How to avoid 6 month labour ban in Dubai UAE?

Employees who have been slapped with a six-month labour ban for breaking their contracts before the expiry of two years can work for a new company, provided they hold at least a high school diploma and have been offered a good position and salary by the new company, employers were told by the Ministry of Labour .

To lift the 6 month labour ban, an employee should have been offered a minimum salary of 

-AED 5,000 for high school graduates,

-AED 7,000 for diploma holders and

-AED 12,000 for bachelor’s degree holders. (This salary must be mentioned in the labour contract.)

-Obtain No Objection Certificate from current employer.

No fee will be imposed for lifting the labour ban when these conditions are met, Ali Al Shehi, Senior Administrator at the ministry, said in a seminar held to inform employers about their rights and duties as well as recent ministerial decisions.

We are still imposing the six-month labour ban on employees who quit their jobs before completing two years of service, but the ban can be lifted if the new employer offers the candidate a good position and an appropriate salary,” he said.

The new employer needs to submit the employee’s educational qualification certificates, which does not need to be attested at this stage. It will be scanned and entered into the Tas’heel system, and a new labour permit will be issued accordingly.

Al Shehi told employers that as of January 2012, company categories will have a different scale when it comes to labour permit applications.

When a new company is registered, it will be charged AED 1,500 for each of the first four work permits to be issued to the company, which corresponds with category B2,” he said.

Afterwards, the company can move up or down categories B1, B2 or B3, or C depending on its activity, the number of employees it hires, their qualifications and diversification in the nationalities of workers.

Companies in B1 category pay AED 600 per work permit, while B2 companies pay AED 1,500 and B3 companies pay AED 2,000 for each permit.

Diversification by Companies

This step aims to encourage diversification and hiring employees from various nationalities, so companies who hire workers from one nationality will not be upgraded, while those that hire from more nationalities will move up to categories B3, B2 and so on,” Al Shehi said, adding that companies will also upgrade their categories by hiring skilled workers.

He advised people who want to start new companies to check their sponsor’s record at the Department of Economic Development (DED) to ensure that their record is clear and they have no other companies facing problems, which will hinder their application.

The sponsor of a company has to clear any outstanding dues or labour issues before he can sponsor another one, so we advise those who want to open a new business to look for a sponsor who has no other companies registered under his name,” Al Shehi said.

UPDATE on Labour ban from Gulfnews.com:

People working in the UAE can still be banned for up to a year if they try to change jobs, a Ministry of Labour official has said.

The ban can be implemented even when an employee quits his or her job after two years of service.

Labour Ban can be lifted, however, if the new employer offers the candidate a better position than the existing one and a salary that suits the person’s qualification, according to a scale set by the ministry, an official told Gulf News. (Read first paragraph)

There are still questions about the circumstances in which an employment ban can be enforced when a resident decides to quit their job with a view to securing employment with a new company, but officials say there are exceptions which allow bans to be lifted.

The rules and regulations that stipulate when a ban can be imposed and enforced depend on a number of legal thresholds.

Traditionally, the Ministry of Labour can automatically impose a ban when an employer terminates an unlimited labour contract before completing one year of service.

As a general rule, a labour ban is still “imposed on all expatriate employees in the UAE who are working in the private sector when they want to change from one employer to another if they left the current employer without having completed a minimum of two years service,” a ministry of labour official said. “An employment ban, labour ban, work permit ban are used for the same thing which means one will not be allowed to perform any kind of work in the UAE for a certain period of time and these are imposed for six months, one year, or there could be life ban.”

The official said a one-year ban may be imposed at the request of a sponsor if a worker resigns before the completion of a limited period contract.

A permanent ban could also be given to absconding employees or those who violate the labour law.

But there are exceptions to the rules: How to avoid Labour Ban?

Residents can move to another company if the employee remains under the same UAE sponsor or if the employee has a higher level of education to fulfil a position that is needed within the country.

“Employees who have been slapped with a six-month labour ban for breaking their contracts before the expiry of two years can work for a new company, provided they hold at least a high school diploma and have been offered a good position and salary by the new company.”

He said employees working in the UAE who receive a six-month labour ban for breaking an employment contract within two years can have the ban lifted if the employee is changing job for the companies under the same sponsor.

–If the employee has a NOC (No Objection Certificate) from the current sponsor then he or she will be able to move to another company under a different sponsor, the official said.

–The minimum salary in a new position is Dh5,000 for high school diploma holders, Dh7,000 for post-secondary school diploma holders, and Dh12,000 for Bachelor degree holders.

No fee will be imposed for lifting the labour ban when these conditions are met, according to a senior administrator at the ministry.

“We are still imposing the six-month labour ban on employees who quit their jobs before completing two years of service, but the ban can be lifted if the new employer offers the candidate a higher position and a salary equal or above the salary set by the minister against his or her qualifications,” he said.

The ministry said that if the employee has violated the contract in any way, then irrespective of resignation or termination, a ban can be enforced.

Women sponsored by family: Do they have labour ban?

A six-month ban imposed by the Ministry of Labour on people who fail to complete the period of employment stipulated under labour rules also applies to working women sponsored by their family members.(Father or Husband)

An official from the Ministry said women seeking to change their jobs or leave work before completing the contractual obligation of two years with their employer would automatically attract the labour ban.

The official said the labour ban would take effect the moment a woman under the sponsorship of her husband or father cancels her labour card.

He said the mandatory six-month labour ban applies to both men and women, even if individuals are sponsored by family members, and is calculated from the date an employee’s labour card is cancelled at the Ministry of Labour.

“This is an administrative ban, meaning that a block is inserted into the ministry’s computer system preventing an application for labour approval being processed against [the] banned person’s name and passport number,” he said.

The ban cannot be lifted by paying a fine.

Complaints

Some workers have complained that the Ministry of Labour is still seeking approval from sponsors if they wish to change their jobs after two years.

Those affected point to the Ministry’s earlier reforms to the labour law which did away with the need for a sponsor’s approval for employees who have been with their sponsors for two continuous years. The workers complained that they were being banned for one year for failing to secure such approval.

The labour rules, which were implemented in 2011 by the Ministry of Labour, allowed workers to switch jobs at the end of their employment contracts without the need for a no-objection certificate.

But a legal consultant at the Ministry of Labour clarified the rules and said expatriate workers would still receive a one-year ban if they failed to get their sponsor’s consent before changing jobs.

“No one is allowed to switch jobs even if they complete many years in their [current job], without the consent of their sponsor,” he said.

