An organization's discrimination policies are a set of rules and procedures that are implemented to ensure that all applicants for employment and employees are treated equally and fairly without bias. A variety of factors, including race, gender, age, religion, and disability, among others, can constitute discrimination. Discrimination policies are essential to keeping a protected and comprehensive workplace, and they help to forestall the adverse consequences of separation, like decreased employee morale and efficiency.
The UAE Labor Law, the Saudi Labor Law, and the GCC Labor Law all govern discrimination policies in the UAE, the GCC, and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Among other protected characteristics, these laws prohibit employment discrimination based on race, gender, religion, age, or disability. Employers in the locale are expected to lay out clear arrangements and methodology for managing discrimination in the work environment, including revealing strategies and disciplinary activity.
