quit job

Question 1:

I am employed under a limited period contract for 3 years and I have asked my employer not to renew the same…then who shall pay the costs of the return ticket? 

As per the ARTICLE (131) of UAE Labour LawOpens in a new tab. Expenses for repatriation of an employee to his place of origin or any other place agreed upon by both parties shall be borne by the employer. If the employee after the end of his contract takes up employment somewhere else, repatriation expenses upon termination of his service shall be paid by the last employer subject to the provisions in the preceding clauses, and if the employer has failed to repatriate the employee and has not paid the repatriation expenses, the competent authorities shall do this at the employer’s expense by way of attachment. If the cause for termination of contract is attributed to the employee, his repatriation will be arranged at his own expense if he has the mean to pay.

 If you have completed your limited period contract and if you don’t want to renew the same  then the employer must be obliged to pay your return tickets. And if the worker has joined some other work, then his new employer should be obliged to pay his said return tickets.

Question 2:

If I worked under limited or unlimited period contract and submitted my resignation, shall I have the right to ask for return tickets?

If you work under limited or unlimited period contract and submitted your resignation , then you should bear the costs of the return tickets.

Question 3:

I have completed my labour contract, whereas there is a stipulation in such labour contract showing that my employer should bear the costs of my family return tickets in addition to the baggage shipping costs, have I the right to bound him to the same?

If there is any stipulation showing in your labour contract  that your employer should bear the costs of your family return tickets in addition to the baggage shipping costs, then yes you have the right to claim your said cost from employer.

Question 4:

As for the return tickets, shall my employer have the right to return me to the capital of my home country or to the place he has already brought me from?

Yes your employer has the right to return you to the place from where he brought from.

Question 5:

My employer has cancelled my labor card, and I am now present at the labor camp, but he asked me to leave this accommodation, What is your opinion about this?

In this case only after paying all your work dues your employer shall have the right to ask you to leave the accommodation.

  3. Hi Deepak,

    I was working in a company through an outsourcing agency Visa from February 2016. I have completed my probation period. Now the company is closing down and they have terminated almost every staff. Now I am waiting for the appointment for cancellation from the agency. I have 3 questions.
    1. Is the outsourcing agency liable to give me an air ticket back to my home country?
    2. As it was an immediate termination without notice period, am I eligible to get one month salary? The agency is saying to submit the timesheet from the company for the notice period signed by my manager. The company didn’t allow me to serve so the company won’t give the same.
    3. Do I have the right to not to sign the cancellation paper if the agency isis not fulfilling the above mentioned points. What should I do If else?

    Can you please advice me with this.

    1. Emiliano,
      I am not sure what kind of contract you are on.
      Suggested reading:

  28. Hi Mr. Deepak!

    My husband is working in a freezone area and he got a new job offer, he is planning to resign now, but his boss told him that after his cancellation he will send him back to origin. Is it possible for him to be send back to origin country even if he was just employed by his boss here only in UAE? And what other option can he suggest to his boss just not to send him back to origin so he can transfer to the other company without hassle?

    Thank you in advance!

    1. Helen,
      Companies can ask employees to exit once the visa is cancelled.
      You have little choice here.
      The new company can send him visa when he is outside UAE.

      1. Dear Deepak,

        I got cancellation documents,original passport from my employer. On the cancellation document they mentioned before 16-03-2016 I should leave the country.

        My employer booked airticket on 22-02-2016 (day after tomorrow), and they took sign on company letter head that ” I assure I will be traveling as per the air ticket confirmed date as required by the UAE law”.

        Is it any problem If I don’t travel on their ticket? Or Is it legally valid by that letter?

        Please give me feedback on this and thanks.

    -If she resign, will she paid something ?

