Introduction:

Human rights belongs to the general public, it doesn’t matter what
age you are or where are you from. Human Rights are one of the primary rights
that we all have because simply we are humans. Human Rights allow people to do
well, to reach to their potential and take a big part in society. It covers
many parts of any person’s daily life, from the rights to food, education,
health, and freedom of thoughts, religion and expression. (Owen, 2009)

In this literature review, I’ll be discussing about companies and
human rights in the UAE to know more about if companies how comes from abroad
are following UAE human rights policy and if not what law will be applied to
companies who misuse human rights. In addition, my main research scope and
question is: Does the UAE have well protected human rights in the companies
that work within its borders? Therefore, I come up with five different
questions to help me to find the prefect answer for my main research question
that are:

1.
Do UAE laws mention anything that relates to Human Rights?

2.
In which areas might companies in general abuse human rights?

3.
How is the working condition in the UAE are likely to be?

4.
Do you think that small business enterprises are following all
human rights law or they tolerate some of them?

5. What are the
penalties for companies that are not following UAE human rights law?

To find all these answers, I’ll use four different books and some
journal and magazine articles, and websites that I’ll found it relevant to my
topic. Also, to get more efficient answers I’ll do an electronic survey and
I’ll be sending it through social media to see people thoughts and knowledge
about this topic.

The context of the present study is to find out the real state of
human rights in the enterprising sector of the companies. As far as the job
opportunities in UAE are concerned, the province is becoming a preferable place
than the other Middle East areas due to better facilities and attractive salary
packages. Therefore, the increase in the man power coming from various nations
of the world makes this topic interesting to me to do a research over the
condition of individuals in the company according the international provisions
of the human rights.

Research aims:

This research project is subjected to a wide survey literally, based on
the real opinions of people and the experiences recorded in the books from
authors’ who have gathered enough information about the status of human rights
in UAE. The present study aims at finding out the pros and cons of the legal
and social perspectives applied to the theory of human rights and how the
industrial growth of the nation have contributed in the revision or amendment
in the human right laws. This study will focus on the small land big
enterprising sectors to explore the condition of human rights in the nation.

Literature
Review:

Please review the submitted Literature Review

Research
Plan:

o
General methodology (I am proposing a research
project that would explore the real state of human rights in the context of
small and large enterprises in UAE and also, I would like to present the status
of the laws and penalties, if any.

Paradigm:the proposed methodology for
this project would include making a quantitative research based on the
opinions, experiences and observations of various people belonging to the
diverse positions in the small and big enterprises in UAE. The project would
move on with these personal opinions along with the real time analysis with the
available documented and online sources to determine that the paradigm of the
research remains balanced and focused.Qualitative research is by definition exploratory, and it is used when we
don’t know what to expect, to define the problem or develop an approach to the
problem. It’s also used to go deeper into issues of interest and explore
nuances related to the problem at hand. Common data collection methods used in
qualitative research is focus groups, triads, dyads, in-depth interviews,
uninterrupted observation, bulletin boards, and ethnographic
participation/observation.

o
Research data: The general methods of
collecting research data are based on qualitative and quantitative ways,
however, in this project, qualitative method will be applied because as stated
above, it is exploratory and here, the project will explore the state of human
rights and their implementation as per the national laws in small and big
companies hiring great deal of foreign man power. Specifically, the qualitative
method would include interviews in person and observations of the enterprises
as much as possible. The third and final stage would include a survey done on
the social networking websites.

o
. Materials and equipment:
The project would require a laptop along with a printer to present the soft
copy for the evaluation. It will also require a broadband internet connection
to gain access to the online libraries and other electronic sources.

o
Testing procedures The Testing procedure applied
in this project is completely real as it is based on physical interviews with
people along with personal observations about the distribution of human rights
to the individuals without failure. The Research outcomes will be trustworthy
as they will be the consequences of enhancive study done within the
socio-economic infrastructure of the nation.

o
Sample size and sampling method 35 people will be selected for
fulfilling the project requirements. These people would belong to the various
classes, ranks and business enterprises overall. The method would include
asking direct questions about their knowledge of human rights at first and
then, their awareness status about it. Finally, the questionnaire would
complete with the information gathered about their personal experiences within
the organization like, whether or not they are facing any discrimination based
on their employee status, caste, creed, religion or color. Only the respondents
(r) would be counted in 35 which would imply the record of real interviews;
people who would not show interest in the interview process will not be
considered a part of the sample size.

o
The first line is -Find the population of this research put the number of people
(alain people is the population= N) we take the population by our target in the
research in my research I talk about alain people (alain populations) second line the number of the
sample size of my research is more than 30 people = n is sample. The
third line
R= respondents we will put( ?) because we don’t know how and
how many people answer the questions.[s1]

The second paragraph: Sampling method Out of the three
available sampling methods, the project would include the stratified because
there are various subpopulations that exist in the reference of UAE these days
therefore, random or convenient sampling methods would not provide the
effective state of data. An exact number of people coming from various
communities and working class is required to record their opinions about the
state of human rights and in order to maintain the exactness of the position, it
is mandatory to collect samples that belong to the real population of the
country.

