Up to Dh1 million fine for defamation at workplace in UAE
Question. I am aware that there is a monetary fine or jail term or both imposed on an individual if he is found guilty by a court in UAE of defamation published in social media. Can an employee in an organisation claim redressal from his employer for defamation at the workplace in Dubai? What should an employee do when he has been prevented from being promoted due to defamation consistently being pointed at him through memos and emails to senior management of his organisation?
