UAE Black list and absconding case
UAE Ban system 2016

Welcome to UAE LABOURS community Blog
This Important Article is regarding the new LABOUR LAW for UAE Expats that was announced five months ago, on 1st January 2016.


We are receiving mails and messages from UAE lovers that how can we banned and the Government  of UAE has already announced no more ban system for UAE expatriates?

Questions Mostly People Asked!

Explain us the Terms and Condition in easy way?

Which professions to be count and excluded from it?

So we've decided to write few lines regarding our visitors queries.
 
Before starting please note that this new Rule is based on Mutual Concept/Agreement and the labour ban can be dismissed if the work permit and employment are terminated in mutual agreement between employee and employer.

What is Mutual Agreement?
Employees who deside to terminate  or cancel  job contract/visa with a permission from their employers(Companies) will be permitted to transfer to other companies (employers), even if they have not completed two years at the present company.

Another Point to be noted that the NEW LABOUR BAN Rule is not for all Professions, there are categories that has been divided in skilled and unskilled Employees.

We have divided professions into 5 Categories and levels.

    5. Hello. I worked in Abu Dhabi in Year 2014. I didn't finshed my contract because my employer did not follow the salary agreement based on the contract she filed absconding case against me which later immigration proved no evidence because she held my passport since day 1 of working for them. After that I worked for another employer as a cash desk clerk but my visa application keeps getting disapproved so my employer decided to sent me to kish to exit, before i left i secured a clearance from the immigration to make sur i didn't get a ban. I spent 5 days in kish before my new visa was released. When i was about to enter dubai, they held me in the airport for 3 days my employer don't know why. I was held after the eye scan. And was told by the airport officers i got a lifetime ban. But my employer checked a lot of times and even talked to the immigratiom officers and said i'm not banned. They deported me 3 days after being held. I'm thankful to dubai authorities though because they are all nice. But i still don't know why they forbid me to come back. By the way my first employer is a syrian national.

      Note: This 5000 Salary is for Paper Submission and MOL Contract.

I have my bachelors degree attested but only receiving 4500 aed (30% of 4500 for basic and the rest were alloted for housing and pther allowances). Is this a fair amount knowing that my visa post is different from my real job? If ever someone had offer me better salary and of the same type of business am I allowed to transfer even if they dont agree?. Ive been working with them for almost 3 mons now.

    1. Thank You for Your Comments LeoGirl, appreciated your question
      This question will definitely help readers in future.
      Please note that "MOL only accept what you have signed and what they have in their system, you are skilled labour and in category 3 as per your signed contract.
      In above case, you may own 1 year Ban if resigned without knowing new Contract Terms and Conditions.

      If you got offer and current company wasn't allowing you to resign you will have below 3 options to avoid ban.

      Option 1:
      You must be qualified
      For those who have High School attested Certificate they need 5,000 AED Monthly Salary.
      For those who have Diploma attested Certificate they need 7,000 AED Monthly Salary.
      For those who have Attested Bachelor & above they need 12,000 AED Monthly Salary.

      Option 2:
      If employee joins the same sponsor, automatically 6 month ban will be removed.

      Option3:

      1. Salary delay for 2 months or above.
      2. Company Closed
      3. No end of service

  16. Hello. My question is not really in connection with the ban issues but with other related issues like is it a MUST for the company to pay my two way ticket after I finished my 2 years contract? And during my vacation is it in labor law to provide basic salary and accommodation allowances amount only? Should I not be receiving full amount of salary during my vacation leave regardless from of it allotment? Hope you can help me out with this confusion.

    1. Thank You for Your Comment Mr. Hikmat Jit Kunwar
      An employee working in the UAE cannot be terminated from his services while he is on annual leave.
      If an employer does dismiss a member of his staff while he is officially on leave, it may be considered an arbitrary dismissal and the affected employee can take course to legal action.
      It is not permissible to dismiss or serve notice on an employee during annual leave.
      Where an employer does dismiss or serves notice, it will be possible to challenge the dismissal or notice as being void.
      Do not hesitate to reply for further details if still confused.

    1. If you haven't hired somewhere else may you will face 6 months ban,
      Your category is 3 and you will require 5000 AED of salary to avoid ban along with attested secondary education diploma's.

  69. Why is it that even the UAE government posted minimum salary/offers to qualified professionals either skilled or unskilled workers, still all or other facilities hire their employee with lower salaries/offers? Do the government of UAE have a regulatory body to check on these things? Because many professionals who are working right now receive lower salaries from what is expected to the labour law.

  72. As far as a know, this new rule is also applicable for 2014 and 2015 contracts. I recently resigned from my job which i lasted for just a year and 5months. My visa was printed december 2014. I talked to several MOL customer agents already trying to ensure if i have a ban.
    The agent told me that i already completed more than 6months so Labor ban will not be applied and since i had a mutual agreement with the comoany to termunate the employment, i will not face any kind of labor ban. This is based on my eexperience just recently.

  109. My employer implemented a new salary structure, they removed our basic salary and moved us to commission basis. I did not sign the new agreement so they terminated my contract. Also, they found out that I have a freelance job which is one of the reason they terminated me. I've got my visa on January 22, 2016. Now they want me to pay the visa expense of 5 thousand including the salary they gave me since January (total amount is 20 thousand). They will not cancel my visa and release my passport until I paid them. I'm asking them to give me a chance to look for a new job so I can raise money to pay the visa expense but for the salary they want me to return, I'm still disputing it. What legal actions can I take to allow them to release my passport so I can get another job and raise the money to pay what I owe them. Am I required to pay the visa expense and give back the salary they gave me even if I'm terminated? Also, the 6 months rule shouldn't apply and I shouldn't get a labor ban because I have a college degree and I'm a graduate of business administration. I work as a sales executive and they gave me a salary of 3000. Thank you.

  111. Hello Mr. TAQI RAZA RAJANI We've checked your Visa Details. Your Previous visa was from AL WADHI PLASTER, there was nothing from them against you,
    Your 2nd visa was applied in July 2015
    Company Name: AL MANARA PETROLEUM
    Location: SHARJAH
    Visa Rejection Reason: Unknown
    It seems you have rejection from Immigration department due to some unknown reason. Please apply for visit or tourist visa, and try once again, or send your father to immigration department to check the confirm reason for you, as you are clear in MOL system.
    If you want us to check for you with immigration, it will take sometime

  112. Dear all,
    Hope this message finds u well!
    My question is about 1 year labour ban.
    I've been working for my previous company as a sales associate since october 2015 till march 2016. I resigned during probation period coz i've got better offer from another company. My old company was not angry for it and even they gave me NOC letter. My new position is store super visor and salary is 6000.
    But since 2 months im trying to remove my ban and all what im doing is useless. MOL doesn't want to submit my letter to lift my ban even i have NOC and all my certificates and new offer.
    Their answer is - 1 year ban can not be removed.
    Please advice me what to do? Is there any way to remove my ban?
    Waiting ur respond so much!
