On 25 July 2023, Oman announced a new labour law for workers in the private sector (Royal Decree 53/2023), repealing the Royal Decree 35/2003 as amended (the Old Labour Law) and introducing new regulations on labour strikes, permission for migrant workers involved in labour disputes to remain in the country, and other significant changes. The new law follows a series of reforms made this year, including the implementation of the Wage Protection System, a new social security law and the rollout of a mandatory Health Insurance Scheme.

The exclusive webinar on Oman’s New Labour Law provided a comprehensive overview of the new Labour law and its implications for employers and employees. Led by industry experts, this informative session offered key topics to help webinar attendees navigate the updated regulations and ensure compliance within the organization.

This webinar was a success, with over +230 Webinar attendees watching the live session, which was hosted on The Stage, an online Knowledge-Sharing Platform, driven by businessgateways.

We would like to thank ALC Lawyers & Counsels for helping us in hosting this successful orientation webinar on Oman’s New Labour Law to focus on some of the key changes introduced.
