In our article last month (click here), we considered the proposed new regulations and amendments to the DIFC Employment Law regarding the implementation of the DIFC Employee Workplace Savings Plan (DEWS Plan). The DEWS Plan was originally due to come into effect on 1 January 2020, but that date has now been pushed back by one month to 1 February 2020. We are watching these developments closely and look forward to publication of the finalised regulations and amended law.
