Employment & Labour

Luqman Legal is the exclusive member of the Employment Law Alliance in Yemen – the largest network of internationally recognised employment law attorneys in the world – www.employmentlawalliance.com
Employees in Yemen are protected from termination by Statute. The relationship between employers and employees is governed by the provisions of the Yemeni Labour Law No (5) of 1995. The law can be described as primitive compared to other jurisdictions.

The law and labour tribunals are generally very much in favour of the employee. The firm represents a number of multinationals in all their employment needs, such as, day-to-day issues, terminations, unfair dismissal claims, transfers under acquisitions and M&A’s. Most importantly, the firm advises employers and drafts the most appropriate and locally compliant employment contracts to protect them from unnecessary future claims.