He also said the new law allows workers to change employment in cases such as when the company employing them has closed down and no longer exists.

“But those workers will be given one-year ban if they do not file a complaint at the Ministry in less than two months after the [closure] of their company.”

        Dear Deepak,

        I have come to UAE just a week back on employment visa but the job profile is not the same as discussed in interview. So I want to go back to my home country and join my previous company. I haven’t signed any labor contract as yet. I have entered in UAE on entry permit.
        I want o know what type of bans will be applicable if I will exit the country. Will there be life time ban? or 1 year or 6 moths ban?
        I would appreciate your quick reply.

            Thanks for your reply, need some more clarification . If I will send resignation by mail to the manager and will not serve the notice and will leave the country immediately, as I haven’t signed any contract yet.

            then can they declare me as absconding and ban me for life.
            if so is there any way to lift this ban. thanks for your reply.

    Hi Deepak,
    I’m currently working for a company in Ajman(completed 8 months) and plan to switch for a new job. I discussed about this with my Manager but she said i will have an automatic 6 months ban. Based on this i have 2 questions and i would really appreciate if you could clear it out.
    1) Will i get a ban if i join a FreeZone Company?
    2) Will i get a ban if i join a Hotel? Coz one of my colleague mentioned that Hotels provide Immigration Visa so i wont be getting a ban if i land a job in a Hotel.

    Awaiting your kind response. Thanks in advance.

      if you join a company under MOL you will have 6 month labour ban.
      1. No ban if you join free zone company.
      2. I don’t think under hotels you will have ban. But better to check directly with authorities.

    Dear Sir,
    Good Day!
    I am Nnada from India who sending this mail.
    I got your website detail through my friend regarding the visa details.I will explain you my situation and please advice me.
    I was worked in Dubai on 1998-2003 and 2011-2013.
    Then last month I got a opportunity in Iraq.The companies head office in Dubai.They gave me two visas.That is one is for Dubai and another for Iraq.The dubai visa was Tourist visa Issued from 25/10/2014 to 23/12/2014.I traveled on 07/11/2014 to Dubai.I got down in Terminal 1 and went inside the city and went to Terminal 2 to go to Iraq.In that same day itself I was entered and exit from Dubai.Then I went to Iraq and came to India Last month.Now I got a offer in Dubai.
    Now I am having two issues.
    I got an offer from my friend, and he started the visa process last week.He said that he will get visit visa first first.I said OK.Mean time I got another offer from another company with good salary.So I prefer to go in this offer.I was tried to convince my friend to stop his visa , but he refused to leave me to join in that company.Then I didn’t speak more with him, because he is my friend.
    At same time I was informed frankly to the new company what was happened.
    They said we will get visa.Yesterday they had applied for my visa.
    At same time I got the call from my friend that his company got the message when they tried to get visa, that I am having visa in my name.Then I was replied to him that last I went to Dubai in Tourist visa.That too I entered on 7th nov and exit on same day.I sent him the visa copy, entry and exit page.
    So please clear me about this.
    1.I was traveled to Dubai last in Tourist visa and left on 7th november,so that will affect for this two people?
    2.At same time two people are applying for me visa, both can get the visa?
    3.If so can I choose the company and travel in that visa?
    Kindly advice me.
    With lots of thanks,
    Nanda

    Hi,
    What if I have a better offer (salary) from other company and I want to change my job in the same position?
    I do hold a bachelor’s degree, but since my salary is around 5000-6000 can i provide my high school certificate to avoid the ban?

    In my contract it says that either party can terminate the contract with a week advance notice in probation period which is 6 months, But it also says that If I (an employee) wish to leave the company in one year I’ll have to bear the costs of visa etc. My question is, can i terminate my contract within that probation period and avoid paying costs and getting 6 months ban?

    Hi Deepak

    i am working for a Dubai based free zone company(TE-COM).I was working in Oman for 1.8 years and have Oman- IT Manager visa through same company.

    Now i am back in UAE on visit visa based on Oman IT Manager visa.My company has taken 2 months to apply for my UAE visa.So i went back and forth to say in UAE.

    They have applied now and its with immigration. No medical or visa stamping has taken place.I have a better offer from Abu Dhabi based multinational.

    Will i get a ban? Salary is 16000 plus and i am bachelors degree holder.Also is it breach of contract? Since i was not in UAE and have not signed a UAE contract(i did sign Terms of Engagement…it had no arabic letters…not sure whats a UAE contract for free zone) so i think i will not get banned and its not breach of contract.

    I would appreciate a detailed answer.

    I would like to ask if it’s possible to exit in Qatar going to European countries even if my UAE visa is not cancelled? My current employer in UAE would not grant me a short notice of resignation since my new sponsor in UK expected me to join at earlier dates. What would be the consequence if I try to slip UAE and take Qatar in going to Europe?

    I’ve been working for a Construction Company in Dubai for 11 months as a Document Controller. However, my residence visa was only accomplished in November 2014.
    Can I accept an offer to me of AED 6,000.00 as an HR Executive by another private company without having a ban? If no, what are my options in order to secure this job or other jobs with another company at this stage?
    I am a Bachelor’s degree holder and currently having a salary of AED 5,000.00. Thank you.

    Thank you.

    I am working in freezone company in ras al khaima as Accountant from 16-03-2014 till now and recently i got a good offer in dubai non-freezone company. So i decided to resign but my current employers not in the country and office staff is not accepting my resignation.

    i put notice date 27-12-2014 in my resignation letter prepared on 16-12-2014 and already sent mails to Manager and General Manager but no one is replying me back. No one is talking to me and they just want to delay the process.I have only 3 weeks within i have to finish my cancellation process.

    I will be very thankful to you if you guide me .

    I will be looking for your response.

    Dear Deepak,

    I have a few queries and I am hoping that you will enlighten me.
    This is the scenario:
    I’ve been working in the company for 2 mos working as junior accountant but
    as stated in the entry permit, my position is archives clerk with
    AED3,000 salary.
    I already exit to Oman and enter on new employment visa last Nov 25, 2014.
    But until now I’m still waiting for the typing of medical and emirates ID.
    My entry permit is valid until 18-Jan-2015.
    I asked my boss for the processing of medical & emirates id but they said that
    we don’t have money yet.
    And just now, my boss told me that they are planning to close the company.
    My questions are:
    * I want now to resign so I will not be left hanging, will there be a ban?
    * If I resign, what are the things that I should do to find a new job
    so I will not have a problem?

      You will have to exit prior to your entry permit being expired.