Research
Questions
The research questions are as following:

Do UAE laws mention anything that relates to Human Rights?

In which areas might companies in general abuse human rights?

How the working condition in the UAE
is are likely to be?

Do you think that small business enterprises are following all
human rights law or they tolerate some of them?

What are the penalties for companies
that are not following UAE human rights law?

Research
Problems:
As this project is related to
the field research, the challenges are many to come in the next six weeks. For
example, at first, the precise focus will be on selecting the enterprises where
the state of human rights is challenged at various levels. Further, it will
important to record the response of the targeted individual whether he or she
has responded against any discrimination or the detention of human rights in
the working field. If yes, has the individual taken any legal action because
UAW labor law permits to file complaints against such issues? The major problem
in this project would likely to occur in getting the exact response of the
people selected for the interview or observation without any pressurized
circumstance.

I’ll be sending it through social media to see people thoughts and knowledge
about this topic.

Literature Review Discussion:

According to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights Article 1
states that we are all born free. We all have our own thoughts and ideas. We
should all be treated in the same way. (United Nation, n.d.)

UAE
Human Rights Laws:

In principle, since tourism is one of the greatest incomes for the
UAE after oil, UAE can’t abuse human rights because it will have a direct
affect on the huge number of tourism in the UAE. Although in practice, the UAE
involves human rights in line with Islamic law. Which is the main source of
legislation in the UAE. However, the Government of Dubai stated, “The
Constitution of the UAE stipulates that all people, irrespective of their
races, nationalities, religions and social positions, are equal before the law.
It guarantees human rights, prohibits all forms of torture and degrading
treatment and allows arrests, searches, attachments, imprisonments and
unauthorized entries only in accordance with the provisions of the law.” (Government of Dubai, n.d.)In view of the fact
that my research is about companies and human rights in the UAE so we should
have a look on employee’s rights in the UAE, it essential for any employee to
make sure that he has the knowledge of human rights in the place of work before
he start to work. In addition, Employees Rights UAE website mention that
employees have the right to:

1-
Work Free of
Discrimination:
managers cannot treat employees badly based on their race, color,
religion, age, and etc. all employees are equal.

2-
Complain About
Job Discrimination without Retaliation:
any employee who faced any problems
related to discrimination they have the right to complain about the treatment
that employee believes is illegal. The manager cannot punish employees for
reporting job discrimination because it’s their right to be protected from
retaliation.

3-
Contract
Rights:
every employment contract shows the rights and duties so employees
should know their rights from their contract.

4-
Keep Your
Medical Information Private:
your managers do not have the right to mention your medical
information with others. Therefore, employee can complain if their medical
information used in a wrong way. (Employees Rights UAE, 2011)

Moreover, UAE labor law argues that “The employment of juveniles
who’s under the age of fifteen is prohibited, and the employment of women at
night between the hours of 10 pm and 7 am is prohibited.” (UAE labor Law, n.d.) UAE labor law also
prohibited employing juveniles or women in difficult work, andworking in
holidays. According to Article 91 to 101, employer shall provide appropriate
safety measures to protect workers, employer shall display a list of
instructions to be taken to prevent fire, every employer shall provide
first-aid boxes containing medicines, every employer must ensure that the
workplace is clean and provide workers with adequate lighting and water. (Gulf Talent, 2007) Therefore, I think UAE has take human
rights on account and put rules and regulations for businesses. Because of the
requirement they put to keep employees health and safe, if companies failing to
do so they have to pay penalties as per government norms. If workers are
injured while performing any work due to negligence of the company, then UAE
government will impose fine for such negligent behavior on companies. (Human Rights and Labor, 2012)

Abusing
Human Rights:

The Amnesty International is a global movement of supporters,
members and activists in over 150 countries they campaign to end grave abuses
of human rights, they argues in one of their journals that

“Companies cause harm by directly abusing human rights, or by
colluding with others who violate human rights. Despite this potential to cause
significant harm, there are few effective mechanisms at national or
international level to prevent corporate human rights abuses or to hold
companies to account.” (Amnesty International, n.d.)

Amnesty International is also part of the United Nations and UAE is
a member of the United Nations so the Amnesty International duties is to make
sure that all companies are not abusing Human Rights in any all ways. They did
on May 2010 an annual assessment of human rights worldwide they discover 159
that abuses human rights. Amnesty International suggested the government of the
countries that are members of United Nations should place justice first in the
country. (Haerens, 2011)In addition to that UAE is trying to
protect Human Rights through different things. For example, the UAE government
published a company called Protection of consumer rights here where consumer
can refer if there are unreasonable prices or prohibited trade practices in the
market. And employees can also protect themselves through referring to either
court or Ministry of Labor to take a legal action.

