Told to sign con­tract with less time off, or get fired

7 Days in Dubai - - DEAR 7 DAYS -

When I joined the se­cu­rity com­pany I work for, I signed a two-year con­tract, which stated that I have four days off rest­ing in a month but now the com­pany has pre­sented me with a pa­per stat­ing that they are chang­ing the con­tract so I only get two days off a month. To make mat­ters worse, the se­nior su­per­vi­sor threat­ens to ter­mi­nate me if I don’t agree to sign this pa­per, which does not even state how much they will pay me for work­ing for the ex­tra two days. Is this not black­mail? The higher man­age­ment doesn’t re­spond to our com­plains. Will the Min­istry of Labour lis­ten? Alibaba Dubai