    Thank you very much for your reply

    1. Francis,
      1. Not sure what you mean!
      2. SAIF zone companies have their own laws; I am not aware of it.

  34. I came to Dubai on visit visa in October at the same time i found a job in a private company and my employer gave me the offer letter and asked me to start working on a visit visa on the offer letter it was mentioned that i am on a unlimited contract, I worked for a month than exited the city my visa was processed now am looking forward to change the job because i am getting more than 5000 aed package and i am a graduate but when i called the MOL to check about my contract they told me i am on a limited contract but my offer letter states unlimited i want to take up the new offer what can i do in this i was misrepresented about the contract..

    1. Ron,
      WHatever is mentioned in the labour contract is the final.
      I have said many times not to take offer letter as the final word. Under MOL, labour contract is the agreement.

    1. Jerelyn,
      You will most probably have a labour ban.
      But, if you resign, you do not need to pay any charges to the company.

  38. Hi again,
    I already went to my previous employer to settle amicably, but, still, they don’t want to give my passport back and they still don’t accept my resignation even though I already served my 30 days notice period. they still do not want to let go of me. They also threatened me of a absconding (AGAIN!) and a lifetime ban if I continue with my decision. I feel that I am already being harass by my employer. BTW, I already filed a complaint request to the Ministry of Labor, but still waiting for their SMS.


  39. Hi,
    I am under a limited contract and will end on Dec 2015. (I started in the company August 2013) Recently I resigned (sent through e-mail because they didn’t want to accept my resignation and they replied to that email) because a better offer came and its a Freezone company plus double the salary. I already served my notice period to my last company. after that, I attended a training and ready to work for a new company (FZ) but my previous employer said that she will not cancel my visa and she will file an absconding case. Is that possible? By the way, they have my passport also.
    Need your advise.

    1. Alvin,
      To file absconding case, the company should prove that you have not informed and fled.
      You should keep in touch with the company officials through emails and phone calls and ask them to cancel the visa.
      Also make sure to keep MOL informed about the violation by your company.
      Your passport should be with you.

  40. Thnks for answering my questions previously. Can you advise me what to do? The new company is willing to take me in but they said i need to cancel my labour card from previous company. If in case i cancel my labor card , can they lift my labor ban by paying the fine? They said to retract my complaint from previous employer. Should i pursue my complaint from my previous employer? Please help.

    1. Joy,
      I am not too sure about lifting ban.
      You should do as guided by your new employer.

  41. Hi, i have additional question. What if my previous employer will not show on appointment with the labour, can i cancel my labour card by myself? How long will it take to cancel it?
    What happen if i just retract my complain?
    How long will it take before the case will finish if i continue the process? Because it just taking me so long every 2 weeks per appointment?
    Hope you can answer anll my questions.
    Thank you again.

    1. Joy,
      1. The MOL will decide what to do.
      2. Nothing.
      3. Depends on the department. I can not mention any timeframe.

  42. I am on husband visa and stop working after 14 mons because the company is not giving salary for 3 mons. I filed the complain and next appointment is on April 7. I cannot contact anymore the previous employer. I found a job that willing to take me in but they said i need to cancel the labor card from previous company before they can apply for a new one. My questions are:
    1. How and what i need to cancel my labor card?
    2. Can my ban be remove?
    3. What happen if the old employer will not show up on 2nd appointment?
    Please advice.

    1. Joy,
      1. You will have to get in touch with your previous employer to cancel you labour card.
      2. Depends on your salary and qualifications. Read:
      3. It will still delay the process.

  43. Quick And Urgent Help Reply.Please

    1. Zain,
      Labour ban under limited contract can not be withdrawn

  44. Hi Deepak!

    I am currently employed in a limited 2 year contract (Dec 2013 – Dec 2015). I don’t want to renew so I’m planning to give a one month notice. The reason is I want to find a better opportunity.

    My questions are:
    1. Is one month notice applicable?
    2. Does my current employer will give me a ban?
    3. Am suppose to go back to my home country since I’m not renewing or I am free to look for another job and just need to wait for the cancellation of my employer?

    Thanking you in advance.