Therefore, companies abuses human rights in various things for
instances unfair labor wages, working for more than 8 hours, unsafe building
conditions, and child labor. I personally think that companies who abuse human
rights need to pay a huge amount of fines that’s because some of the companies
are thinking just for their own profit, so they will try to reduce the cost of
production as much as they can. Although companies have knowledge that abusing
human rights might affect their business, so they will try their best to keep
it hidden from the publicity.

Working
Conditions In The UAE:

Working in the UAE is a dream of so many expats. The InterNations
is the first International online community for people who work abroad, they
states in one of their articles that “UAE labor law clearly states the duties
and responsibilities of employers and employees including details on holidays,
worker’s compensation and employment contract.” According to this Law, UAE
nationals have the right to work. Therefore, any available position in any
company should first if there is an Emirati who would like to apply to this
job, otherwise if there is no Emirati they will welcome foreign residents to
apply for this job. (InterNations, n.d.) In another company website called Just
Landed they are helping people who thinks to move to another country they
argues that one of the major attractions this of working in the UAE because
there is no personal taxations, and the net income is usually greater than the
western countries. In addition to that people will be paid their basic salary,
car allowance, housing allowance, medical cover, education of children, air
tickets for home visits, and they will be paid for end-of-contract bonus its
required by law and its another way to say thank you for working in this place.
(Just Landed, n.d.) These laws will be applies to all
companies private or not in the UAE.

Are Small
Business Enterprises Following Law:

A lot of people locals or expats they explore the opportunity to
start their own small business in the UAE. For example, small restaurants,
travel agencies, private schools, job agencies, childcare facilities, and more.
Therefore, UAE labor law force companies to follow the law because according to
Article 3 of the law “The law applies to all staff and employees working in the
UAE, whether UAE nationals or expatriates.” (UAE labor Law, n.d.) However, Ahmad
stated that UAE has free zones where is not governed by UAE labor law such as
Jebel Ali free zone and the Dubai airport free zones (Ahmad, 2012)

No one can have their human rights completely taken away but there
are some human rights can be limited. For example, you can’t support someone
who writes about encouraging murder against an ethnic group, people freedom of
expression may be limited to protect safety of others. For example, in the UAE
lobby is unaccepted. Lastly, in my opinion and after all research I have done
under this topic, I think that small business enterprises are forced to follow
and apply Human Rights but in some cases companies in the UAE might withhold
employees salary the employer sometimes can solve it between themselves
(employer and employees) and if employee didn’t agree on that he can refer to
the court.

Penalties
For Not Following Laws:

In my opinion, business enterprises who are not following the UAE
law in all prospective will effect the whole community, because if for example
a company sharply increase the selling price it will effect the buyer or if
companies are not giving their employees their rights it will effect employee
lifestyle. UAE is respecting human and labor rights because they are member of
the International Labor Organization, the Arab Labor Organization and other
labor-focused multi-lateral organizations.
(UAE Embassy, 2012) However, the UAE is a member of the
United Nations Human Rights Council, the UN human rights appoint John Gerard
Ruggie to modest task of clarifying the main issues. John had developed his
now-famous “Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights” this principle
provide a road map to ensure that human rights are applied globally within the
United Nations members. To give a clear idea of Guiding principles is basically
to protect human rights against abuses by third party, and businesses
enterprises should be responsible of respecting their employee’s rights. (Ruggie, 2013)And because UAE is member
of United Nations they have to follow the same rules and regulations to the
country.

UAE always legally protects human rights. In addition to thatUAE
Embassy claims, “There has been a record increase in court cases against
employers who withhold salaries and refuses to issue documents that enable people
to change their jobs” (UAE Embassy, 2012) adding on to that The Ministry of Labor
imposes penalties on the businesses violating the human rights. According to
the UAE draft labor law report published in 2006, UAE have shown many cases of
taking advantage of domestic workers along with the expatriate such as they
were abused, worked without payment, worked for long hours and compelled stay
at workplace.(Human Rights Watch, 2012)

Lastly, I think applying huge fines to companies who are not
following the law will prevent them for breaking any rules.

Summary:

Human rights include equality, rule of law, liberty, freedom of
movement, freedom of opinion, freedom of speech, and freedom of religion.We are
all born free and equal.

United Arab Emirate has protected Human Rights by developing laws
that apply for both big or small businesses enterprises. They can’t ignore
Human Rights because they have a huge number of expatriates who serve this
country for years. Although, some companies can abuses human rights without UAE
government know so it’s up to the employee. For example, if an employer didn’t
pay salary for an employee for 3 months he has the decision to refer to the
court or no.

After all research that I have done, I can conclude that I
personally think that UAE has well protected human rights in companies that
work within is borders. However, in my next stage of this research I’ll use an
electronic survey to be send through social media so I can know what people
think and know about what happening in the UAE.
