uae ban, visa ban in uae, uae absconding persons list, absconding case in uae,

It is important to know when an employee (worker) fails to return to work after annual leave without
giving proper notice which must be through email or written message (for record), their name to be
marked in UAE absconding persons list (they can be marked as absconder) because if you did not
return to work, you are in breach of your employment contract.

Article 120 of UAE Labour Law states:
“The employer may dismiss the worker without prior notice in any of the following cases:
Should he be absent without valid cause for more than 20 non-consecutive days in one year,
or for more than seven consecutive days.”

No End of Service Benefits:
As per UAE Labour Law, Article 139, “The worker shall be deprived of his end-of-service gratuity
in the following two cases:
Should he be dismissed from service for any of the reasons set forth in Article 120 hereof,
or should he leave his employment in view of avoiding the dismissal therefrom in accordance with the said Article.”
This confirms that you are not entitled to an end of service gratuity for your precious time with
the company, as it is forfeited due to the circumstances of his unauthorized departure.

You can be fired for taking unauthorized leaves in UAE.
Federal law no. 8 of 1980 regulating employment relations in the UAE (the 'Employment Law').
“An employer may, at its discretion, grant emergency leave. An employer can terminate an employee
without notice if he avails unauthorized leave without a valid reason.

Further, an employee shall lose his remuneration in the event he does not join the employment
immediately after his leave.
This is in accordance with article 89 of the Employment Law, which states:
"Subject to the provisions of this law, any employee who fails to resume work immediately after the
expiry of his leave shall automatically forfeit his remuneration for the period of his absence, with effect
from the day following that on which the leave expires."

I send all the documents,medical certificate which justifies that I can't come back and to cancel my visa.Now it's been 5 months already since I exit UAE.
    My question is how would I know if my company will put my in absconding case since I'm in Philippines ?
    And if even I have plan To come back to UAE,should I face any problem in the immigration?