    Dear Deepak sir,
    I am a pharmacist working in duabi. my contract is unlimited .I joined the company on 22nd December 2013. On December 22nd 2014 i will complete 1 year. In the month of June,July,August,September,October and November i had worked overtime as 3hr,3hr,1.30hr,1.30hr,1.30hr and 1.30hr respectively. But my owner didnt pay the overtime.My salary is 5000.Now he hired a new employee who is willing to work less salary and more time than me. Now he is forcing me to sign in cancellation paper without giving my November and December salary. On 15th December on wards he is not allowing me to enter in to the work place. He is also forcing me to accept the termination letter before completing the 1 year as i am entitled to 1 month leave salary if compete 1 year successfully. I had registered compliant against him in MOL. After that i went to the work place asusual. On 15th December 2014 he came with police and arrested me for no reason. Police inspcetor told me dont enter to pharmacy. And forced me to put sign in paper which was written in Arabic. I dont know how to read and write arabic. Even though i asked the copy the police inspector didnt give the same. Now am out of the pharmacy.If i go to work place he will call the police.Still i didnt receive termination letter and also not received any message from MOL regarding the councelling date. If am continuously absent for 7 days he can terminate me without any reason right?
    What should i do?

They kept my passport with them, and told me to find a new job. Once I get the new job, they have told me to bring the offer letter and then they will cancel my visa.
    My question is will I get a ban and will there be a problem with my future company in accepting me. What am I supposed do?

    1) Do I have to pay any compensation to the company for leaving before completion of 3 years?

    2) I have served my one month notice however they want me to stay longer but I can’t. Can the company impose any ban on me?

    3) Will I be allowed to work in a LLC?

    Look forward to your reply.

    Hi Deepak,

    I have a few queries, I hope you can help me out cause the different articles and people I’ve talked with have contradicting ideas;

    1. I just got back from my exit last Dec3, and im still under an Entry Permit (e-visa), as far as I understand, my company has 60 days to process this into an employment visa. Unfortunately, circumstances forces me to quit my job, and I have spent only a month with them. Given the necessary papers which are not yet given to me, can I still quit my job without worrying of a ban?

        Hi Deepak,

        Sorry I have a follow-up question.
        I haven’t received any offer letter yet or any form of contract to sign specifying my employment with the company. Plus, I only hold an entry permit. I haven’t undergone medical and processing of Emirates ID.
        Will this still incur a ban?

        If my company cancels my existing entry permit (dated dec 02, 2014 as its starting date), what step should I do to NOT leave UAE? Because as far as I understand, if my Entry Permit’s cancelled, I wouldn’t have any existing Visa. Is this correct?

        Reading other blog posts here I would like to know which of these options will save me from having a ban;

        Option 1: Apply in a freezone company
        Option 2: Apply for a semi-government or government company
        Option 3: Get NOC from my company

        Thank you very much for your response.

            If that’s the case, let’s say my company now in Abu Dhabi proceeds in giving me the employment visa, and I choose to resign after a month and transfer to a freezone company in Dubai with a salary of let’s say, 4k. Will this still incur a ban for me?

            Thank you. I’m almost complete in fitting all the puzzles in my mind on these regulations.

    I have a contract with my company for two years and it is clearly mentioned that I would not be able to work with any other competitor in UAE.

    I will be resigning from the company by serving 45days notice period with out salary or by paying 45days salary as per the company policy.

    Could you please help me with my below concerns;

    1) I am aware that I will get a ban of 6 Months as per the UAE law. However, is it possible for my company to add the ban period more than 6months?

    2) As I did not complete the Two year contract and am with a limited visa, Is there any chance where my company can legally stop working in any other company in UAE

I requested employer to cancel my visa and give NOC. I just want to confirm if I have to face 6 months automatic ban? Employer is saying he is in financial crisis and not in a situation to give salary. How I can lift 6 months automatic ban? Also, employer is saying he can come to labor and tell he does nt have any objection in lifting my ban. Is it possible? Please give a quick reply.

    Dear Deepak, I resigned from my company from completion of probation period. I gave them resign contain on one month notification but next day they terminated me and mentioned in termination letter about my resignation that because you resigned before completion of my probation period that was why they terminated me and they stopped my nov salary even 5 days of december salary because in contract they mentioned that if i resigned before completion of probation period i would have to afford my visa fees therefore they stopped or blocked my outstanding dues. I resigned because they forced me to work 11 or 12 hours mostly without overtime pay and i work 6 days in week without overtime. They paid my October salary mid of month while i supposed to be paid on 1st week. Now they are threading me that if i approach to labour office company will imposed life time ban on me. Kindly guide me in this matter

    I am planning to leave my current company upon reaching 6 months. I am a bachelor’s degree holder. If I transfer to an admin job in a freezone or a semi-government company with a salary that is 6k (higher than my current salary now), will I still get a ban?

    Thanks.

    My name is Noel, I resigned from my Free Zone company. My new company is a private LLC which they managed to get the MOL approval prior to the cancellation of my previous visa. I can view now my labour card information through MOL website. My new employment visa application has not been processed yet due to delayed visa cancellation from my Free Zone company which they managed to cancel last 1st of December. I did not submit yet my original cancellation paper. I’m planning to quit as we need to work extra long hours everyday due to customers demands without overtime pay. Do I have an automatic ban from labour? Kindly advise.

    Hello Deepak,

    My name is Mary. This is my 6th month of working with my company in Sharjah. I am having problem with my health because the work I do is too hard for a lady and my manager said he cannot do anything about it. I work as an housekeeper in a hotel. Everyday I sleep in pains. I am a college graduate of Business Administration and I have over 5 years work experience in general office procedure in my country. I really desire to look for and get another job in my field of work experience and which will suit my qualification. My question is, how can I avoid the labour ban when I get offer from another company? Please advise me.

    Thank you.

      Dear Deepak,

      I’ve read all the complaints and your advices and so I believe you will also give me clarifications with our long problems with my husbands labor ban. My husband resigned in his job as a Facility manager and lasted only 18 months with the company. Since the company do not want to pay his remamining monthly salary, my husband brought it to court and just few days ago, he got the court rulling in favor of him.

      Now, the problem is that…he found and been hired in a new company with same job, unfortunately the previous company banned him for 6 months and so the new company cant proceed in processing his new working visa. Since he won the case against his previous company, Is it not, automatically if not enough to lift a banned? What if he dont have any diploma but have good long track records of working certificates?

