UAE cancels ‘no objection’ rule

A UAE labour ministry has cancelled a rule which required private sector workers to obtain a "no-objection" letter from their employers before changing sponsors, after the introduction of new labour and sponsorship laws earlier this year, Arabic Alittihad has reported. "No employer has the right to give such a letter to any worker, now that the new job and sponsorship rules are enforced," the ministry said.
