Ma­ter­nity law re­view

7 Days in Dubai - - NEWS -

Poke­mon Go play­ers have been re­minded they could be break­ing the law by wandering into res­i­den­tial gar­dens or gov­ern­ment build­ings. Abu Dhabi Po­lice also re­minded users that the hugely pop­u­lar game col­lects data, which it said some may not re­alise. Ma­jor Gen­eral Amir Al Muhairi, Di­rec­tor Gen­eral of Po­lice Op­er­a­tions, said: “The play­ers, es­pe­cially young­sters, can go too far chasing Poke­mon, un­aware of their sur­round­ings. “They can eas­ily en­ter pri­vate res­i­dences, gov­ern­ment in­stal­la­tions or en­ter the streets as they play the game.” Al Muhairi added that “this will sub­ject them to le­gal li­a­bil­i­ties”. Po­lice had ear­lier urged users to be mind­ful of their sur­round­ings while star­ing at their screens, par­tic­u­larly when cross­ing the road. Ma­ter­nity laws are to be ex­am­ined by a com­mit­tee tasked with look­ing at cre­at­ing a more sup­port­ive work en­vi­ron­ment for women. News agency WAM re­ported that the UAE Gen­der Bal­ance Coun­cil body will look at in­tro­duc­tion of a ‘Gen­der Bal­ance Index’ to close the gen­der gap be­tween men and women. WAM re­ported: “The UAE Gen­der Bal­ance Coun­cil also dis­cussed... in­creas­ing the per­cent­age of women par­tic­i­pat­ing in the work en­vi­ron­ment through the in­tro­duc­tion of part­time shifts in de­part­ments and com­pa­nies.”
