Expatriate medical insurance policyholders in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) are set to benefit from new working rules which come into effect next year.
According to GMA News, some restrictions on foreign workers with an expired job contract will be lifted in the new year.
UAE minister of Labour Sagr Gobash announced the changes, which will mean that an expatriate employee will be granted a new work permit at the end of their contract without the current six-month ban on finding new employment.
However, in order to receive the new permit, an expatriate health insurance customer will have to meet two conditions: firstly that the original work relationship has ended cordially and secondly that the expat has worked for their employer for at least two years.
Mr Gobash commented that the new measures are designed to "infuse broader flexibility in the labour market and strike a balance in the contractual relationship between the employer and worker", according to the news source.
