Question - I have worked in a private school as principal for more than 7 years and it was going on very good but two weeks ago I received a letter from the new owner of the school stated that I should work as teacher, as a new principal has been appointed instead of me and in case I don’t agree I’m free to submit my resignation as per the new school owner. I did not accept this decision and therefore I submitted my resignation from work but the owner of school told me that my resignation is against the law and against the decision of the new board especially the new board has already approved the new principal. My question here is; am I in breach of the Labour Law by quitting the work this way and what is the position of the Labour Law in relation to the school new management which downgraded me unduly from my basic position to a teacher? In case the judgment in my favor can I request the court to re instate me again in my previous position as a principal. Please advise me, thank you.

Answer - I would like to clarify to the questioner that according to Dubai Supreme Court the downgrade of employee to a lower rank is a form of arbitrary dismissal and in this event the resignation consider as Read more http://www.gulfadvocates.com/law-article/17/demoted-the-person-what-uae-labor-law-says-

Resignation sent through email is valid as per law.
Question: I have an unlimited contract and have submitted my resignation to my employer as there was some misunderstanding and also due to the wrong place that I was told to work. The employer refused to accept my resignation. Nevertheless, I left the company. My manager called and asked me to report back to work as my resignation was not accepted by the employer. I refused and emailed my resignation to him as well as the management. They neither replied nor acknowledged my resignation. I have heard that they have not accepted my resignation and it can’t be accepted through email. I want to know whether an acknowledgement is necessary from them? Do I need to work during the notice period? Is it a legal way as per the labour law to send a resignation by email? I have not completed two years with my current employer and I am holding a bachelor’s degree. Can I join another company without the NOC from my current employer?

Changing employers not allowed during ban period?

Question: I was employed in Dubai from November 2010 on a two-year limited contract. In January this year, I resigned because I had to go back to my home country for personal reasons. As such, I received a one-year labour ban for not completing my contract. The ban ends this December. Can I return to Dubai on a visit visa before the ban ends? If I find a new employer, will there be a problem getting a work permit? My sponsor is not ready to lift the ban. What are the requirements to apply for a visit visa and what will it cost?

Answer: The questioner may apply for a visit visa through one of his relatives even if there is a ban; the requirements of visit visa as per the Department of Residency and Foreigners’ Affairs are as follows: Three photographs together with the application. Salary shall be Dh4,000 if the sponsor is related... read more..http://gulfadvocates.com/long-detail-article.php?law=5
