MoL organises workshops to educate Tas’heel employees about laws and regulations

DUBAI: The Ministry of Labour is educating employees of Tas’heel Service Centres in Abu Dhabi about labour laws and regulations, as well as providing basic information on customer rights and the duties of employment parties registered in the labour market. For this purpose, the ministry organised five workshops last week hosting 99 citizens from service centres located in various areas of Abu Dhabi. Tas’heel is an online government system designed to simplify all labour related processes, improve output volume and increase efficiency.

He also reviewed relevant initiatives by the Ministry of Labour aimed at organising and stabilising the labour market through enhancing the national workforce and to achieve labour protection, flexibility and capabilities to attract suitable talents through an integrated system of standards, policies and regulatory tools. The initiative aims at achieving institutional partnership and excellent services.