      Please advice us, we’ve consulted lots of people and they always advised that it is easy to lift the ban, but that is not what’s happening since until now, his visa is still on process…what does it mean, we really dont know what to expect?

    Hi Deepak,

    I have completed 3 years (1st visa) in the company under unlimited contract. currently my visa has been renewed for the 2nd time which is on-going.

    I have decided to resign my job due to unhealthy working environment by submtting 1 month notice of resignation.

    I’m possessing MBA Degree and drawing a salary of 20k p.m. But my current employer is verbally stating me that they will go with a request to MOL to impose 1year for joining in the competitor’s companies – same nature of business.

    New employer is ready to offer the same position and equal salary in his company. Kindly give your friendly advice and usual support for me to take a suitable decision and proceed ahead.

What are the chances of my current employer putting a One year labour ban on me. If at all they put a one year labour ban, can anything be done to lift the same so that i can work for the new company?

    Kindly answer so that i can plan things accordingly.

      2. You will need to cancel the visa, exit. Make sure you do not have labour ban. In that case get NOC.
      You will face ban otherwise.

    Hi Deepak! I just got my employment visa cancelled last Oct 2, 2014 since I found better offer. I joined my new company last Oct 1 and they are processing my visa now. They already had my employment visa with them and I did the medicals as well. But, I just got a new job offer from an airline as a cabin crew(better salary, ofcourse) which I applied long time ago. I am willing to pay my visa cost. Is it possible? I still didnt get my passport stamped with the residence permit.

      Maria,
      If your airline is a government related airline, you will have no ban.
      The visa costs depends on company if it is written in the contract.
      If your passport is not stamped, immediately inform the company to stop the process of stamping.

      If your labour approval is not processed, there will be no problem.
      however, for your profession, there will be no ban.
      There are no fines.

    Hi Deepak,

    The answers to the comments are very much helpful. Thank You!

    Here is my concern, expecting an answer for the same too.I had cancelled my visa of archive clerk on last week after completing 10 months period out of 3 year unlimited contract, my company was ready to issue an NOC too. Now I have an offer of 8k. I am a 3 year diploma holder as well as a degree holder in civil engineering trade. As per my understandings for avoiding the ban I need to go further with diploma certificate, hence could you please suggest me some professions for the visa to be applied? or how can I check the visa designations for a diploma holder? My exact designation is Estimation Engineer.

        The issue got solved by Tasheel.

        The issue was related to the profession that we have to show in the visa( while we are applying for the visa) or exactly I was in a need to know what all designations allotted for a diploma holder to have.

            Hi Nouel,

            If all the details are same as what I was explained, Then you can consult Tasheel on 800665 or go there directly for getting things cleared. Above all, your employer’s representative (PRO) can do things more effectively (literally, if the new company needs you, then there is no ban).Sometimes you have to choose the designation suggested by them at least for the ban period. After that your company can change your visa designation with respect to your qualification.

    I am currently working in a government college in Hatta as a cleaner and also supervising it,we are 5 in number and none has been paid. Please I want to resign because my family back home is on fire since I cant be able to send them money monthly as they expected. I don’t want to work with the company anymore..i know that my labor id has been out and they don’t want to give me since then. The manager told me the last time she can not to move out from the school because police will arrest me..Here in Hatta there is no labor office only police station and emirate id office.

    Please tell me what to do to resign and get this company off my neck.They have also refused to give me a copy of my agreement document. I will be grateful to read you reply.

    Right now we have situation here in my new company. for the last months we have delayed of salary. I already complain to the MOL but nothings happens. I talked to the owner of the bussiness and he told me that he is willing to give NOC to us. I applied to other companies but they told me that they cannot procees my visa because I have automatically have a ban in the labour. As of today we are delayed for 3 months salary. I thought that if my sponsor can give me NOC we can transfer already. Is ther a new rule that we cannot transfer our sponsorship? I’m in unlimited Visa and finishe my 1 year and 1 month in this company. Since were always delayed of salary I need to transfer to other company that can provide my salary on time.
    Please I need your advice. Thank you.

    This is my first time in UAE. I got a job (Mechanical Engineer) from a private company in Abu Dhabi and I received my Entry Permit for Work (E Visa) from the same company. I did not use this Entry Permit to enter UAE as I am still staying in UAE in my visit visa. Now I am planning to change company. So will I get a ban if I cancel this Entry permit before using it (before entering UAE using this)??

    Hi,

    I would like to clarify some matter, I have a signed an offer letter from a company and they have already got a pre approval for work permit. I got a better offer and requested the first company to cancel my employment. I am still in Dubai on a tourist visa, the PRO of the first company told me that I have to exit and send them the exit stamp, then only they can cancel the pre approval for work permit and the employment visa (they said that they can only take this visa from DNRD if I send them the exit stamp. Is this the correct procedure? And also they are asking me to pay them for the expenses. Will I get a ban when they cancel my unutilized employment visa / entry permit?

    Thank you in advance.

      Are you talking about Labour Approval? There is nothing called pre-approval for work permit. Please clarify this.
      Once labour approval is obtained, you may have automatic ban.
      Have you signed the contract already that you will bear expenses?

    Hi Deepak,

    I am working on an Unlimited Contract since March 2013. So it is almost 20 months now. And as per the contract it is only 30 days notice. I put my resignation from my official email ID on 8th Oct 2014, gave a hardcopy to the manager too. Manager first verbally agreed to leave me but after 2 days he changed his words and started harrasing me. He spoke like threatening me and said if I go to labor, they will not come for first 2 sitting and will not pay the money. He said “telling the labor office people that company doesnt have money to pay the employee now will be enough to put pressure on the employee and get the NoDue Certificate signed”. Director replied to my email saying he cannot accept my resignation and that hey will have financial loss if I go so I need to wait for several months etc. Manager is now creating false stories and wasting time. The hardcopy of my resignation is not signed. I have an Engineer Visa. Ban is not a problem as I need to go back to India as soon as possible. I contacted MOL and they asked me to give 30 days notice and come there. What do you suggest in this?

They had decided not to continue the visa processing and there is nothing being stamp in my passport. I start looking for job and found a higher position but less than the salary. Now, they had process the cancellation but they took time. My new company was waiting for me to complete all requirements.

    Once the cancellation is dome do i still have days to stay at dubai, how may days?

    Why they took long to cancellation.

    Is the cancellation certificate from immigration and labour from the current employer is enough to send to my new employer?

    Kindly advice.

      You may stay upto 29 days in UAE as grace period after which you will accrue fine of around AED25 per day.
      Cancellation should not take long, max 2 days.
      Yes, new employer might request cancellation certificate for labour card and visa cancellation as in passport.

