  • I NEED HELP!! i am currently working in a company right now and it is a freezone company but the company is now going to close not for a reason of bankruptcy the reason its because they did not renew there contract… what are our benefits to get from the company regarding the payment??? im only working for them for 10 mos. please help

  • Dear Sirs,
    I am on a unlimited contract, I am Indian national, I am currently working for a AHTECHS a Technical Services company in Dubai as a Mechanical Engineer. Apparently, the boss may be looking to Cancel my visa as the reason given to me is due to low income/dull in business, my current salary is 3000 aed . I have been working at the company for past 14 months. I have been offered a JOB in other company as sales coordinator with a same salary what i currently receive. i would like to know, if I get cancelled visa any time soon.
    1. Will I have to face a 6 month ban?
    2. Will the fact that I could get terminated cause a problem with me getting this new job in the other company.
    3. I came to understand that ban is only for labour group and not for the professional’s
    4. If at all the ban is occurred in my case is there any option of paying penalties to remove the ban applied. Please could you advise me as the laws here are just confusing in my case, I am sure that you shall reply me without fail
    Thanks
    sanjay

    • Sanjay,
      1. Ban in engineers depends on the designation and salary.
      2. No. Getting terminated does not impact your new job prospects.
      3. Again depends as I mentioned in point 1.
      4. No, there is no such option.
