‘Does my em­ployer have the right to tell me where I can and can­not sleep?’

7 Days in Dubai - - DEAR 7DAYS -

I am a 33-year-old fe­male cleaner work­ing in Dubai. We signed a con­tract with our com­pany fol­lowed by a let­ter of com­pany’s rules and reg­u­la­tions, how­ever we never signed any­thing that said peo­ple were not al­lowed to visit their fam­i­lies. I have fam­ily mem­bers in Dubai and on my day off I like to spend time with them. How­ever, the com­pany’s new rule says that if they check in your room and you are not in­side for a night you will be FINED Dhs500. If you en­ter the gate af­ter 10pm you will be fined Dhs200. As long as I am re­port­ing on duty al­ways on time and am do­ing my du­ties well does my em­ployer have the right to de­cide where I am sup­posed to sleep and do they have the right to cut my small salary be­cause I didn’t sleep in the camp? Mis­treated cleaner Dubai is a huge city to be built around this, pos­si­bly the worst part of the SZR. Now, I’m not a mas­ter plan­ner of roads and in­fra­struc­ture but when you have en­tries onto a main high­way and ex­its off within about 100m of each other it does seem to cause a cer­tain amount of chaos, es­pe­cially for Dubai’s thought­ful and pa­tient driv­ers. 2020 and gone Dubai