      If yo get a job at semi government organisation, you will not have labour ban as labour approval is not required for semi government or government organisations.

          There is nothing called lifting a ban.

    My brother has filed a case against his company for fake absconding case lodged by his company. Labour department gave a date for attending the case yesterday (22 – October 2014) but the company did not attend the labour department. So, Labour department has given another date in November. I am fearing about that the company might not come to labour department second time also.

    I want to know that how many times the labour department could postpone the date for the company to attend the case?

    if the company don`t come for the second time, what we have to do?

    if the company did not come to labour department, how my brother can reimburse his expenses incurred during this period?

    Hope to get your swift reply in this regards.

    With Regards

      If you are joining a freezone company from MOL company, there will be no labour ban.
      But since yours is a limited contract, i think you will have a 1 year ban. Please check with your PRO.
      NOC is not required. However, better to take it.

        Is the 1 year ban automatic or imposed by the employer?
        If the employer is okay with me leaving and said no ban or charges will issued, how can i make sure he won’t do this officially?
        I dont want to quit and then employer tries to impose 1 year ban and charges. So how i can get the official approval of the resignation by my employer?

    Hi Mr. Deepak,

    I just want to ask if my ban will be lifted with my current opportunity offered by a new company.? The story goes this way..

    I have completed my one year in my current company last Sept. 2014 but I am a limited 2 year contract holder. I am an accountant in my current job receiving 3ooo aed per month. However, stated in my contract is ARCHIVES CLERK and only 1,500 aed is my salary and they didn’t ask me my authenticated documents (e.g Diploma, Certification, etc.). Now, I have an offer from a new company with the position of Junior Accountant having the salary of 5,000 and above. The new company is asking me to secure NOC for them to hire me and give me a new visa which I know my current company will not give since I am limited and maybe they will ban me too. Now, based on the research I have done regarding the labor code, if my current company will impose labor ban to me it will be lifted by the salary offered by the new company right? And as per the position, they are offering me a higher position requiring an authenticated documents. I want to know if my knowledge regarding this labor rules is correct so that I can decide whether to continue my resignation and join the new company or stay with my current. Practically, I want to join the new one since it will give me higher salary and better experience.
    I am hoping for your response Mr. Deepak. Thank you and more power

    If I am in Dubai Visa (Unlimited contract), and you resign during your probation period will I get ban? My friend told me that if I resign during my probation period I will not be banned.

    I started working on the company on April 20, 2014 and in probation period for 6 months, however I only receive my Visa on June 2 2014. I started working without visa. Which is counted? Is it the day that I start or when my residence visa got stamped?

    I got an offer and its my dream job so I really want it… Their trade license is in Fujairah and said that its under freezone. May i know what will be the possible issues that I might face?

    Thank you

      You will face ban no matter whether you are under probation or not.
      The day your labour contract is approved and you joined the company, is considered the first day.
      However, since you are moving to a Freezone, you will not face such issues.

    Hi Deepak. I am currently working in a school and I am on my second month only . I haven’t signed a contract from the ministry of labor when I decided to resign. As per the HR of the school where I work in, i have to render 2 months notice inorder not to be banned and not to pay anything. So I submitted my resignation today with effectivity until the end of the first term so as to avoid the hassles. But today. the contract from the labor came and I was told if I want to resign, I resign now. Also the HR said the principal does not want me anymore because she told the principal of my plan to resign but I haven’t filled up any release form from the school and my resignation letter is still with me and I haven’t spoken yet to the principal. I was told that my employment visa will expire this coming Sunday October 12th so if I want to resign, they refuse to let me serve the 2 months notice. they want me to immediately resign. Since I do not want the ban, I signed the contract today because the PRO said after 6 months time I will not be banned. I feel like I was left with no choice. I feel really bad because I wasn’t given the chance to be clarified with how this contract go. I do not want to be banned. My reason for resigning is that I cannot cope with the stress and my health is deteriorating . plus the fact that the school did not provide any insurances and not even annual tickets. Please help me on this. I am so confused.

      better to ask your new employer for a better position or you may face 6 month ban.
      If you have NOC, then there is no problem.
      Please also consult MOL.

    Hi Sir,

    This is Saravana Kumar from Al-Ain. I had worked for 2.5 years as a Project Engineer in the Al-Ain based manufacturing company. I sent a mail with resignation letter by 30th August 2014 and it also it was verbally accepted by my company. I was worked until 30th September 2014.

    My visa is Mechanical Engineer Visa.

    My Queries are listed as follows,

    1. What are all the benefits will i get from my company ie. Grautity, Air Ticket etc)?
    2. My company is insisting me to pay my last Visa Expense – Should i need to pay as per UAE law?
    3. How long i can stay in UAE after visa cancellation?

    Awaiting for your reply.

    Thanks.

      Saravana,
      1. You would receive gratuity as per labour law. Unutilised airtickets also, if you are eligible. Leave salary.
      2. Companies can not insist on recovering visa costs.
      3. You have 28-30 days after cancellation.

          If you have completed 3 years under unlimited contract, you will have no ban. NOC is required.
          However, your situation is peculiar since you are a nurse.
          You will have to respect your notice period.
          I suggest you speak to MOL staff directly.

    Hi Deepak,

    I’m in a real estate company and I have completed one year of employment. I want to join a different company with better opportunities. My employer has no problem with me leaving my current company for better opportunities. However I don’t want to get a ban on my visa (labour ban) by the government. What options do I have and I cannot find another company willing to pay me 5000/- because most real estate companies offer at the most 4000+commission and some may not even offer that. The problem is real estate agents usually work for commission. I want to leave my company without having the labour ban imposed on me what options do I have, is there something my current employer can do that can help me avoid this ban. Please let me know as soon as possible. I would deeply appreciate it.

    Thanks.

    Hi Mr. Deepak,

    I badly need your help. Me and wife applied as a waiter and waitress in a restaurant in Ajman however, upon exiting to Kish (holder of visitor visa ) we received our working visa with a different job title mine was a kitchen helper but my wife remains as a waitress. So I said its okay for as long as we are under one company. But what bothers me now is that we have not signed any contract and we are advised to work after we arrived from Kish. I made several follow up for the contract and even offer letter but they only said okay but they never did. Its been a month now and we are planning to quit the job as they don’t treat their employee equally, they said free food but they only give us 1 meal per day (mix vegetable and rice), 2 off per month and no health benefits. Please give us some feedback as to what we can do in our current situation we are also planning to change job and look for a freezone but were not sure if we are exempted with the labour ban.

