Regulations and rules change on a frequent and constant basis in Dubai and the UAE. This is why it is a must to work only with a reliable company that informs you regularly about any legislation changes. Clients and landlords alike have been fined heavily when they were discovered to have breached the laws on labor accommodation in Barsha, Sonapur or Al Quoz.
One regulation that gets abused most of the time is room capacity as companies add extra beds in a room in the hopes of reducing their overheads. The law states that every room utilized for the purpose of sleeping should have a living space or floor space of 3 square meters for every occupant.
