‘I was made to sign two con­tracts so boss could bend the labour rules’

“Only the orig­i­nal labour con­tract is recog­nised un­der law. Any spe­cial terms must be ap­pended to the orig­i­nal con­tract. It may not be as easy to dis­pute this, but the Min­istry of Labour is on your side. Not much good if they fire you and send you home though.”

SI­MON LEIPER

“Your sec­ondary con­tract is in­valid and not en­force­able. It is just used as a scare tac­tic. Call MOL hot­line and re­port. They can­not fire you and the com­pany will be pe­nal­ized and your salary re­versed and your work­ing hours re­versed and your back pay given. Sim­ple.”

AHMED CHOHAN

“UAE and es­pe­cially Dubai need min­i­mum wage bill law. For how long should we be de­lib­er­at­ing on this is­sue. Am fed up!!”