    Thanks and Regards,

    Michael

    Dear Deepak, afternoon to you.

    My question to you is regards to 6 months automatic ban. Reference to same, I have completed 2 years of the present contract & the same was renewed for another 2 years last Feb 2014. Contract spec’s are “Unlimited’.

    Present visa is based on higher secondary(12th Commerce) with Salary Package as AED. 10,000(6 years same employer, but quit for a year). I need to know if I get appointed as Senior Project Manager with new employer offering AED. 15,000 – will that activate the said Ban in spite of having a NOC from present employer? I need your kind advise as I wish to action it on priority basis, at least by end of Oct 2014.

    Thanks, Vishal.

    Hi..

My contract is valid till oct 2015.I would like to change my job to another company due to present work atmospehere before Dec 2014. In my labor contract (limited) there is clause that I am not suppose to work on similar field or not possible to start my own business of same kind for another 2 year once I leave present company or completion of contract.

    Please advise. Do I get a ban if I join another company having similar activity.I am working for almost 9 years now and I cant switch my proffession just because of this clause.

          Jasim,
          Although this is a possibility, implementing this will be hard for any company.
          Few companies do make you sign such contracts as you may be handling crucial things at the company which may be affected if you leave the company and join a competitor.
          This is enforceable in UAE.
          All the best.

    Dear Deepak,
    I am A/C technician in Abu Dhabi private company . my monthly salary is 1200. i want to resign from my current job.Because I have to face a lot of inconveniences for a long time in this company,end of the day, after finish our duties, we have to wait 2 or 3 hours until pick up us, because the company does not have any schedule for that. We are working hardly even though the high heat of the sun in the whole day. Sometimes we will get ill, but there are no any excuses at any time. They don’t care about our pain, at least an illness too.and also there is no place or facility to get our breakfast, lunch or dinner so we have to get our meals like animals with dustful, dirty and uncomfortable environment. Other reason is formans and company has unclear procedures.company could not understand employee’s needs or problems.
    i joined the company in 17th of November 2013 and one year complete in this November.I have 2 year contract.. and I gave resignation letter also.
    Please help me to know i will be ban? and also how can avoid it?
    I’m waiting for reply….

    Hello,
    i would like to ask you about the commencement date of the probation period. Does it start on the day i enter UAE on employment visa or on the day my Passport is stamped with the visa. Also i would like to ask you about what to do if “I HAVE NOT SIGNED MY CONTRACT PAPER” or in other words my employer has signed it with my fake signature without informing me. I am looking for a job switch. Can I bring up this issue for getting a NOC. I have also not received my salary since 3 months. So how to go about getting into another firm with a better pay. I’ve been in UAE since 30th March, 2014.

      It starts the day you join the company for work. If your employer has forged your signature, it is a crime. Please approach MOL in this regard.

      Your risk is that you will be enlisted as Absonding(Black Listed) and your chances of returning to UAE are NIL. It is better to cancel visa and exit the country.

    Hi Deepak

    It’s a pleasure to read your articles and blogs on Emirates Diary. I already read the article about the BAN of 6 months if I cancel the contract before 2 years of from my first employer.

    The Issue is this company is in all time loss and didnt pay me for 2 months salary in since May till date.

    I have got a new job in Abu Dhabi and I spoke to my current employer for NOC and he agreed to it. I would like to know will I be able to work for a new company without a ban or do I need to wait for 6 months to get the ban to finish.

    I am a HSC from Maharashtra Board of Education (MUMBAI) specialized in Commerce and my new employer is ready to pay me more than 6000 AED as salary with accommodation and transport.

    I would like to confirm the same details with you in accordance to the labor law of UAE and would like to thank you for your work which really helps us to understand the legal formalities and procedures on UAE.

    Hi Deepak. My Wife was working in a company in Dubai and suddenly they closed the place because they didnt have enough business to run the place. She was working there only for 5 months.. Just want to know whether there will be any BAN for her… it was completely company’s fault not hers.. and if there is how much will be the penalty fees.. If we take an NOC for the employer will it be enough to remove the ban?

    a) Basically , i would like to know if i resign after 1.5 years but before completion of 2 years will i attract ban from the ministry of labour as well from my company?

    b) If the company fires the employee after 1 years of service in this case will the employee get a ban even after Noc

    c) A Clause in the employment contract prohibits in joining rival companies,i.e audit firms within 1 year period after resignation? Will this be effective?

    I have resigned my job and cancelled my visa.. now I’m entitled for a 6 months automatic labour ban..

    However I got a job in JLT free zone DMCC with better salary..
    Will it be possible for that company to process my visa without any problem??

    To Sum it up.. Will DMCC process visa for 6 month labour ban?? the reason why its so critical is because I have booked my flight ticket tomorrow..

      Please be informed that I’ve got an automatic, system-generated 6-month ban after resigning from the current company working for 1 year and 11 months. I came to know this after my new company informed me while they went to apply for a new visa. I have immediately applied for lifting of it attaching NOC, the offer letter and a requisition. The salary I was drawing was Dh.2500 and the new one I am offered is Dh.4000 plus accommodation. Do you think I will still get this ban or is there any way it can be lifted?

      if you have a labour ban you can come to uae and but you cannot work unless it is in freezone. but if you get an immigration ban you cannot enter UAE

    Hi Sir,

    The Ministry of Labor gave me a six months ban, as it shows that I just worked only for 1 year and 4 months in the company. Apparently the truth is I worked for 4 years and 4 months. The previous 3 years was Al Shaya and 1 year and 4 months was Dareen International under Al Shaya Company. Because I worked in Abu Dhabi instead of renewing my Al Shaya contact before, they canceled it and change into Dareen International.

    The question, does the NOC Letter gave my previous company Al Shaya will help to remove the ban? Do I need some requirements together with that letter? To whom I will raise this issue in Labor Department? Please do the needful. Thank you.

