‘No salary for three months, but we get fined if we don’t turn up for work’

7 Days in Dubai - - DEAR 7 DAYS -

“The only way to solve this is­sue and not let this hap­pen to any­one in UAE is that if the com­pany is found de­lay­ing the salary of an em­ployee, the Min­istry of Labour should force the com­pany to pay thrice the amount of salary for the months de­layed. Also the vic­tim should be of­fered job place­ment/of­fer by the Min­istry of Labour in case the pre­vi­ous em­ployer de­cides to fire his/her em­ployee. The com­pany should be warned and the re­fund­able se­cu­rity fee paid by the com­pany should be with­held by the min­istry as pun­ish­ment.”


“Why do peo­ple put up with this? Some­times you are your worse en­emy! As soon as you are not paid, why do you even go to work the next day, let alone go to work for the next two months with­out fur­ther pay. I’m sorry but un­til you take re­spon­si­bil­ity for what you should be legally en­ti­tled to, then you only have your­self to blame.”
