      Dear S.M

      Mandatory retirement age is 60 years , if your employer want to keep you they can renew your visa up to age 65 years .

    You say that the retirement age is now 65 in the UAE. My husband’s company says that they have their own policy and that is to retire all of their employees when they reach the age of 60. I know that some like my husband want to work until 65 ( retirement age in our country is now at 66) . What should my husband do? Is it legal for companies in the UAE to have their own retirement policies?

    Is there any possibilities to stay and work at the age of 65 if your position in the company is only airconditioning foreman. Can you please clarify it. If the age of 65 can apply only with those professional . And what about the foreman profession in a private company. Can my husband still get a visa and work till he reach 65. Thank you and god bless.

      Susan,
      It depends on your physical fitness and the company to apply for extension of visa beyond 65 years.
      usually immigration approves 1 year visa.

    Dear Sir,

    I am on a limited contract (joined on 8th Nov 2014) and have resigned before the completion of my probation (on 5th May 15). In my resignation letter I have mentioned about giving the notice of 1 month and 6th June being my last working day.

    But today my manager called has has informed me that he will make my last working day as tomorrow (14th May 2015). Kindly guide if this is ok or will it be considered as shortfall in notice on my part.

    Also my current salary is AED 5000 and i have an offer of AED 12500 please advice on any implications.
