  1. I completed 7 months with my employer now. Am I eligible for any emergency leave like for a day or two without a medical certificate.
    last month i took an off as i sprained my leg and was stuck in Dubai and I work in Abu dhabi..but i did make it to work the very next day… But still they deducted my one day pay.
    now i need an off for next week as i have a urgent personal chore to do. But i was told that my pay would be cut.
    I work 10 hours a day with a commute for 3 plus hours every day for a six day/week schedule.
    please let me know what i am eligible of.
    Thank you.

    i was under limited contract with my former company, contract completed and i have moved to a new company but my former company did not pay my flight ticket but promised me to come for it any time i want.Now after 8 months i need my ticket from my former company,is it still possible?

  3. Queries about Medical Test for first time Visa (Residence)

    I am been hired by one of the company in Dubai for HR Coordinator post, I went for my medical, after few days my PRO received called that I have to visit Sonapur Medical center 3 days regularly for my test wherein there where scars found in my Lungs don’t know the reason for it.

    The Doctor says I am physically fit & fine my blood test & sputum are fine I am not harmful, just because I have scares on my lungs they have declared me unfit.

    I have also read blog which says Feb 26th Friday 2016. link http://uaelabourlaw.blogspot.ae/
    ” While the law is unchanged for those seeking new residence visas — applications of those testing positive for HIV, Hepatitis A, B and C or TB are immediately rejected —”
    it says positive or active nothing with scars in lungs.

    I would request you to suggest something wherein i can save my job and place in Dubai, as I am the only bread earner of my family after my Dad expired in April 2015. With lot of family issues. I respect the law and terms of the UAE government but just because i have scares thou infectious I can’t be denied for fitness.
    I am ready for the any test as I am confident that I am physically fit & fine and can work as other people are working, just because of scares which might be life long with me I am been denied for Visa (Employment).

    Please help me with any solution.
