A draft law for domestic workers is now pending approval in the UAE. The proposed law is an amendment to the 2012 draft law, which was approved by the Federal National Council but did not come into force. The new version has been approved by the UAE Cabinet and must now be passed by the Federal National Council before being signed into law by President Shaikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan.