    1. Princess,
      1. Please read your contract, for notice period clause. If not mentioned, it is better to inform employer about your decision.
      2. No. If you complete your contract, there will be no labour ban.
      3. Once your visa is cancelled, you will have 30 days to exit the country.

      1. Thank you for the reply.

        I have following questions, I hope I will get a response again. 🙂

        1. My contract says that I should have a 1 month notice if I’m not going to renew but the HR in our office have told me that I should inform our company about it 5 months before it ends. Because if the company won’t find a new employee to take my place, they won’t allow me to resign. Is it acceptable?
        2. On that 30 days, can I look for another job or I really have to exit the country?
        3. My colleague was hired in Dubai when she was on visit visa. She don’t wanna renew and wants to go home once she finish the contract. Who will shoulder the air ticket for her? On her contract it is the company (from the point of origin).

        Awaiting for your reply 🙂

        1. Princess,
          1. Not acceptable. Your resignation is your choice. And what type of contract are you on?
          2. Depends on what your company wants to do. Some companies require employees to exit after cancellation of visa.
          3. It is again company policy to provide air ticket to employees who have resigned. However, air ticket is provide once in 2 years by many companies.

          1. Hello Deepak,

            1. I’m on a Limited Contract (2 years). I’ll finish it on Dec 2015.
            2. Meaning to say if they require me to go home since I’m not renewing my contract, I have no choice but to follow? What if I have found a new job and they’re willing to process my visa as soon as possible?

            1. Princess,
              1. OK.
              2. You need to inform your company on your intention not to renew and provide notice period as per contract. You could come back if you get a new job. If you complete your limited contract, you will have no ban.

          2. 1. Limited contract (2 years).
            2. If they require me to exit, I have no choice but to follow? For instance I have found a new job and they want to process my visa, they won’t be able to do so?

            Thank you for all the replies. 🙂

  45. I finished my two years under unlimited contract and i gave notice that i will not renew, and my employer said the i should shoulder my ticket going back home..

    Is it righy

  46. dear sir i have finished my 2 year contact . this month i have renewed my i have the right to ask my ticket & anual leave . if i ask will they give me the ticket to me .

    1. Khadeeja,
      Depends on company policy whether they release air ticket allowance upon completion of 2 years.

  47. Hello deepak,
    i just want to know what will going to happen if my employer failed to cancel my ewmployment visa even we finished settled already in mol and promised to cancel me immediately what should i do?
    i appreciate your reply thanks in advance
    more power!

  48. hello deepak i just want to ask what will going to happen if the employer failed to cancel my employment visa after we settled in mol and promised to cancel my employment visa immediately but my employer told me that he can cancel my employment visa in next month what should i do ?

    i appeciate your reply and thanks in advance more power!

    1. Sulpico,
      Best thing is to ask the reason from employer.
      And then approach MOL if you are not satisfied with the reason.

  49. Hi deepak. i am on a 2 year limited labour contract with a company in abu dhabi. i’ve completed 16 months and now having a better oppurtunity elsewhere want to move. my questions are :
    1. being an engineer, do i get one year ban from employer despite giving the compensation?
    2. Will the one year ban be removed if the new offer is 12k+ for a degree holder?


    1. Muhammed,
      if you break limited contract, you will receive a ban.

      1. Thnx deepak for your reply.

        For clarity, can you confirm whether the one year ban is applicable to engineers as well?

      Penalty will be as per company policies and your contract.

          Since you have signed the contract, you are bound by it.

I am currently working at Jebel Ali Freezone for 4months and half, and I wish to resign due to the environment and issues regarding employee and employer relationship is not really healthy at all. It doesn’t make sense if I cannot perform my job well, due to some issues and rude boss especially in a verbal manner. Since in my Offer letter it stated that all my visa expenses are shouldered by them since they get me through my home country and let my siblings to sign as my sponsorship,then because they dont want me then to undergo me in an agency. Can I resign without paying anything?

    1. Yes if your are not satisfied with the job atmosphere you can resign. I don’t think there will be any issue with resignation
