According to court records, the worker committed the murder after the guard stopped him from sexually harassing a female employee at their workplace.
The Abu Dhabi Appeal Court upheld an earlier ruling by a lower court, which found the Asian worker guilty of murder.
The victim's family had refused to take blood money from the killer and requested the court to give him the death penalty.