        Hello Deepak, i seek urgent help from you.
        I am an expat women on my spouse visa.
        I joined an Events & Media Company on april 22nd, 2014, i have only been given a offer letter, however until now i have not received my wages nor a labor card. its a small team where the owners told me they will be applying for my labor card during the interview. i asked for my salary on 10th June 2014 and they said since i have not met my target i will be paid only minimal, i discussed with them that i need my full salary as i am under probation and getting business in the first month is not possible also they should have discussed this before the pay day and not after 1.5 months.
        Can i take a legal action? since i do not have a labor card?
        my salary was decided to be 8500dhs and now they are delaying even the half of it.
        there is a clause that if i do not meet my target they will mutually discuss a remuneration but i assumed it is not applicable for the first 6 months

    Help, I just submit my resignation with my current company here in Abu Dhabi since I’m moved here, 1 year and 3months the salary always comes late and it’s like been a tradition and worse is that we used to received 2 month delayed salary. And every month end… it’s like you’re begging for what is rightfully yours. Everybody has obligations on the family and need to settle every month end. Nobody in the company has the courage to go to MOL for they know that it will be burden to them as you need to present there and will acquire more time and effort. Fortunately, I got job in free zone area and double the salary I’m receiving and also informed me that ban will not be an issue
    I just want to ask, is there any problem or will my current employer can make any problem about it?

    Hi Mr. Deepak,

    Wow! I’ve been searching the internet for days now and finally had read your article which by the way is helpful to me.

    But please help me one more time, you mentioned this “The new employer needs to submit the employee’s educational qualification certificates, which does not need to be attested at this stage”.

    Meaning it doesn’t necessarily means that the DIPLOMA SHOULD BE ATTESTED. Because my new employer is willing to lift the ban. And I had provided them my High School Diploma which is NOT attested.

    I am so hoping its not a pre-requisite.

    Thanks a lot! More power!

    Mr. Deepak,

    I’ve been hearing some rumor that our company which is located in JAFZA will be implanting a ban – though I am not certain which kind of ban – if any of my colleagues would leave the company without completing the 2yrs contract and aside from this it’s already been imposed that leaving employees will have to pay a fine amounting to 1 and a half month of their full month salary.

    Anyway, my main concern is regarding the BAN for those who has yet to complete 2yrs of service to the company. Is there any truth to this -considering that we are in FREEZONE (the BAN was said to be applicable for a FREEZONE to FREEZONE transfer) and if not, does the company have any ways of implementing this BAN if no criminal case or any violation was made by the employee?

    Please help me clear my mind. You may contact me thru my e-mail address if you have more details to provide or more information to clarify.

I received an offer from another company and basic salary is 10,000 + housing and transportation allowance. my question is, if i resign will i receive a labor ban? and how to avoid it? i am an industrial engineer.

    i have came on a visit visa and i am a graduate worked as an accountant in a contracting company and they sent me back
    four months later, they sent me a labour visa and promised that they will shift it to an accountant visa. Four months have passed and they have not converted the visa to an accountant visa.
    (i) If I resign from the company giving them a month’s notice will I get a six–month ban?
    Ban can be lifted based on person’s qualification

    Good day. I was employeed in Dubai Healthcare City last April 2014 under unlimited contract. However, I want to resign because I have an offer in Abu dhabi. I just finished my medical test and my visa is still for stamping. I already applied for Emirates ID. My concern are the following
    a. can they impose labor or immigration BAN?
    b. how about the visa stamping, do i need to wait for it?

    I am hoping for your immediate response. Thank you and more power

    when they did my visa in sep 2013, my university degree wasn’t out yet.

    I got an offer now for 12,000 with a company in the freezone, and my degree is now out. Will I get a ban if I move provided I give them a month’s notice and get an NOC?

    Hi Deepak,
    I was signed my new job contract as executive secretary for 45 hours per 5 days week . (7:00 am to 4:30 pm)
    And start working since 19th March 2014. I live in Dubai and working on site in Taweelah, Abudhabi.
    Now they are demanding me to work for 10 hours plus half an hour lunch. It means 7 am to 5:30 p.m. (52:30 hours)
    And claim overtime.

    First of all they have not provided any transportation and it costs me a lot. All these things are not at all mentioned before. And moreover private transportation is not easily available to do committed trips everyday.
    Not only that since employer is compelling me to work for more hours without providing transportation. And also I wouldn’t have signed my contract for that long hours since I live in Dubai.
    I am on 3 months probation and my salary is around 12,000/ per month. I just finished 6 weeks in the company working for 45 hours a week with my own transportation paying AED1,500/- per month.
    Even that transport is going to stop my trip and other hand my company is compelling me to work for more hours.
    This is not possible and I have to leave the job.else i may spoil my health.
    My question is:\
    1. If I leave what notice period I must give?
    2. out of 90 days probation I finished 6 weeks
    3. is there ban? And ban for how many months?
    4. is it possible they pay my salary for 6 weeks? (havn’t rec’d salary yet)
    I am in single status and i have no other support. I want to work.

    please advise

    Dear Deepak,

    I just like to get some ideas about changing a job here in Dubai. Currently, I’m working as a secretary for a private company with an unlimited contract. I started with them on Aug 1, 2012 (19 months) however in the labour contract, it is mentioned as from Sept 2, 2012

    And now, I would like to move to another company, which is a LLP located in TECOM, with the same salary and position, will I be getting a ban for some sort of?

    I appreciate your response at the earliest. Thanks!

    If I resign, will the company put a 1 year ban? The new employer informed me that they can lift the 6 months automatic ban as my salary is above 12,000 aed. Please advice.

      No company can impose one year ban without any proof. The should have valid document.
      If it is a limited contract and you need to break before the completion , you have the chances of getting one year ban

    Dear deepak

    I wrote last month. I discovered something yesterday. Like I told you my probation period ended February 15 th so I’m in the process of applying different jobs here n there. I discovered when I looked at mol website that my contract is two years and limited and my profession is cleaning work registered under my bosses company so am not supposed to work as a babysitter/maid but as a company cleaner. I asked her for my contract ofcourse pretending I hadn’t printed from the site and she got a little worried and nervous. My contract states I should work 8 hrs, 6 days, meaning 48 hours a week with one day off. I work more than that. I am entitled to annual leave also but when I asked her she said it depends. What will it come to now because I am aggressively job hunting right now do I tell her about my rights so she can grant them to me or souls I report her to the labor office, can she ban me If I secure a job elsewhere cause she is the one breaking the law. She is lebanese and last but not least she I discovered is evading taxes by paying tha salary stated in the contract through the exchange and paying me extra( not in the government records) on the side then I sign a paper and it’s quickly taken to the office. What do I do. I know she is rich but the law is the law and we r both foreigners. I am compelled to go forward with this. Help me

    Please help me understand that if any of the employers want to terminate employee why should employee get the ban, it seems unfair.

    And also if employee wants to work for bigger organisation on same salary package why cant they do it whats the big deal. employer will be paying for the visa and ministry of labor is getting their fee.

