, Filipino (Tagalog), Persian, Chinese and Urdu and will be circulated to all federal government departments, NGOs, labor accommodations, and media outlets in the country.

“The worker should have a legitimate residency in the country so as to enjoy all rights enshrined in international legislations and conventions on human rights in general and labor rights in particular, otherwise he will not only be liable to legal accountability but also vulnerable to exploitation,” the report quoted Lt Colonel Salah al-Gul, director of Office of Culture of Respect for Law as saying.

He also stressed that workers should abide by the laws in the country, or else they would be subject to “legal accountability.”

Gul hoped that the booklet “would be a good friend of the worker, helping him to stay under the umbrella of the law,” said the WAM report.
