New labour courts to speed up cases


This was stated by Mohammed bin Nakhira Al Daheri, Minister of Justice, while talking to Khaleej Times.

He said the special courts will ensure that labour disputes are resolved within the shortest possible time.

The minister said the delay in making decisions is because of late submission of technical reports. He said that the ministry had now assigned a group of experts to look into those problems and suggest ways to resolve them.

On the procedures to be carried out by the ministry in order to ensure speedy action on labour issues, he said that the ministry had prepared a plan of action and important measures would be undertaken immediately after the enforcement of the new law.

Al Daheri said the ministry would increase the number of judges and courts would be expanded to accelerate work.

The ministry will take every step to ensure justice and speedy implementation of court decisions to help labourers get their rights, he said.

The minister also said that the ministry was currently collecting statistics on the number and types of labour issues during the past five years.

The cases where decisions were delayed will be identified to find out the causes of delay and to suggest ways to iron out difficulties and ensure quicker solutions in the future.