    And what if someone cant go back to there country its seems really bad employers can get away and employee have ban on them.

    thank you

    Best regards
    Raymond Louis

      If the employer terminates the employee without a proper reason then employer should atleast give NOC or release to the employee to work for other company. For other queries you can check with MOL.

    Dear Sir/ Madam,

    I have been working as a nanny for the last five months. February 15th will be my sixth month that means my probation period will be over. I am looking forward to getting a new job, to be precise, one that pays over 5000 dirhams could I be banned. I have a higher diploma from England., speak French and Spanish. And are recruitment agents in the Middle East reliable?

I have signed a contract for 3 yrs and the first 6 months would be my probation period. I started my employment 10 days ago and this is my first job in UAE. Please let me know, what are my options to leave this company? Kindly help!

      If you are not satisfied with the company you can leave the job but make sure your visa is not stamped and you have not signed any labour contract. If it’s done already then you may have the chances of getting an automatic labour ban for six months. Company may also ask you to pay the visa charges.

      Ban can be lifted, however, if your new employer offers the you a better position than the existing one and a salary that suits your qualification, according to a scale set by the ministry.

      The minimum salary in a new position is Dh5,000 for high school diploma holders, Dh7,000 for post-secondary school diploma holders, and Dh12,000 for Bachelor degree holders.

      No fee will be imposed for lifting the labour ban when these conditions are met, according to a senior administrator at the ministry.

    Is the provision under Labour and Immigration similar in nature specifically in providing “working ban” under which one’s contract is not completed for two years? Further, there are some companies who only provide immigration visa to their employees e.g. hospitality career fields.

I got a job offer in a company in jebel ali freezone with a very better package. My notice period is 1 month as per hamriyah contract. After giving my resignation, they are not accepting it. They say that I should work for 3 more months. I however did not agree to this. I have to join the new company within a months time. But they are not accepting nor cancelling the visa. Can they make me work or 3 more months in any legal way ? What should I do now?

    I joined my company in 2011 January under two year limited contract [Professional visa].upon the completion of the contract my labor contract was renewed by current employer in 2013.But i never signed in any of the contract documents.Now i given the resignation with one month notice period on November 2013.But my current employer saying that they will impose a one year ban on me and will not give any gratuity.Also they told me to give compensation to the company for 45 days.
    Recently,I got a offer from new company with 12000 salary and family accommodation.
    I want to know whether my company has rights to impose one year ban on me and if they are banning is there any chance to lift this ban ?

      If you have not signed any contract how can the company renewed your labour contract?
      If it is renewed already you may have the chances of getting ban . Plus you need to pay 45 days compensation to the company.

    I am working for 2 months in a company in ajman and now I am getting married but I do not need to work anymore. My husband can sponsor me and give me the residence visa as his wife. I do not care about a labor ban for 6 months as I do not need to work but is there any way they may issue a immigration ban where I cant even live here with my husband?

If I terminate my contract will I get any ban ???? Or is there any problem if my present company imposes a 1 year ban . Will i be able to enter into UAE with my new visa ????

      If there is any automatic labour ban from ministry of labour i dont think there is any problem. I think ADNOC is a government company and visa will be directly from immigration
      If they impose one year ban from immigration then yes you wont be able to enter UAE

      Once the new visa is issued the old employer cannot impose a ban. But he has to check whether he has already labour ban or not

    Dear Sir,

    Currently I am working in a Company on last 5 months and I am on a Probation Period with 6 months. Now I got a Good Offer from JLT Free-zone Company I am ready to Move on to that company. I have few Questions to be cleared.

    -Do I get a Ban when I am on a Probation Period and will it be bad impact on my profile on MOL.
    -Normally How long will it take to complete the visa cancellation process?
    -My Notice period is 2 months as per my Company Agreement. But I don’t have that much time and need to leave within 3 weeks period of time.
    -On JLT Free-zone Company Agreement they didn’t mention my Annual Leave or Vacation Process. If it is not will it be according to UAE Labour Law or any other scenario ?

    Please Clarify these matters for me. I am confused with these labour laws.

      -Since your new company is in freezone MOL ban wont applicable
      -Normally it take 2-3 working days to complete the cancellation procedure
      Since you were on probation you can leave the company by giving one day notice. Notice period wont applicable during probation
      -It is better to discuss with your new employer about your annual leave and vacation process at the beginning

    In case if i resign from present company before the visa expiry which is end of next month, will there be a ban?
    Also once I join the new company , if I change jobs again before completing 1 year, then will there be a ban? (even if salary is above 12000)

Once back in India, I got another offer from a L.L.C, and they have issued my tourist visa so that I can collect my NOC. I am a graduate. I wanted to know, what if the old company refuses to give me an NOC ? What are my options of lifting this ban which I have till Feb 2014 ? (I am currently in Dubai on tourist visa, and the new company has my passport and original stamped visa in their custody)

      Yes . If company gives you an noc you can join other company. You need to submit all the necessary document to your new company.

      It depends on company. Usually if you resign company will not give you NOC. You should atleast one year in the company. To avoid ban you should have an attested degree which will match MOL salary slab.

    Hi sir. I finish my 4months on my job. Now they take all our identification card without telling us why. Then I just know why when my aunt call them. They said the company will be closed and they will cancel our visa. This is unexpected sir, they didn’t give us a one month notice about the closure. What will I do now sir? Can you please help me and give me a good advice about what will I do? I need a job that’s I go here in UAE.

    Sincerely yours,
    Janine

    Thank you

      If company is closing then you should ask your company to give your release so that you can search for other job without having labour ban.

      Even though you get a labour ban you can join the government company since your new visa will be directly from immigration and not from labour. But please check with your new company.

      You should get release from your old company or you have to get salary as per MOL slab matching your degree or you should get job in freezone.

    Hi Deepak,

    I would like to get an advice from you.

    I am working here in Dubai for 7 months but the problem is, the company is not compensating us on time which means, our 3-month salary has been delayed or should I say they haven’t given it to usg

    Now I found a better job, so is it possible to resign and give my employer a 30-day notice period? I have an unlimited contract. But I am worried, what im my employer will not give response to my resignation? My boss is saying me that if we will resign, he can give us one year to lifetime ban and we cannot work here anymore. And I am worried, what if they will make an issue to me at work so I wont resign?

    Please help. I really want to get out of the company bec.3-months delayed of my salary leads me to financial struggling.

    Regards,
    Vanessa

      Yes you may have the chances of getting ban unless your company provides you release.
